All caterers might follow his example
In buying victuals; he was never rash
Whether he bought on credit or paid cash
He used to watch the market most precisely
And got in first, and so he he did quite nicely.
The Manciple is another of Chaucer’s characters who fits into the 21st century with no problem. His life style is reflected in his costume with its terracotta decorated bands around the cuffs and patterned tunic fabric, plus his rather splendid variation on a Tam’o shanter hat. Once more the interest in money is made clear by the important leather pouch he carries so proudly.
