    "What's the meaning of the phrase?"

    Dear All,

    What's the meaning of the phrase?
    "The police caught the man in brown before he got away."

    What's the meaning of "in brown"?
    Does it indicate the color of that man's clothes or just a wrong typing?

    Thanks a lot for your kind assistance.

    Best Regards,
    Cicily from Taiwan

    To me, the man in brown means, the man wearing brown.

    All the best, :D
