Definition

A pair of jeans. Called such because jeans look just like pants (Ushoo!) Not to be mistaken for a pair of pants though. Some folks, especially those hailing from Tamil Nadu, tend to pronounce this as 'jeans-fants'. Excellent way to perplex those from North India, who will often mistake it to mean jeans AND pants.

Usage

Ey, check it out my new new jeans-pants and sneakers. Full Sakkath!!!
