# Thread: Can I say :How much are two jeans?

1. ## 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!)
