Okay, the Parley bit is interesting ... but - just how many Parley actions are there in the game so far? Not many, so let's ignore that...

1 cost for 1 health and 1 horror. And it's an Item, so Scavenging might work well with it. Also, it's the first body slot card to offer some level of horror protection, which is interesting too.

On balance, it's probably not as good as Leather Coat, but it's not disappointing for the cost, and I find horror is often more of a problem than health. It's also much cheaper than Bulletproof Vest in terms of XP.

I could imagine using this with a Rex Murphy Scavenging build, or perhaps Jim Culver Scavenging with the right ally cards.

One down-side - this has the creepiest card art in the game. Is that a mannequin? Scary.

In the first two Dunwich scenarios the parley checks are kind-of important, so I tent to put Fine Clothes into deck with the intent to replace it later. — Magnificate · 666
*Minor spoiler ahead:* In certrain scenario's where you encounter nasty treacheries that make you discard assets in play, this little neutral card i great as asset discard fodder. You're gonna cry when that treachery comes up after you just put your lightning gun as only asset into play — Heyenzzz · 1414
As of the release of Path to Carcossa, 8 of the 15 existing scenarios have a parley action on at least one card, and most of those require skill checks and have big payoffs. — Sechen · 47
