    Exclamation a piece or an item

    "he was sent to prison for stealing only three pieces/items of clothing" . Can either "pieces" OR "items" be used in this sentence? are they interchangeable?

    You can use either one. Note my corrections to your post. Start every sentence with a capital letter. Don't leave a space before a full stop.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
