Sharp Dresser Anecdote

Wayne Sparkman recounted an anecdote about Machen from Cornelius Van Til.
“Machen was known for being a sharp dresser and having a consistent stylish look Well, after he died they found 20 or 30 exact copies of the same suit in his closet!
It’s little things like that that add humanity to the man. It’s not just facts on a page, but a reality of who they were as a person.”
Apparently there is a Brooks Brothers receipt for a suit somewhere in the archive.
