Hello.
I am not a native of English.

I came across a phase in a sentence,
"---, looking decidedly the worse for wear but yours very sincerely."

The content is about a person recalling himself when he was drunk at a party.The sentence ends at the word "sincerely".

My question is, what does "but yours very sincerely" mean in this sentence?

If you were to write this in a different way, would
"looking decidedly the worse for wear, but still charming."
be appropriate?

Please excuse my poor English.
Thank you in advance.

I'm not sure. Could you give us the context? :D

Drunks are often very 'sincere'- they will tell us how much they like us, etc.;-)
