Quote:
He is described as a handsome, arrogant,anti-social intellectual who sometimes offended his fellow-Marxists because of his flare for elegant clothes

Did the writer want to write 'flair' instead of flare?

Flair(n):
1. a natural talent, aptitude, or ability; bent; knack:
a flair for rhyming.
2. smartness of style, manner, etc.:
Their window display has absolutely no flair at all.
Synonyms: chic, dash, panache, verve; oomph, pizazz.
3. keen, intuitive perception or discernment:
We want a casting director with a real flair for finding dramatic talent.

I think I answered it myself, because flare is a blaze of burst, so that doesn't make any sense...
