To have something on


Senior Member
Hello . As far as I'm concerned you cannot use the progressive form of "have " when you say somebody owns something. But you can use "having " as to eating or having shower. What about clothes .? Can I say - I am having my best jeans on ?

    "I have my best jeans on "is better. "to have on" meaning "to wear" can't (as far as I know) be used in the continuous (or 'progressive') form. Sometimes, unfortunately, all we can say is "That's the way we say it in (any language)."
