    You're right, pants

    Just curious. can anyone explain why the clue

    Not Right Away? (3)

    would give the answer

    OUT

    I'm baffled.

    Not Right = Left = Gone = Away = Out?

    No idea. I know the O and the T are definitely correct, and it's one of these 'Straight and cryptic' clue things. The straight clue is 'unfashionable' which fits with OUT, but the cryptic I just cannot explain.

    Right, thanks to the power of the mighty Google, and to crosswords being syndicated everywhere.

    I found boo's crossword in an Arab Emirates Newspaper/Magazine from 2009.
    Jumped forward a day to check the answers; and Out is correct.

    I know it's right - just don't know why!

    But thanks for the efforts, all.

    I can see how Setup would be plot, but I'm not feeling the Reinforcement vibe.
