What does Bell Bottoms mean?
A jeans style born in the late ‘60s and popularized in the 70’s by brands such as Landlubber Jeans. This style was tight at the waist and thighs and the trousers flare out from the knee down. The name ‘bell bottoms’ presumably originates in the fact that the legs of these jeans take on the shape of a bell or trumpet when viewed from the side.
