Definition of Presentable

  PRESENTABLE   adjective
Hideously appareled after the manner of the time and place.
  In Boorioboola-Gha a man is presentable on occasions of ceremony if he have his abdomen painted a bright blue and wear a cow's tail; in New York he may, if it please him, omit the paint, but after sunset he must wear two tails made of the wool of a sheep and dyed black.
