"Celana ini sederhana."

Translation:These trousers are simple.

Not really a sensible sentence. Do they mean "These trousers are plain"?


Do they mean "These trousers are plain"?

Yes, something like that, "plain", "modest" , "nothing special".

    I think its really up to how people personally think of 'simple' and 'modest'. Personally I see it as a positive great thing. Plain to me sounds negative tho. We both just interpret the word differently and its down to preference/personality for the context. A little known fact too that political allignments can be detected in how people structure sentences.


    Trousers are not supposed to be clever


    I was thinking that these trousers are simple to sew, easy to assemble -- the sort of comment which might be made by friends over a cup of something.


    trousers or pants should be accepted as it means the same.
