In one window, there is a headless tailor’s dummy proudly sporting a delicate white dress, the sleeves limply hanging. He stops in front of it, the tailor’s dummy motionless like a monument. A squirrelly-faced, curly-haired man stands next to him, chewing an extinguished cigar, their shoulders nearly rubbing. The smell of the man’s body: damp, sweaty, clothy.Aleksandar Hemon, The Lazarus Project.
I'm supposed to translate that (into Spanish), but I don't really understand what "clothy" is supposed to mean there, specially since it seems to be negative. Can anyone explain it?
Thanks in advance.
