A matter of words

Trousers, pants, britches, breeches....

I spend time trying to figure out which word fits best. 'Britches' sounds to common -- too hick for my character, 'breeches' sounds like something a fellow wears in a bodice-ripper, 'pants' sounds too modern, and 'trousers' sounds too stuffy.

I think I'm stuck with trousers, though, 'cause Roald absolutely refused to wear the kilt I offered to write into his wardrobe.

You have a character named Roald? That _rocks._

Totally agree on the terminology thing. Meh.

I can never find the right word for pants.
