    Where are you off to?

    Suppose, my friend and I were sitting on the chair in the house, tooking off our shirts. Suddenly my friend stood from the chair and wore his shirt to move out. In such a situation, can I ask him, "Where are you off to"?

    Yes, you can. But your previous sentences are meaningless.

    Errors:

    If you look at your first sentence, you are both sitting on one chair [the chair in the house]. You do not need a comma after "Suppose".

    "taking off" - which means you are carrying out the action of removing them.

    "Stood up"

    He may well be wearing his shirt, but he has to put it on again.




    "Suppose my friend and I are sitting on chairs in the house, without our shirts. Suddenly my friend stands up and puts on his shirt, starting to walk out. ...."
