Unfortunate cut in garment (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

tunic

'garment' is the definition.
(tunic is a kind of garment)

'unfortunate cut in' is the wordplay.
'unfortunate' is an anagram indicator.
'cut'+'in'='cutin'
'cutin' with letters rearranged gives 'TUNIC'.

(Other definitions for tunic that I've seen before include "School garment", "Cut in (anag)", "Close-fitting jacket that's part of a uniform", "top", "Close fitting jacket as part of uniform".)

I've seen this clue in Mirror.
