Wurd O' Tha Week - Breeks

This weeks, wurd o' tha week is BREEKS
Breeks is the Scots / Ulster-Scots word for trousers (or pants if you're american)

Outside Scotland and parts of Ulster the term breeks is often used to refer to breeches, a trouser similar to plus fours.

I would encourage you all to use the word breeks instead of the word trousers it's sounds so much more colourful.
