Newton only tailored material (5)


I believe the answer is:


'material' is the definition.
(nylon is a kind of material)

'newton only tailored' is the wordplay.
'newton' becomes 'N' (synonyms).
'tailored' is an anagram indicator (the letters are customised ).
'only' anagrammed gives 'ylon'.

(Other definitions for nylon that I've seen before include "Hosiery material" , "Plastic used for stockings" , "Artific ial (stocking) material" , "A thermoplastic" , "Artificial fibre" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
