"He wears a coat."

Translation:On nosi płaszcz.

February 3, 2016



No one says plaszcz


Everybody says płaszcz. But outwear that is clearly "płaszcz" while still very fashionable is not as commonly worn. and when in doubt some people say "kurtka". this woman is wearing "płaszcz" https://static.shwrm.net/images/h/2/h255f7c741b9307_500x643.jpg?1442301761

and there is no other word that is more common to describe it


That's perfectly normal word. Maybe not that common because coats aren't the most popular, but I can't imagine a better word for a coat.
