I've been shopping for a leather jacket and I keep seeing them called "open-bottom' jackets. what does that mean? how is it different from a regular jacket?

"open bottom" means there is no elastic to make the jacket snug against your waist

It doesn't mean there's a hole for your legs to go through? That was my bet.
