I like mine too, but I also like the freedom of movement the kilt gives me.
I don't need a dress my wardobe is alteady full of them. Please buy me shoes and make me pretty
Are shoes always plural in esperanto like trousers/pants are in english (but not in esperanto)
No, because it is possible to have a single shoe or a pair of shoes. Pants/trousers are different because they are technically one item, so Esperanto treats them as such.
Ah, I was thinking of dress shoes. I put "he needs shoes, but not dress." Can one also use this sentence for dress shoes?
