English - Etymology

Attested since the 1610s, from the earlier form _trouzes_ (attested since the 1580s), extended from _trouse_ (1570s), with plural ending typical of things in pairs, from Middle Irish _triubhas_ (“close-fitting shorts”), of uncertain origin. The unexplained intrusive second -r- is perhaps due to the influence of _drawers_.
