    Dark, clean denim

    "I like Dark, clean denim"

    Does it mean a dark coloured denim jeans that is clean?

    Or does "clean" means that the jeans is a plain simple/traditional jeans without fancy designs?

    Both of the meanings are correct but it's important to see their context .

    EnglishLearner, if you are going to continue to answer other learners' questions, it's important that the majority of your posts are written correctly. Please learn the difference between "true" and "correct". Do not put a space before a full stop. Concentrate on your use of articles.

    "I like

    Does it mean a dark-coloured denim jeans that is are clean?

    Or does "clean" means that the jeans is are a plain simple/traditional jeans without fancy designs?


    1) There is no reason to capitalise "dark".
    2) I haven't heard "clean" used as a general term for jeans. For me, that just means they're not dirty but that would be a strange thing to say. I would assume that your second interpretation is correct - plain jeans with no fancy designs.
    3) Note that "jeans" takes the plural. "A pair of jeans" takes the singular.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
