It's from Turkish dolap I guess. I didn't knew there were so many common words in these two languages...

You can say it, but it's a calque, of course. ;)

In Hebrew it’s already a familiar expression. I was wondering about Greek.

the word duds is close to slang, people do not use it much anymore. I have never called my clothes duds.

ρούχα does not equals "duds" in English as Duoling requires. This mistake appeared in my Duolingo for the second time. All the dictiionaries show me "dress" or "clothes". Added after two weeks: "Duds" are mistaken translation and it still appears here.

Τα ρούχα, the clothes, reminds me of the Spanish ropa
