I was checking out a bunch of the interesting articles that come from the Texas Cooperative Extension service here and noticed a term that is new to me.

It's in a brochure on altering pants and at the end of page three, continuing on page 4, mentions "Large pones on the upper thigh"

I'm guessing this is what I've heard called 'saddlebags', but even a cursory look at Google didn't help much. Is this a Spanish term, maybe?

Maybe it was a typo and they intended to say, "large BONES." That would be my guess, but I don't understand why they wouldn't say, large hip bones or something else. Just my two cents!

I can't help with your Pones but thanks for the link. This looks like a useful resource.

If it's the same pdf I just looked at, it can't be a typo, they use it 3 times including as a headline. Their description of it and the drawings of the problem sounds like saddlebags to me. But I've never heard of it. The only pone I ever heard of is made with cornmeal!

Maybe it refers to the result of eating too many cornpones.

Ye gods, how did they even find this word to use it in a sewing article?? In the big old Webster's Third New International Dictionary from 1961, the third definition of the word 'pone,' after discussions of an Algonquin word for cornbread and a cardplaying term, is 'pone,' meaning 'a lump or swelling.' The origin is apparently unknown.

Whoever wrote this pants article should be contacted and given a rap across the knuckles with a ruler. Clarity is the first objective in writing.

Phooey!

As a native Texan, I have to say maybe it's a Texas thang ya'll. I heard it growing up but haven't heard it since I left there.

Phooey!

Let me preface my comment by saying I am not from Texas and have never even visited Texas, but I suspect "pones" might make perfect sense to sewers in Texas who are familiar with Southern Corn Pones as a traditional food item. I'm going to assume that high hip "saddle bags" or "fluff" is the about same shape as as a corn pone. This may be a commonly used word in the South to describe that figure "flaw", so common that it never occurred to the author the term would be unknown to sewers.

Maybe someone from the South can clarify. I'm just guessing.

How about Baguettes on the high hip?

I'm a Southerner and that's a term I use to hear my grandmother use. If someone had on short shorts, she would say that their "pones" were barely covered.
