To exchange his side gown for “a fresch jakett, after the new g[u]ise” is to outfit himself for a life of theatrical shape-shifting and crimes against the community (677). This consideration of fashion initiates moral drama’s perennial interest in this theme, from Moros’s ludicrous red feather in The Longer Thou Livest to Fastidious Brisk’s up-to-the-moment suits in Every Man Out of His Humour.
