Answer: SEERSUCKER (meaning “material” – which I’m not very familiar with). The solution is the seller (ie “trader”) with the LL removed (indicated by “spending £50”) – this is a cheek: L is the Roman numeral for 50, while L is a recognized abbreviation for “pound”, although pounds of weight instead of coin) and after the remainder SUCKER (meaning “gullible person”), eg: SEER-SUCKER. One achieved only through wordplay.

Answer: The elephant in the house, an obvious problem that people don’t want to admit. The clue riffs that “jumbo” is another word for an elephant, and “chamber” is another word for a room. You get the idea. A signal that reads rather well, given its context.

Answer: RUSTY. Solution “15” satisfies – solution 15a is a brown, rust color – and is “out of habit”.

Answer: Sestates, which are “groups” of six. “More than one” indicates the solution is plural. The solution is to put or “absorb” EST (meaning “is in Paris”, ie French for “is”) SETS (meaning “gang”), ie: S(EST)ETS.

Answer: Thrifty (meaning “moderate”). The solution is F (a recognized abbreviation of “fort”, which is “loud” in musical parlance) followed by RU (ie “game”, especially rugby union) and GAL (ie “girl”). The “at the end” bit seems a bit redundant, so I may not have it 100% correct.
