n
British
a conformist, dull or unstylish male. The phrase, defining, according to the user, 'an Alan Partridge-type male wear-ing classic trousers and a puffa jacket', was in use among students in 2001. The suggestion is that the person in question orders his clothes from a cata-logue rather than exercising originality or individualism in choice/purchasing.
