Not, in Fact, Related to Tile

As a middle-aged person with teenagers, I occasionally run up against language that Kids These Days are using.  Yesterday, I learned “groutfit” when another mom posted on Facebook that her son came home wearing someone else’s shirt: he was mocked for wearing a groutfit, so he traded shirts with a friend.

A “groutfit” is a gray outfit.

Apparently there is also a “bloutfit,” but this requires disambiguation, because it could be a blue outfit or a black outfit.  Kids These Days.

    So, non-word-related sadness about mocking people’s clothes, but the shirt-exchange response is kinda sweet, honestly. Almost Matthew 5ish—if any man should be mocked for his shirt, give him your cloak also.

    Hee! I’m glad for your title, ’cause I too would’ve assumed tile-relatedness.

    I guess my usual approach these days is a broutfit (brown), except when I’m wearing a blirt with brants.
