When I moved out of my parents’ house, I had no idea how many times I would have to make unexpected trips to the corner shop. Honestly, I reckon on a “lazy weekend” I am in the newsagents about fifteen times. Batteries, light-bulbs, various fruits and juices, toilet roll, yoghurts, emergency paracetamol, pesto, pasta, Diet Cokes, bread, milk. MILK! Fucking hell, so much milk. Where does all the milk go?
But yeah, all that means I end up spending a good deal of time out of the house in what can only be described as “very casual attire” (usually some kind of mixture of pyjama bottoms, football shirt, and a big puffa jacket) and I’m sick of it. Sick of it. I’m sure you can relate: When you’re quickly nipping out the house and looking terrible, that’s when you manage to see everyone you’ve ever worked with, had a crush on, or met. It’s time to nip that in the bud with a class tracksuit: specifically this class tracksuit.
Reebok’s F Franchise tracksuit (top: £55, and bottoms: £45) has plenty of throwback flair with coke-white blocking, navy paneling, and red and white piping. As Oi Polloi calls it in their ever-joyous product description: it is truly a sight for sore eyes. Comfortable and cool, it’s as ready for you to sit around the house playing Mafia III in as it is for a jog to the local Tesco for some smoked salmon and a seeded bagel. It’s even perfect for when you’re invited to one of those Very Instagram parties where everyone’s got a sovereign ring and a gold tooth despite their dad being one of Kensington’s premier art dealers specialising in mid-Edo period woodblock prints.
Keep this baby clean and the shop run is your oyster: doesn’t matter if you bump into your boss or your mum, you’ll look great.
