See I can correct spelling as well.
There is no vanity in the Joker. His looks is merely eccentric, theatrical, and flamboyant.
He's not combin his hair, tucking in his shirts, wearing fadoras, dressing like a mobster.
Afterall the Joker is highlighting the differences between himself an typical Gotham criminals from their underworld.
Nice try, though.
He's also not wearing torn or tattered loose-fitting shirts or pants, plaid flannels......
Again...more 'mod' than 'grunge', if you will...or maybe a combination thereof from clothes to face, respectively. 'Modge'....or 'Grud'....
