This is a town NPC. You may need a home in order for it to appear.

The Clothier is an NPC vendor who sells only Vanity items (items that do not provide enhancements to your character, and are for aesthetic value only).

The Clothier is the same character as the Old Man who used to guard the Dungeon before Skeletron was defeated. After you defeat Skeletron, you will have freed the Old Man from his curse, wherein he will disappear from the Dungeon entrance. Once a suitable vacant house is available, he will spawn and sell items. His clothes are no longer tattered, his eyes have turned blue, and he is wearing a red hat.

If the Clothier is killed, he will drop the Red Hat, another Vanity item. Since players can not harm NPCs with weapons, only enemies, Dart Traps, Boulders or lava can kill him. Note that lava of sufficient depth may also destroy the Hat, though. As of 1.2, the Clothier also has a voodoo doll, named the Clothier Voodoo Doll, that when equipped allows you to kill him (similar to the Guide Voodoo Doll) and summon Skeletron.

Anomaly: Two of the possible names, Alfred and Edmund, are also possible names for the Merchant.

[edit] Tips

  • Placing a shallow Lava pit in the floor of the Clothier's house (eg. by pouring one Lava Bucket into an 8 or 9-tile long horizontal recession of one tile height) will cause the Clothier to die and respawn often, leaving behind the Red Hat each time, which can be sold for 2 Silver Coin each (or worn).
  • If you have the clothier voodoo doll equipped, making him die either by lava, or by monsters will spawn Skeletron at night
