Isn't the meaning "Clothes OF ONE PERSON, considered as a group."? At least in French "habillement" accepts the plural if there are several people and, if it stays at the singular, it means that they are identically or similarly clothed. Example from http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/habillement : "Revêtons-nous d’habillements Conformes à l’horrible fête" (Racine), "Les habillements étaient fort élégants du temps de Henri IV.", but "L’habillement des Égyptiens était fort simple.": here all Egyptians are supposed to have been clothed about the same. It is also the case for ancient Greek ἐσθής, as noted by LSJ: http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/morph?l=ἐσθής&la=greek#lexicon" : "in pl., of the clothes of several persons, A.Th.872 (anap.)", the example given being Aeschylus, "Seven Against Thebes": 870 "ἰώ, υσαδελφόταται πασῶν ὁπόσαι στρόφον ἐσθῆσιν περιβάλλονται,". --Fiable.biz (talk) 04:44, 9 April 2015 (CEST)
