    where's my clothes

    Is this informal speech if I say 'where's my clothes' instead of 'where are my clothes'?

    Yes. Don't write it; and don't say "Where is my clothes?" in full.

    Re: where's my clothes

    Is this use only with 'where' or can it be used in all questions with plural nouns?
