Talking about Personal Fashion Styles

Two friends, Harry, and William, are planning to go shopping and they are talking about

their personal styles…

William: Hi Harry! What about going to that new shopping centre in town later? I’ve heard

there are some really good clothes shops for men there…

Harry: Yeh, sure! Let’s do that. My fashion sense has definitely changed over the last couple

of years… I used to wear tracksuits everywhere, and now, I’m more into wearing jeans and

hoodies or t-shirts.

William: Well, I’m sure you’ll be able to find some nice new clothes. I got paid today too, so

I want to splash out!

Harry: Lucky you! What kind of clothes are you looking for?

William: I’m looking for some new casual clothes… The most important thing for me is

comfort. If I could, I’d wear shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops every day! Although, because of

my job, I have to wear a suit every day. It’s not comfortable and I feel like it’s not really


Harry: I’m not a fan of wearing a suit either. We’re lucky because we can wear anything we

want to university every day… So, most days, I just throw on jeans and a hoodie - that’s

when I feel most comfortable!

William: I’d love to do that…We have ‘casual Fridays’ in work and we’re allowed to dress

down and wear casual clothes in the office. The atmosphere is so much more relaxed and

laidback on Fridays. So, that’s why I’m looking for some new casual clothes…

Harry: That sounds great! I think people are more productive when they can express

themselves and feel comfortable in what they’re wearing. Every business should have a

‘casual Friday’!

William: I totally agree… Now, let’s go and buy some new clothes!
