Cole Parker Posted February 15, 2014 Report Share Posted February 15, 2014 This may be silly, but it has me wondering. Can anyone tell me why we say, 'a pair of underwear'? I mean, it's one item, whether it's a pair, ahem, of boxer shorts or briefs. So, why a pair? A pair of socks, sure. But briefs? Why? C Quote Link to comment
