Hello.

"A part of a piece of clothing that covers all or part of your arm" is called a sleeve. Then, what do you call "a part of a piece of clothing that covers all or part of your leg"?

    cycloneviv,
    Thanks a lot.

    What about "The pants/trousers have a center crease in both its legs"?
    Do you just say, "The pants/trousers are creased"?

    That sounds a little unnatural. I'd suggest:

    The pants/trousers have a centre/er crease down each leg.


    Do you just say, "The pants/trousers are creased"?
    That would mean that the trousers/pants need to be ironed, not that they have an intentional crease as part of the design.

    I hope that helps. :)

    By the way, you wouldn't use "its" as the possessive when speaking of pants or trousers.

    A pair of pants/trousers = it
    Trousers/pants = they (even though they're a single item of clothing.)
