    Default which one is more common

    some singular nouns ends with 's' such as trousers, glasses,.... I have heard and read the phrase 'a trousers' and here is a qoute from a site as well:
    "For a very simple evening, even between buddies (like evenings of clubs...) skirt and top will make the deal : choose a moulding skirt and top. You can choose a moulding trousers and top too if you feel better with a trousers."
    but is it common between english speakers to use this phrase (a trousers - a glasses)??

    Totally incorrect.

    A pair of trousers or trousers. (Trousers always have two legs, hence the plural, just as spectacles/glasses come with two lenses).
