Definition
not seeming believable
  • And indeed new costumes arrived now: ladies in men's clothes, their ample curves making them look as implausible as characters in an operetta, an effect accentuated by black beards drawn on their faces with burnt cork; and vice versa, gentlemen attired in women's clothes, tripping over their skirts—including Rasmussen the student, who wore a black, jet-trimmed gown, its decolletage revealing a pimply chest and ditto back, both of which he tried to cool with a paper fan.
