Parents get their kids confused all the time. It's authentic. :)

I've never heard the word "keks". But I have heard Brits call underwear pants and they call pants trousers or troosers in Scotland. :D


Oh yes, we have a variety slang terms for underwear - grundies, undercrackers, keks, dung hampers, knickers (for girls) but yes pants too. There is a common rule of thumb in the UK - why have one word to describe something when you can have 20?
