Exercise 3

MY CLOTHES by Pete Hobbs

1   I don’t have to worry about my work clothes. I’m a police officer and I have a uniform. I like the uniform. We wear a dark blue jacket, dark blue trousers and a white shirt. We also have big yellow police jackets to wear when we’re outside in the street. These jackets are very useful because people can see that we are police officers.

2   I’m not very interested in fashion. My wife, Jane, says that my clothes are boring but most of my friends’ clothes are the same as mine! When I’m not at work I like to wear comfortable clothes, for example jeans and a T-shirt or a jumper. I don’t really have a favourite colour, but I try not to wear dark blue because it’s the colour of my uniform. My favourite item of clothing is my old brown jacket.

3   I don’t have many expensive clothes, but sometimes I go to special events, for example, when friends get married, and I need to wear something nice. I have a suit by the designer Tom Ford. It has dark grey trousers and a matching jacket. I usually wear this with a white shirt and tie.

4   I usually go shopping with Jane. We both like to go to the shopping mall in the centre of town. It has lots of shops and it’s easy to find things. My favourite shop there is Marks and Spencer. Marks and Spencer’s clothes are usually comfortable and they aren’t very expensive. I buy all my clothes there but Jane’s favourite shops are Next and Debenhams.

A. Read the article and match a—d to paragraphs 1—4.

 What I wear when I’m not at work

b   Where I buy my clothes

 What I wear for special occasions

d   My work clothes

B. Read the article again. Are the sentences true or false?

 Pete’s uniform is blue.

 His favourite colour is brown.

•   What are their favourite colours?

•   Where do they buy their clothes?
