I was born and raised in San Diego, where it doesn’t snow. What I grew up thinking of as “cold,” is really nothing. Because of that I’m a bit at a loss when it comes to winter-related terminology. There are two words I know how to say in Chinese, but am not sure how to say in colloquial English. They are 秋裤 qiu ku and 棉裤 mian ku. “Qiu ku” literally means “autumn pants” and refers to long but relatively thin undergarments to wear when it’s cold. “Mian ku” literally means “cotton pants” and refers to thick/insulated undergarments for when it’s very cold. I know know the words “long underwear” and “thermal underwear,” but I’m not sure how people colloquially refer to these articles of clothing. Do you know?
