Drops Red Hat

The Clothier is an NPC who sells Vanity Items to the player. One of the things he says when you talk to him is "Thanks again for freeing me from my curse. Felt like something jumped up and bit me." This confirms that he is the Old Man from the dungeon. He will come to town after Skeletron is defeated, and only if there is an empty Home. He drops the Red Hat upon death, and this is the only way to obtain it.

After update PC 1.2 if he is killed at Night while the player has a Clothier Voodoo Doll equipped, Skeletron will be summoned. Also as of 1.2 he no longer sells Black Dye. This is now crafted at a Dye Vat from Black Ink.

There is a bug in multiplayer when you use the Teleporter without standing on it. It causes the clothier to teleport and not take damage from mobs. Although he almost immediately teleports back to his house.

Life is like a box of clothes, you never know what you're gonna wear!" (reference to Forrest Gump)

  • "T'were I younger, I would ask (Nurse's name) out. I used to be quite the lady killer." (Nurse must be present, reference to Lady Killers)
  • "Mama always said I would make a great tailor." (reference to Forrest Gump)
  • "Being cursed was lonely, so I once made a friend out of leather. I named him Wilson." (reference to Cast Away)
  • "Thanks again for freeing me from my curse. Felt like something jumped up and bit me." (reference to Forrest Gump)
  • "(Player name) ... we have a problem! Its a Blood Moon out there!" (Only during The Blood Moon, reference to Apollo 13)
  • "I keep having vague memories of tying up a woman and throwing her in a dungeon." (Explains why the mechanic is found in the dungeon, as the clothier was at one point possessed by Skeletron.)
  • "Of course embroidery is hard! If it wasn't hard, no one would do it! That's what makes it great." (reference to A League of Their Own)
  • "I know everything there is to know about the clotherin' business." (reference to Forrest Gump)
  • "That Red Hat of yours looks familiar..." (only if you are wearing the Red Hat)
  • "The sun is high but my prices are not."
  • "I'll give you a discount on your wears if you can convince (name of Truffle) to come over for a...sizing." (The Truffle mentions that he once found the clothier nibbling on his foot.)}}


Trivia

  • The quote: "Life's like a box of clothes, you never know what you're gonna wear!" is a reference to Forrest Gump.
  • The section of the quote: "Felt like something jumped up and bit me" is also from Forrest Gump. It is also possibly a reference to how Skeletron spawns on the Old Man when you select Curse, killing him.
  • If you talk to him before freeing the mechanic from the dungeon, he might say "I keep having vague memories of tying up a woman and throwing her in a dungeon", implying he is the one that captured her.
  • If talked to while wearing his Red Hat, he only says "That Red Hat of yours looks familiar..." and occasionally "t'were I were younger, I would ask (Nurse's name) out. I used to be quite the lady killer." During blood moons, he still says "(player name)...we have a problem! It's a blood moon out there!"
  • Before the 1.0.5 patch, the Clothier sold the Plumber's Shirt and Plumber's Pants rather than the Familiar Clothes.
  • If you look at his face after he dies, you will notice that his eyes turn red.
  • As the "Old Man" NPC, he has red eyes, but as the Clothier, he has blue eyes. This is likely a result of him being freed from his curse.
  • It is possible to have both your Merchant and Clothier named Alfred, but this is very uncommon.
  • If you look closely, The Clothier is the tallest of all NPCs.
  • Many of the Clothier's quotes seem to be references to Tom Hank's movies, e.g. Forrest Gump, A League of Their Own, Castaway, and The Ladykillers.
