Tetsaveh

 28:41
 28:42
28:42 Also make linen pants to cover their nakedness, reaching from their waists to their thighs.
Va'aseh lahem michnesey-vad lechasot besar ervah mimotnayim ve'ad-yerechayim yihyu.



Commentary:

pants
  These were closed pants, reaching from the waist to the knees (Niddah 13b; Yad, Kley HaMikdash 8:18). They had laces around the knees where they could be tied (Ibid.; Josephus, Antiquities 3:7:1). Others, however, maintain that it was tied at the waist (Tifereth Yisrael, Kelelay Bigdey Kodesh). The common priest thus had a total of four vestments, and the High Priest eight (Rashi).
