English term or phrase: braes
'He took off his hose, cast them aside and stretched out wearing only his braes, letting the breeze cool his skin.'
Our brave medieval hero lord is seducing his bondswoman demonstrating the skills of an experienced despite the six years spent as a slave in distant lands.
Does 'braes' stand for modern shorts?

Дорогой Олег!
Есть такие фишки:
...In cold weather women could wear trousers (hose and _b_r_a_e_s_) under their dresses. (см. www.lothene.demon.co.uk/school2.html)
...What did Vikings wear? Mens' clothing might be tunics, braes and hose (instead of trousers) and some kind of hat.
(см. www.lothene.demon.co.uk/faq.html )
... For men plaid braes (pants) with an embroidered shirt... (www.florilegium.org/files/CLOTHING/sum-clothing-msg.text)

На русском это может звучать как штаны (или панталоны, короткие лосины, посмотреть контекст очень важно), иногда даже "короткие штаны".

Особенно хорошо описывается эта одежка на сайте

...what we currently wear but much of it should be easy ... addition to the chemise, men often wore braes (loose linen kneelength pants with ties ...

нижние штаны (подштанники) на подтяжках


Explanation:
Обыскав все, что возможно, я нашел только "склоны, откосы". Возможно, в книге опечатка и надо braces, которое Jonathon Green в Slang Down the Ages дает как longish underpants with suspenders, отсылая нас к 17 веку. В приведенной книге автор мог использовать это слово для более раннего периода.
