Clothes and the choice of one’s outfit is entirely a matter of choice and I believe nobody should be judged on the basis of one’s choice of dressing. However, talking about a person that I believe is quite abstruse as per my dressing sense is my friend’s brother. Although I have never said anything about his choice to anybody, I feel what he wears is quite eccentric.
My friend and I are very close to each other and share a great bond. We have good family terms as well. Therefore, I have known his brother for a very long time. He didn’t dress this way back when he was a kid. However, after he went to a boarding school, his personality changed, including his choice of attire.
He generally wears very gawky colours and, of late, has started wearing clothes that reflect a lot of light. This not only makes him quite off-stream, but it also makes him look quite hilarious. A lot of times, he gets mocked owing to his dresses. To top it off, he chooses some skin-tight, rugged pants that seem very weird. Apart from that, he is generally found wearing his balloon pants with some obscure colours.
Generally, people do not wear such clothes in day to day life. Nevertheless, he never misses a chance to catch everyone’s attention through his absurd way of clothing. Moreover, there are situations when one is expected to wear sober clothes, such as in religious assemblies, yet, he doesn’t change to normal ones even then. All this makes him stand apart from others in a strange way and make the situation awkward.
