Here is my best explanation:

'habit' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'copper with most unusual' is the subsidiary indication.

'copper' becomes 'cu' ('Cu' can be a synonym of 'copper').

'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'unusual' indicates an anagram.

'most' anagrammed gives 'stom'.

'cu'+'stom'='custom'
