Describe a piece of expensive clothing which you have bought lately.

You should say:

  • what type of clothing you bought
  • how much it cost you
  • why you bought it

and explain how you felt after you bought it.

[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]


Model Answer 1:

I have never really been in favour of buying expensive clothing primarily because they tend to look worn out and old rather quickly most of the times, no matter how expensive they really are. But the other day, about a couple of month ago, I did buy an expensive winter coat because my grandfather offered me the money as “gift” and wanted me to buy something really “classy”.

Until these recent years, winter in my country wasn’t really very cold, and so I didn’t really need to buy any heavy winter clothes. But, lately, winters are becoming rather cold. On top of that, I also found out that most of my winter clothes were either worn out or looked rather “faded” for wearing. So, when the offer to buy a good winter cloth came, I took up on the offer and decided to buy an expensive winter coat.

The coat cost me an equivalent of almost US $300 which was quite expensive by the standard of my country. Anyway, the coat was really nice and fitted me really well. It was made of pure and top quality leather, and it was water-proofed. The waist-length winter coat was also of a nice and mild brown colour. However, I think that the best feature of that winter coat was that it was not really heavy even though it was made of pure leather.

After buying that winter coat, initially, I felt that I shouldn’t have spent so much money on buying that coat because up until that point I had never really bought such an expensive cloth. But, later on, I convinced myself that the money was well-spent primarily because it was indeed a good product and that I would be able to wear the coat for a long period of time. Besides, it indeed made me feel really comfortable as I wasn’t exactly struggling to cope with the harsh winter anymore. Finally, I thanked my grandfather for buying me such “classy” winter coat as it looked really good on me.


Model Answer 2:

I have recently bought a trench coat known as Maison Margiela form a branded shop in Berlin, Germany. This is a gorgeous coat and comes in the latest fashion and style. The coat has some special features and fastening capacities. I would like to thank you for this nice cue card topic and would further describe why I have purchased it, how much it has cost me and my feelings regarding my purchase of this coat.
I bought the coat from Harvey Nichols – a renowned clothing brand across the country. It took 1000 euros – a bit expensive for a student like me but I could not resist owning the coat because of its amazing look and feel. I have planned that I would adjust a few other costs a couple of months from now on to cover the extra expense.
I bought the trench coat considering the comfort it offers and the cold weather during the winter. It is fashionable and the special cuts on the coat body are very attractive. The coat comes with stone cut double-breasted buttons on the front side. The belt that I use to fasten it is detachable. The fabric is made of pure cotton and it comes with the dry cleaning facility.
After purchasing the coat, I had a mixture of feelings. First of all, I felt a deep sense of satisfaction to have the coat. But when I considered the price, it appeared that I spent exorbitantly. I have spent almost all the pocket money on the coat. However, I am happy to have a dazzling trench coat like this one.
initially – शुरू में
detachable – अलग किए जाने योग्य
exorbitantly – बेहद
