Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.



  Some individuals believe that groufit wearers only sport groufits, or monochrome gray outfits, because they are “too lazy” to put in the work for a more complex assembly of pieces, or  because they don’t have good style; however, these ignorant ideas contradict what I know to be true for myself. When I choose a groufit, I actively do so for the comfort and often the aesthetic. In my opinion, groufits aren’t sloppy, but rather misunderstood. I wondered if I was alone in this stance, so I sought out avid groufit wearers in the Abington community to get their takes on the matter.

Q: Why do you wear groufits?

A: Because when the weather is gray, I want to match the vibes.

Q: Can you describe your groufit?

A: I am wearing gray Brandy Melville sweats and a gray zip-up sweatshirt.

Q: Have you ever personally been hated on by your groufit?

A: No, but I don’t wear groufits a lot, so this might be why I haven’t experienced any hate.

Q: Do you think groufits deserve the judgment they often receive?

A: Absolutely not. I am comfortable and so cute, so no one should be hating.

Q: Can you describe your groufits?

A: Usually I’ll just put on soft gray sweatpants and a sweatshirt. I feel like they are usually super soft and generally the most comfortable type of outfit.

Q: Why do you love your groufits?

A: I love how I can look in the mirror and look as comfortable as I feel. 

Q: Do you think groufits deserve the hate they often receive?

A: Even though I love how groufits are some of the comfiest clothing, they definitely look somewhat stupid. I think they are also a bit unconventional, so people might judge completely valid groufits because they simply aren’t used to them being worn so casually.

Q: Why do you think you’re a groufit wearer?

A: Most of my sweatshirts happen to be gray, and my sweatpants are, too, so I end up naturally pairing them together. I don’t care though, because I look so cute.

Q: Can you describe your current groufit?

A: I am wearing a gray New Balances, a gray Nike sweatshirt, and a plain dark gray sweatshirt I thrifted.

Q: Have you personally ever received backlash for a groufit you wore?

A: Yes.I walk into a room, and people comment on my outfit like it’s an issue.

Q: How does that make you feel?

A: Bad.

Q: Do you think groufits deserve the hate they get?

A: Absolutely not. I’m comfy and cute. What more could you ask for?

    Interacting with these fellow groufit wearers helped me to realize I wasn’t alone in my admiration of the gray outfit phenomenon. Whether you intend to match the atmosphere on a foggy day, seem “as comfy as you feel,” or simply look cute, a groufit may be just the thing to enhance your wardrobe.
