What is bootcut?

I believe it has to do with a type of jeans.


Answer by  alz (2329)

You are right, a bootcut is a cut of jeans. It is a straight leg jean, that doesn't flare out at the ends like a bellbottom would. It bootcut fits tighter to the ankle than one of the flares would. However, it is not like a skinny jean that hugs the leg the entire way down.

Boot-cut jeans get wider below the knee, so that they can be easily worn over a high pair of boots. Usually the leg opening is between 18 and 20 inches wide. They seem to be the most common kind of jeans sold in stores these days. The widest leg opening is called flare.

"Bootcut" is a cut of pants (mostly jeans) that are more fitted through the hip and thigh area and flare out very slightly below the knee. The flare is very subtle and barely noticeable. The idea is that they flare out enough to give you just enough room to fit a pair of boots under them.

It refers to the width of the pant leg on your jeans. They are wide enough to comfortably fit over boots.
