Model Answer 1:
Saying goes that a man is judged by his clothes. In true sense, clothing is a very special thing to make people feel noticed and Mr. Samuel Robertson, my teacher for English languages dresses very well.

Beauty depends on a good dress. Having a good dress is one of the prerequisites to be count. People mostly ignore the individuals with poor or below standard clothing. So, to maintain the society and get valued, one needs to maintain proper dress code or dress well. Mr. Robertson is my English language instructor in the colleges and I have never seen him dress informally. Even when I went to meet him at his home for some instructions over an essay composition, I find him in formal attires too. Once asked about the formal dress, he replied that he never compromises with his dresses and loves to be formal every time except when he is in sleeping mode.

Mr. Robertson usually wears formal suits. He has several suits and they are of different colours. He wears leather shoes with the shoes. Besides, his colour combination is also adorable. He combines his shirts with the suit colours. For instance, when he is in his black suit, he wears a white formal shirt along with a red tie. When he is wearing a blue suit, he wears a black shirt with a dark coloured tie. Besides, his tie knotting styles are different and he never ties the knot in the same way as he did on his last working day. He back brushes his hair with soft hair gel which makes an outstanding look for him.

Last summer I got admitted in British Council in Paris and met Mr. Samuel Robertson. The British council authority assigned Mr. Robertson, a British national, for us to learn pure British English. So, he accordingly instructs us English. I have developed English very well after attending the course. Mr. Robertson teaches the language spontaneously and as we are all professionals here, he also allows meeting him after the class or invites at his home if anyone fails to meet him after the class. He is active in social networking and all of his students are linked with him either on Twitter or via Facebook.

It is solely my own observation and opinion that the British people love to be formal. They are a formal nation and prefer to maintain the formalities and customs everywhere. Regarding their dress code, they also want to continue the formal tradition and literally they do it. I have seen him even in the hot summer day he is in his black suit which would be uncomfortable for me or anyone else of the class. The sense of being formal everywhere might be deeply graved in their minds. So, they are always formal. But it should not be taken as a negative remark. In the current days, a well-dressed body is also required with a wise brain to bloom.


Sample Answer 2:
I like Mr David Peterson for his smartness and casual attires. He is neat and clean and loves to dress well but keeps a notable distance with the formal attires. Nonetheless, he is attractive and gorgeous with his casual clothing.

Mr Peterson is a professional instructor of the French language. I met him first when I went to learn French at a locally reputed French learning school in Cape Town. In fact, I was planning to learn the language as my family is shifting there. My father is a government employee and has recently been transferred there from Cape Town. So, I went to learn French and met with Mr Peterson.

Mr Peterson is a nice guy with a tall figure. So, when he wears jeans pants and T-shirts, he looks excellent. I have never seen him get attired in formal dresses. He loves to be casual and enjoys flexibility in this case. Nobody has any complaint about his attires so far. Besides, he really looks smart with his casual fashion. Mr Peterson also likes to wear colourful dresses. But white is his preferred colour. Whenever goes to attend any event, he dresses in white T-shirt and blue or dark jeans. It brings a majestic look for him.

As I said before, I had met him at the language club. He was sitting beside me and was observing the reaction of others. In fact, he did not tell us that he was the instructor for whom we were waiting. Suddenly he stood up and started lecturing about the language. We were surprised. Actually, all of us were amazed at his introductory class. He described a large number of aspects of the French language. Besides, he asked us to introduce ourselves and we did so one after another. Later, he described many important aspects of the French language and how it originated. In fact, he shared almost all of his knowledge with us about the language.  

The person dresses well for some reasons, I think. He is a language instructor and needs to move around the class. So, if he is in formal attires, he might be in some problems of movement. Moreover, there are some hassles of formal attires too. You always need to be aware of the dress and cannot do whatever you want. A type of invisible restriction is imposed. So, when you are chained with such restrictions, you cannot provide the best shots in your jobs. Therefore, the dress you are in should be comfortable for you. For all the reasons, I think Mr Peterson dresses casually always. But he looks beautiful with the attires and his colour and fabric selection is outstanding indeed.
