Re: As a northerner

As a 55 year old northerner living at 55oN, further north than the most southern part of Scotland, "trousers" and "pants" are freely interchangeable terms and the stuff you wear underneath are, naturally "underpants", also know as "undies" when talking to southerners or kegs/kecks in normal parlance. Sometimes kegs are called "skids" or "skiddies" but that's really a southern expression used in southern towns like Manchester or Liverpool and probably refers to their normal state rather than any clever rhyming slang thing.
