Cuz I --just got, gotta know...

Why do we refer to "a pair of pants," "a pair of trousers," "a pair of briefs" etc. When THERE'S ONLY ONE of wotever it is?

I especially wonder about the briefs, because they are legless, so you can't even argue that well, they Do have two legs. The only way "pair" would fit is if we called 'em "a pair of holes."

Well?
