he Bible uses the word “breeches” to refer to pants. Our modern day spelling of this word is britches, such as in the expression, “he is a little too big for his britches.” Here are several mentions from the Bible of men wearing britches (pants):

“And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach:” – Exodus 28:42

According to this verse, the priests needed to wear pants in order to cover their nakedness (their loins and their thighs). The coats or robes that they wore in addition were outer garments worn on the upper body. They did not cover their loins and their thighs completely which is why pants were needed. The pants in Exodus 28:42 went down to the knees.
