    Pair of pants

    Can someone explain to me, why they are called a pair of pants, and not just a pant, being singular??
    And a pair of trousers, a pair of knickers, a pair of shorts??
    It cant be because of the fact they have two holes for your legs, as it would be a pair of shirts for the arms???
    Anyone???

    or a pair of bras for your knockers ? :w00t:

    Originally a "pant" referred to just one of the legs. In medieval times, pants were worn as two separate leggings

    there you go!
