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 ones 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
