Quandary Resolution 348
rapporteur, sartorial, tristful, couture
"My good Friday," remonstrated Crusoe tristfully, "given the extreme scantiness of your breechclout it hardly becomes you to cast aspersions on my own superior attire; and as purported rapporteur to your distant tribe you might have the decency to acknowledge that, as an artless savage, you cannot be expected to recognise neat selvage when you see it; so I would respectfully posit that to inscribe 'I don't like the cut of his jib' - although commendably nautical a construction - does constitute a sadly ill-informed disparagement of the sartorial refinements of my couture."
