    Yes, but now they’re called “flared leg”.

    My 12-year-old daughter wears a flared-sleeved shirt that I wore in the ’70s!

    Yep, they’re called flare now. I actually really like the style, almost all my jeans are flared.

    There are some things man was not meant to know. Women’s fashions is one of them.

    If a sailor is swept overboard, bell bottoms can be easily slipped off in the water, and by filling the legs with air, they can even act as a flotation device in an emergency. Also, while wading through water, bell bottoms can be rolled up on the legs to stay dry. Lastly, the longer length of bell bottom pants helps protect boots from damaging sea spray.

    USN 65-95 During Boot Camp we actually practiced the flotation maneuver during water training
