Mensagem: 

While I was studying I read on a book: Jean and Paul are both wearing blue jeans.

OKay, I have two questions about it:

 

1- Why is "Both" after "are"? Does it have a rule?

    Could I say " Both Jean and Paul wearing blue jeans. Does it have the same meaning?

 

2- Jeans is plural like shorts, pants, etc. How can I write this sentence using a singular word:

Jean and Paul are both wearing a blue shirt. Is it correct?

 

Thanx - Have a great weekend
