Set fault out as fastidious (8)


I believe the answer is:


'fastidious' is the definition.

'set fault out' is the wordplay.
'out' is an anagram indicator (out can mean wrong or inaccurate).
'setfault' with letters rearranged gives 'TASTEFUL'.

'as' is the link.

(Other definitions for tasteful that I've seen before include "Let Faust have ability to enjoy good things" , "Free of tawdriness" , "Showing discernment" , "Showing good aesthetic judgement" , "Decorous" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
