    I'll have some of that

    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of "I'll have some of that" in this conext:

    A: (to C) you may change some clothes. His clothes fits you.
    B: He doesn't keep any clothes here.
    C: I'll have some of that.

    I haven't seen him taking some of anything. Does this expression has an idiomatic meaning?

    Thanks a lot.

    "I'll have some of that" is a colloquial expression, the exact meaning of which depends on the context. It doesn't seem to fit that context at all.

    Can it mean "That suits me"?

    What's happening off-camera? Maybe she's seen a man [or a woman, if she's that way inclined] that she fancies.
