Boys go shopping
While girls may have to shop at a whole lot of places to find even one good pair of earrings, we boys have it easy. For us, short colourful tees with quirky messages, canvas shoes and a comfortable pair of jeans is good enough.
Investing in a good pair of sunglasses is a good idea. Putting in money on a good brand is worth it as it will last long and never go out of style.
For boys, the good shopping spots are Nehru Place and Gaffar Market — which offer a number of options.
You might want to walk down the streets and pick up interesting stuff that you come across. There is, in fact, a range of interesting accessories from wristwatches to shoes to choose from.
