Shopping can be an adventure.

Don’t make the mistake of entering a department store asking the sales associate if you can try on some pants.

She’ll give you a queer look and walk you to the underwear section of the men’s department.

Pants, in BrE, is exactly that.

Men’s underwear.

You could take some pants into the fitting room just to mess with the sales person, but that could potentially earn you a place on the UK tourist black list.

After clarifying what it is you want to try on by pointing to the ones you’re wearing, the sales person will ask if you mean “trousers.”
