Darl didn't get his trademark "Leafs" shirt right away. When he first arrived in the Rock, he went naked like other Fraggles. Unlike other Fraggles, he was self-conscious about it until Kiki found him this worn wrap.

I'm personally reminded of a few older pieces with Kjola in poncho-style drapery. I always thought it was a better, freer look, on the whole, than the traditional close-fitting quasi-metallic outfit. Ditto here over the jersey, I think. Also interesting to see a shading technique outside (or rather in addition to) the ink stroke crosshatching.
I might be using the wrong precise term, then. I mean the characteristic parallel shading done with a ballpoint, I suppose, rather anything done with perpendicular lines. If there's an actual concise name for that.
A bit of similarity with your Fleur the skunk pic from a few years ago. Darl looks shy. Not vulnerable, or pitiable. I guess his adaption to Fraggledom is starting from the shoulders down. I'm sure he'll figure how to tie it around his wait eventually.
