Non-sequitur: What is with these pants?

Jodhpurs

I’ve been watching a lot of Batman: The Animated Series (on DVD) and I came across one of the episodes with Talia and Ra’s Al Ghul. Here’s a screenshot of Talia and Bruce Wayne in a shop somewhere in the desert searching for her father, but I’m really getting stuck on these pants. What is with them? Why do they do that weird thing, sticking out mid-thigh? They’re like weird desert camel-riding pants… I feel like I’ve seen them before in movies on people as some sort of riding pants… if anybody’s got any ideas, please please let me know. It’s starting to drive me crazy.
