    off the peg

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to help to me to interpret the phrase in bold in the following sentences?

    He looked at Nigel’s suit admiringly. “I bet that never come off the peg.”

    off the peg = ready-to-wear clothes

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regard,

    V
