Also worth bearing in mind: 'pants' means 'underwear' to Commonwealth English speakers (but is still plural). We exclusively use the word 'trousers' for the visible full-leg article of clothing.

Another note to US-English speakers: *please* avoid use of the word 'fanny' to anyone outside North America!
