I have enough clothes, and besides, Kolkata doesn't have a proper winter.”However, she said his definition of enough clothes is 5-6 shirts, two collared T-shirts, 4-5 pants and 2-3 sweaters. “If I buy him things, he makes me return or doesn’t wear. His shirts are washed, ironed and cleaned but old fashioned as he’s not bought anything in recent years,” she said.
