Nearly Headless Nick

Nearly-Headless Nick wearing a doublet and breeches

"Pearly white and semitransparent, Nick was dressed tonight in his usual doublet, but with a particularly large ruff, which served the dual purpose of looking extra-festive, and insuring that his head didn't wobble too much on his partially severed neck."

A doublet is a man's snug-fitting buttoned jacket that is shaped and fitted to the man's body.


Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington wore a doublet.[1] In 1992, he tucked his letter from Sir Patrick Delaney-Podmore about the Headless Hunt into his doublet while talking to Harry Potter.[2]
