Boot cut jeans
The boot cut jeans became part of the working outfit for American sailors during the 20th century; worn to perform menial tasks so that the sailors could get them dirty without worrying. The flower children of the 1960s and 70s adopted boot cut style, and soon it became the hippies’ uniform. As the 1980s rolled in, replaced by tapered and skin-tight jeans. Nevertheless, in the late 1980s, boot cuts were back but named flares.
