In English, we might say to say Andi buys a shirt and jacket, leaving out the extra "a".

Yes, but it is graded as fail.

Can't this be plural? Andi buys shirts and jackets? Or a combination. Andi buys shirts and a jacket. Andi buys a shirt and jackets.

Andi buying a shirt and a jacket ... What's wrong with that?

Technically nothing. That would be used in the description of a video or an image. But that's not what you'd say in conversation or write. It'd need to be Andi "is" buying a shirt and a jacket.
