This style of pants is very old, going back thousands of years. I'm not a white American male and have no hang ups about such clothing. (I don't mind wearing bright colors, either. I often wear cadmium yellow and on occasion pink, and I think I do look good in them!) I just love using many of the colorful old names of such clothing and think that "knickerbockers", "breeches", "plus-fours", "britches", "breeks", and most especially "galligaskins" are wonderful names. "Capris" were originally specifically designed for women by the fashion designer Sonja de Lennart in 1948 and became known as "Capris" because it was popular to wear them on the island of Capri back then. These were definitely men's pants for most of history and there's nothing "unmanly" about them, whatever that means! In the recent movie by Spielberg, "Tin Tiin", Tin Tin wear Plus-Fours.
