When we talk about clothing, we usually use “clothes.”
- Naoko went shopping for new clothes.
- Paolo always wears nice clothes to the office.
“Wear” as a noun is used in compound nouns like swimwear, sleepwear, training wear, underwear, etc.
We do not use “wear” as a noun by itself.
- “Maria is shopping for new wear” (this is not natural)
- “Maria is shopping for new swimwear” (this is natural)
Do you like shopping for clothes? Have you bought training wear recently?
