English term or phrase: a man at C&A
As in:

He was a man at C&A, but youґll never know it.

C&A is a pan-European clothes manufacturer and distributor (www.c-and-a.com), but this will tell nothing to a Russian reader. So Iґm anxious to know your suggestions as to the the possible connotations implied ( i.e. are the C&A clothes considered chic or motley or what?) so I could translate it in a descriptive way.

Thanks in advance.
