Scientists discovered the world's oldest pants, and they're totally fashionable
The world's oldest pair of pants was recently discovered in China’s Tarim Basin, and I gotta admit that even though they are roughly 3,300 years old, they still look pretty cool.
The pants are made of wool and were discovered in a graveyard. Archaeologists believe these pants were specifically crafted for horse-riding. The trousers feature elaborate designs and a belt-like waist that was fastened with strings. They were made with three separate pieces of cloth, with some areas of the pants having more fabric than others.
Many of these findings were written up by Ulrike Beck from the German Archaeological Institute in Berlin. The team also discovered other ancient items including an intricate fur coat (below).

Many experts believe that the pants were created by Central Asian nomads. The good news is that if you put these pants on today, people would just think you were a very deep poet.
