Answer: Mufti is of Arabic origin, it’s a legal advisor in Islamic law. In the Music Hall era, people would dress up as Mufti, in traditional garb, which because of the Ottoman empire was a fez with a tassle and a dressing gown. This was then picked up as not being in uniform, which is what it means now in English.
