    a drink less well suited

    Ushikawa was in the cafeteria by the front lobby, drinking a café au lait as he waited for Tengo. Tengo could not imagine a drink less well suited to Ushikawa, whose strange exterior looked all the stranger amid the energetic, young students.

    Is it possible to leave out 'well' without drastically changing the meaning?

    Thanks.
