    Figured this was a good compromise

    Cal was dressed in a Hex Hall uniform. The blazer seemed a little tight on his broad shoulders, more so when he shrugged. “It was mine. Mrs. Casnoff brought it with her. I don’t really, uh, do costumes. Figured this was a good compromise.”


    Could you explain me the red sentence?

    Re: Figured this was a good compromise

    It's hard to say much without knowing the context, but it would appear that the person is wearing an old uniform instead of a full costume- hence the compromise. Is it a fancy dress party or something?

    Yes, it's a fancy dress party.
