Re: Pants

NO, not underpants I mean proper pants, aka trousers.
They were nice pants too, combat camouflage type. I really liked those pants. Actually I nicked them off my son as he never wore them. It was not a great loss really because the pants were only from Primark. I was thinking of getting another pair though as they were really comfy.
Before you say the pants split because I am too fat, IT IS NOT TRUE. I have lost 6 pounds since New Year so all my pants are a better fit these days.

Excuse me! The thread title was "Pants". My posts were about pants. The only pants I know are the things that go on your legs.
Or is "Pants" a new technical definition for something to do with broadband speed?

To the English, pants=underwear. What you wear on top are trousers.

Hmm, I'm English, but;
Underpants = underwear
Pants = leisure trousers/sportswear
Trousers = erm, Trousers.

Re: Pants - Off topic and not suited to a serious part of the forum

if you are  a lady then pants are knickers Tongue
or briefs.  But then briefs are also what Barristers get to take up a case at court.
The English language is not always clear.
