The wardrobe essentials every man should own
It was on a random Sunday morning I was lying around with John binging FRIENDS on Netflix. I was commenting on one of Racheal’s outstanding outfits when I suddenly noticed that John had a coat just like the one Joey was wearing. I told him and he too agreed that would dress as Joey Tribbiani on my birthday. And that was the moment he uttered the words of absolute stupidity. He said, “I need to buy a black t-shirt, though.” To say I was astonished was the understatement of the century. Like, even that grandpa living in our neighborhood must be owning a plain black t-shirt. To just confirm that my ears were working appropriately, I asked him once again to know if he was really that stupid to not own a simple black t-shirt or shirt. But no, alas! My ears were fine but my boyfriend wasn’t. And I was going to change that. No, not my boyfriend of course. That fact that he did not already own some of the basic must-have wardrobe things by not only men, but everyone.

Hoodies are the universal definition of comfort. Want to go for a stroll in a garden on a chilly evening, pull on a hoodie and step out.
