Here is my best explanation:

'remove' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'fellows attending party' is the subsidiary indication.
'fellows' becomes 'ff'.
'attending' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'party' becomes 'do' (do is a kind of party).
'ff' after 'do' is 'doff'.
