How do you say in Latin "I have black jeans"? "Bracas linteas caeruleas atras habeo"? Oh my! --Neander 14:54, 27 Augusti 2010 (UTC)

Heh. The author is probably taking "bluejeans" to be an inseparable word and starting from that to produce bracae caeruleae, but where the linen comes from is a mystery, since bluejeans are usually made from denim (de Nîmes), which in turn is usually made from cotton. A puzzlement! IacobusAmor 15:23, 27 Augusti 2010 (UTC)
