Many were reserved about Dodd's suitability for the job due to his belief that one should live modestly, while many others insisted on living the more of a better lifestyle, which is what "the pretty good club" refers to. Ambassador Wilson believed more in living better and dressing more stylishly. Their clothes were a source of significant difference for many people, who criticized Dodd's ill-fitting clothes and approved of Wilson's faultless attire.
