Attire of doctor in conflict with honour (8)
I believe the answer is:
'attire' is the definition.
(both can mean someone's clothing)
'doctor in conflict with honour' is the wordplay.
'doctor' becomes 'Dr' (abbreviation).
'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'conflict' becomes 'war' (war is a kind of conflict).
'with honour' becomes 'obe' (Order of the British Empire award. I am not sure about the 'with' bit.).
'dr' inserted inside 'warobe' is 'WARDROBE'.
'of' acts as a link.
(Other definitions for wardrobe that I've seen before include "Stock of clothes", "A theatre company's stock of costumes", "Tall furniture for storage of clothes", "One's range of clothes", "store here".)
