Let's say there're three boys, and they all are in an orange shirt. Then, which one is correct?

A. All of them are wearing an orange shirt.

B. All of them are wearing orange shirts.

Of course, each of them is wearing ONE orange shirt, but because all of them are in a orange shirt, there're three orange shirts. So I'm confused.

Here is an example of single v.s. plural:

All of them are wearing orange shirts.

v.s.

Each of them is wearing an orange shirt.

This is because the first sentence refers to multiple shirts (on multiple people) and the second sentence refers to the single shirt worn by each member of a group of people.

    You might want to explain why this is the case, so the OP can better handle these situations in the future. – jimsug Jul 27 '14 at 6:56
