    Default Can I say :How much are two jeans?

    Hello, teachers:
    Except for : How much do two pairs of jeans cost?
    I am wondering if I can say :
    How much are two jeans?
    Does it correct and natural?

    Could you please confirm it for me?
    Thanks a lot!

    There's no such thing as one jean, so there's no such thing as two jeans.

    You can have one Jean (a person's name), one gene (though I don't know what you'd do with it), or one Gene (another person's name). But you can't have one jean.

    How much is a pair of jeans?

    How much for two pairs? (if you are hoping for a reduced price for quantity)

    else

    How much is (that for) two pairs? (when you need them to do the arithmetic!)
