Differences between edit and object modes


I can usually work out my problems in time, but this has me puzzled. I thought I had deleted the underlying legs on this model, leaving trousers. When the foot is moved, the trousers hover at a weird angle and in fact cannot be weight painted. Also, the trousers vanish in edit mode but re-appear in object mode again. On rendering, the trousers appear again. Obviously I have done something to upset Blender, but what? Any help would be much appreciated.

The trousers are hidden in edit mode. Select the leg object. Go to edit mode. Then Alt-H to unhide them.

Thank you so much for your quick reply. Of course, you are correct, I really thought I had tried alt H but I obviously hadn’t in edit mode. You have saved me a lot of time and I appreciate it.
