Model Answer 1:
For somebody like me, who loves clothes, it’s hard to decide which is my favourite piece of clothing. However, I do have one piece of clothing that I love and is my favourite. Here I would talk about my favourite.
It’s a leather jacket and this beauty in black colour is by Western Leather. This leatherjacket is made of 100 percent genuine lambskin that is velvety soft and lightweight.
Myjacket isn’t new. In fact, it’s quite old. I bought it two years ago from Western Leather’s Store in Ludhiana. lt costed me an arm and a leg. It’s little faded now, but I think it looks nicer that way. I must say it has got better with time.
I wear this jacket at least three times a week in winters and in summers sometimes I carry it with me. The great thing about it is that I can wear it with anything. It looks good with jeans or, but it is also fine with smart clothes.
This dress is my favourite because it has lots of pockets so it’s really convenient to wear around and about because it means sometimes I don’t even need to take a bag with me. I also get lots of compliments from my friends whenever I wear it, which is always a good confidence boost.
Model Answer 2:
Ooh, my favourite item of clothing! I’m not much of a clothes horse to be honest, I’m not very interested in fashion so at first, I thought this topic might be quite hard. However, I’ve thought of one. I’ll tell you what it is, when and why I bought it and why I like it so much.
The item is in itself unremarkable. It is a purple craghoppers’ long-sleeved shirt. It is made of a quick-drying poly cotton blend and the fabric has some stretchy qualities which make it easy to wear. The fabric keeps out the sun, and the design incorporates a couple of pockets, one of which has a zip so you can keep small items securely on your person. It is designed as a travel shirt, and to be honest, was rather expensive compared to clothes I would normally buy.
I bought the shirt online ahead of travelling to South East Asia. It was just coming out of winter in the UK, but I’d be going to a hot climate. I wanted something lightweight and comfortable to take with me. It was the wrong time of year to be browsing shops in England, they were all still full of winter clothes, so I just had to trust the description on the site that this would be a good buy, but I was nervous in case it didn’t fit or wasn’t practical. I shouldn’t have worried.
I LOVE this shirt. It is incredibly comfortable to wear, the colour suits me quite well, and even though it is designed as a travel shirt, it’s actually smart enough to wear for work if you match it with some respectable trousers (or a skirt I suppose, but I never wear skirts!). It washes brilliantly, and if you shake it out and put it on a hanger it dries crease-free within an hour or so. The hidden pocket is handy for carrying emergency cash on your person, and I like to have a hanky with me too – there is a pocket for that as well. Because the shirt is so comfy, and much harder wearing than I expected, I wore it almost all the time on my travels. This means that the shirt is now linked to very many happy memories of places I’ve been, people I’ve met and adventures I’ve had. I wish I’d bought loads of them at the same time. I’ll be heart-broken when it eventually wears out as one day it surely must.
Talking about it has got me thinking – would it really hurt to have another quick look at their travel clothes website once again? You never know, perhaps they’ll have a sale on and it would be a shame to miss out.
Model Answer 3:
I purchase my own clothes most of the time and there are many dresses I really like to wear and out of those the leather jacket that I have is my most favourite. This is a brown coloured stylish jacket that I purchased 2 years ago. I bought it from an expensive brand shop which mainly sells winter dresses.
After I moved to the capital city, I found my old winter dresses to become backdated and I was planning to purchase a new one. The jacket I bought is really a favourite piece of clothing I have in my collection. I bought it mainly because I needed a new cloth for the winter season and this one looked very stylish and seemed like made by good materials. I wandered in several shops and markets and was having a hard time finding a stylish and good looking jacket. All of a sudden this one caught my eyes and after trying it in the trial room, I instantly decided to purchase it.
I wear it only the winter season and this jacket gives me the warmth I need to protect from the chilly and cold weather. I like it very much as it goes with my choice and necessity. Some of my friends appreciated this piece of cloth and they inquired where I purchased it from. I can wear it with both the casual and formal dresses and that gives me a good advantage. Besides fashion, this cloth offers utilitarian values as well. I feel comfortable and protected in this dress and it did not cost me a lot.
I don’t have a huge collection of dresses and I do not purchase dresses that I would not wear. But sometimes I find myself in a dilemma when I purchase a dress and later on find it very ordinary. But this leather jacket was exceptional. I have felt a great joy after I purchased it and still this is the best winter jacket I have. For all those reasons this dress has become my most favourite piece of cloth I own.
