    Re: in/on black

    Clothes come in different colours, styles, sizes etc.

    Do you have this T-shirt in black?
    Do you have these boots in a size 6?
    I bought the same shirt in three different colours.
    I need a pair of jeans this colour and this length but in a slightly different style.

    "I need a pair of jeans in this colour and this length but in a slightly different style." This is correct.
