    Two similar sentences about clothes

    Hi guys, i have problem with sentences below .
    He has blouse and jeans on.
    He's wearing blouse and jeans.
    He's getting dressed in blouse and jeans.

    Is any differences between those sentences? I'm trying using and learning phrases verbs.

    In may I'll be have very important exam and I'm trying to prepare in any way. I haven't any teacher so It'll be difficult task. And I know, My english is very weak but I loved this language.

    Edit. Three sentences , should be in title.

    Men don't usually wear blouses. Try "shirts". There should also be an indefinite article before "shirt".

    Re: Two similar sentences about clothes

    Also, if you are "getting dressed", you don't have everything on yet, and you're not wearing everything. So, 3 means something different. (By 3, I mean your third sentence. It's best to label your example sentences if you want us to talk about them.)

    He has a shirt and jeans on.
    He's wearing a shirt and jeans.
    These sentences mean the same. The third, as Raymott says,is different- the person is putting their clothes on and has not finished dressing.

    Re: Two similar sentences about clothes

    Of Coruse ! It's obvious.
    Instead sencente number 3, I wanted to write. - "He's dressed in XXX".
    I'm priactising how to describe pictures.
    Could you tell me which form is the most common? And which sentences sound more naturally ?

    - He's dressed in....
    or
    - He has (clothes) on.
    or
    - He's wearing .... .
    I think that all sentences can be use to describing pictures.

    And I'm not sure but in first post I wrote "Is any differences" , I think it should be "Are any differences". It's detail. :P

    Thanks for your help !

    Re: Two similar sentences about clothes

    "He is wearing a shirt and jeans" is natural. Write "is there any difference..." or "Are there any differences..."
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Be careful with your spelling.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That would be the least common sentence. The other two are both natural and common.
