    in the garb of = dressed as

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am on the right track by the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following excerpt from the George Donald’s “Donal Grand”?

    Donal looked, and saw a man in the garb of a clergyman regarding him from the road, and wiping his face with his sleeve.

    in the garb of = dressed as


    Thank you for your efforts.


    Regards,


    V.
