A MAN getting ready for a night out was shocked to notice that every part of his outfit was bought for him by someone else.
Glancing in a mirror, Tom Logan realised he was entirely dressed in gifts accrued from Christmases and birthdays of the past decade and he no longer buys his own clothes.
Father-of-two Logan, 46, said: “First I noticed I was wearing the polo shirt Auntie Val got me for my 40th. That’s shrunk a bit now.
“Then I realised my jeans were ones Mum got me from M&S. Like all my jeans that actually fit. I pulled back the waistband and there was my one good pair of boxers, the ones from Christmas 2015.
“Even my feet were clad in a pair of novelty ‘Day of the week’ socks bought by my young daughters. ‘Tuesday’, if you’re interested.
“I’m sure I used to buy my own clothes. In fact I was really keen on it in my teens and 20s, although thinking back fills me with sickening embarrassment at what I must have looked like.
“Have I somehow turned middle aged and ‘square’? Surely not. Still, all the money I’m saving means I can get more things for the garden.”
