I'm tired of people telling me this.
You should always check before you leave the house

Nah, he doesn't need them. In fact, he doesn't neither need that jacket, and that shirt, and those socks, and those shoes.
I'm guessing you think he doesn't need underwear either.
Risky click of the day...
This is much funnier in British English :)
I wonder if брюки is related to the antiquated English word "breeches" for pants...
Possibly. The Dutch word is actually 'broek' (pronounce: brook). The 'ch' often changes to 'k' (Both in writing in and pronunciation) and vice versa. Dutch and English are very closely related.
I thought about it
Нужны is for plurals, right?
Right, just as in English, брюки is always used in plural, you can't have a single pant or trouser (or брюка).
This is pants as in trousers, yes? Not underwear?
Да, да, да.
This is the same as in dutch
Why is "he needs the pants" not accepted? Would that be "Ему нужны ети брюки"?
That would mean "He needs these pants"
Is there a difference between штаны and брюки?
брюки are the kind of pants you would wear with a jacket for an official event.
штаны are just casual, everyday trousers.
