    all anyhow

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    I must see about his clothes; I can’t have him going up to Oxford all anyhow.

    all anyhow = all so-so/ in one way or another

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V

    Re: all anyhow

    Not a teacher only a native.

    It means the speaker can't see the person go to Oxford dressed in any manner or dirty/casual clothes. Suggesting that they are going somewhere formal, as such they need clothes to match the occasion.
