catalogue man

Definition

Slang

  • noun a conformist, dull or unstylish male. The phrase, defining, according to the user, ‘an Alan Partridge-type male wearing 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 catalogue rather than exercising originality or individualism in choice/purchasing.
