Top tree was rotten (7)


I believe the answer is:


'top' is the definition.
(type of top or jumper)

'tree was rotten' is the wordplay.
'rotten' indicates an anagram.
'treewas' is an anagram of 'SWEATER'.

(Other definitions for sweater that I've seen before include "Long-sleeved pullover" , "Warm garment" , "Top" , "Re waste: it's a garment" , "mugger once" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
