Student or Learner
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.
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.
