Its short for "Knickerbockers"

Best Answer

Knikkers are typically short pants, in the US, news boys wore short pants called Knickers or Knickerbockers. Undies over there are called that as a form of slang as to pertaining to what a woman might have beneath her skirt, a short pantaloon tied with a drawstring on each leg and the waist, and looked a bit like a boys short pants.
