I'm pretty sure that you are referring to Dickens’s "A Tale of Two Cities". Mr. Lorry is described as a gentleman of sixty two. He is wearing faded brown clothes that were once quite nice. He seems to be a man of good grooming. He is, "very well kept, with large square cuffs and large flaps to the pockets, passed along his way to his breakfast." Mr. Lorry's posture is that of a proper gentleman. He sits straight with one hand on each knee. Dickens describes him as being a man of business in good standing. He has a "flaxen wig" and collar and cuffs that are, “as white as the tops of the waves that broke upon the neighbouring beach." Dickens notes that Mr. Lorry seems quite at ease in his new surroundings.
