The Case For The Toga

This afternoon, I went to the local supermarket and bought a single bedsheet for £2.90. It’s not for my bed, it’s for me. In fact, I’m wearing it right now… Over the next 500 words, I hope to show you why the toga is the outfit for you.

Why am I wearing a toga right now? The answer is simple. I wanted one… However, I also need it for a university society party. The toga is a dress code, but it can be much more than that.

The toga is simple. It’s light, yet warm. Efficient yet comfortable. Cheap yet Stylish. It requires only 1 piece of material and it will keep your body fresh and clean for the duration of your day.

The Romans were onto something and they knew it! The toga is easy to store, it doesn’t need ironing and it can provide you with the style you always secretly wanted.

If you think the toga is too simple, you are mistaken. There is a lot you can do with a toga. Firstly, the colour of the sheet can be changed. Apart from that, the toga can be worn with many other accessories and pieces of clothing such as socks or underwear.

Now that we have covered the practical side of the toga lets talk about what the toga can do for you…

This could be you!

The toga is an exquisite piece of clothing that looks good on everyone. If you are fat, it can make you look skinny. If you skinny, it can make you look fat. If you are stupid, it can make you seem intelligent. If you are sane it can make you look insane. If you are warm, it can make you cold. The powers of the toga are unlimited. You name it, the toga will provide for us all.

Apart from the single setback of no pockets, the toga remains a flawless piece of attire. Ideal for any situation and environment. Be it scorching sun or freezing blizzard, the toga can protect at least 3/4 of your body with a thin layer of material.

What more could you want?!

Cesar wore a toga and he got to lead an empire… Think about it…

Other Roman emperors also wore togas and they got to lead the empire also…

Is anyone seeing a pattern here?

Wear the toga and watch all your problems disappear.

Wear the toga and don’t let the toga wear you!

  1. As you have discovered the pleasures of a toga, might I introduce you to a kilt? From the land of Scotland, this clothing allows you greater mobility (of a sort) and is as comfortable as a toga. Another benefit is very well said by Archie in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire which is ‘ a healthy breeze around the privates’.

    • I myself inhabit the strange lands of Scotland and I do like the occasional kilt. Especially when worn “true scot” 😀

      I always see it as an ideal sports wear as it provides more ventilation than sweatpants or shorts. Sadly this trend hasn’t caught on yet… maybe one day tartan with a vest and hoodie will be a perfectly acceptable outfit in a gym.
