  1. clothes, dress, clothing especially of European style
    arere bilong klos = the hem of a dress
    klos bilong slip = pyjamas
    klos misa = a cassock, an alb, a vestment
    lusim klos = to take off one’s clothes, to undress
    ol i no gat klos olgeta = They are naked. They have no clothing.
    Generally a boy does not speak of his klos even if he has a shirt and trousers. On the other hand if a girl says, ‘mi no gat klos,’ it does not mean she is naked; she means she has no dress .... but only a grass skirt.

    pasim klos = to put on clothes, to dress
