I have to stop myself from translating into; 'I'm wearing shorts'. I know it wouldn't be correct translation, but it would be what I'd say... mind you, I'm not an English speaker. What would; 'I am wearing...' be in Gaidhlig, anyone knows?

It's the same phrase.

Tha (item of clothing) orm.

'I am wearing shorts' will be accepted for this sentence if that's more natural to you :)

I'd like to hear the pronunciation for "I have blue trousers on." That would be "Tha briogais ghorm orm." Right?
