1 JULY 2002
Paris is playing host to the spring/summer 2003 menswear collections at the moment, with 40
shows programmed over four days drawing top international designers. Looks offered so far range
from a matador-inspired collection by Gaultier to a far less restrictive line of sportwear from Louis

This year, designers have chosen the most striking venues in Paris to stage their latest collections.
Belgian designer Dries Van Noten presented his show on a small island on the Seine to give his
collection, which included cotton and linen trousers cut above the ankle, a Caribbean-like
atmosphere. Kenzo´s men´s designer, Dane Roy Krejberg, chose a wing of the Louvre as the stage
for his collection. As electronic music blasted out of the speakers, models stepped onto the catwalk
from a hidden staircase.

The bad boy of Paris, Jean-Paul Gaultier presented his latest spectacle on Saturday. Continuing to
explore Latin influences, his latest muse is the macho world of bullfighting. His latest collection
consists of tight bullfighting trousers and red scarves tied around models’ shoulders and waists.

Moreover, Jean-Paul continues to show his interest in pop culture as he did years ago with Madonna
and her infamous, pointy bras. This year he has chosen another pop icon - Marilyn Manson. Models
with straight, long black hair paced up and down the catwalk, sporting black skirts over black

Louis Vuitton presented a relaxed sporty collection which include baggy, multi-coloured trousers,
cotton tank tops done in pastel hues, and windbreakers just in case the summer turns sour.

2. You ‘re a tailor. A customer has ordered a winter coat. At the first fitting he/ she asks you to
change a lot of things. You’re willing to do the first three of the suggestions, but not all of them.
Persuade your customer that pockets is not in fashion, and a wide belt and a big collar wouldn’t suit
him/ her.
     You’re having a winter coat made at the tailor’s. At the first fitting you find that:
        a. the sleeves are too long
        b. it’s too loose at the waist
        c. the bust/ chest is too tight
        d. the collar is too small
        e. the belt is too narrow
        f. there are no pockets on the coat.
        Politely ask your tailor to change the things you don’t like. Try to persuade him and
        especially insist on having pockets.
Use the following expressions:
A: I would prefer/ rather, I don’t think I would like that, I think you are right, I think I’d like, that’s
a good idea.
B: how about…, What about…, Why don’t you …, I think you should …, I think you ought to …,
If I were you I’d …, Perhaps you should …., : Don’t you think......, Actually ........,You see..........,
You know........

2. There are three brothers, all of them Scotsmen. One of them leaves for America and doesn't even
write one letter for 30 years. Then out of the blue he writes a letter saying that he is arriving the
following week.
     His two brothers meet him at the station. The newcomer is surprised to see that his two
     brothers have beards reaching to their knees.
       "What does this mean? Why have you got such long beards?" he asks. One of them answers
