So If I just say 'my sleeves are torn off' to you, can you get what I'm saying?Torn off sounds right... and now I'm going to try to imagine what sort of fight you had where both your shirt sleeves were torn off. As long as an arm wasn't torn off, however, I guess you're all right. Ripped off is another thought for both shirts and arms.
I doubt it!Thanks
I got it.
I fell on the stairs so my jeans got ripped off.
Thanks Uncle Bob.I doubt it!
Sleeves being "torn off/ripped off" means they were removed from the shirt entirely. One doesn't usually lose one's trousers completely when falling on the stairs - though they do get torn or ripped!
In other words, you mean "torn/ripped" and not "torn off/ripped off".
(Now you will understand Copyright's surprise at the violence of the fight!)
