Best Answer

The sans-culottes were a group during the French Revolution that consisted of the common people (meaning those not part of the aristocracy and royal family). The name translates directly to "without breeches". Breeches were a very aristocratic type of fashion, usually matched with stockings and gold-buckled shoes. This public display of wealth through attire was clearly not favored by the revolutionaries. Therefore, being "without breeches" was an anti-aristocratic badge of pride. The commoners wore simple full-length trousers as opposed to elaborate attire.

The Sans-culottes were the radical left-wing partisans of the lower classes. They made up the bulk of the French army during the early years of the French Revolutionary Wars (1792-1802).
