A caning?

Four gentlemen (Adam, Bill, Chuck, and Dan) went to an expensive restaurant to dine. They checked their coats, hats, gloves, and canes at the door (each of the gentlemen had one of each). But when they checked out, there was a mix up, and each of the men ended up with exactly one article of clothing (a pair of gloves is considered a single article of clothing) belonging to each one of the four. Adam and Bill ended up with their own coats, Chuck ended up with his own hat, and Dan ended up with his own gloves. Adam did not end up with Chuck's cane. State whose coat, hat, gloves, and cane each of the gentlemen ended up with.


  1. Adam:
    Own coat
    Bill's hat
    Chuck's gloves
    Dan's cane

    Own coat
    Dan's hat
    Adam's gloves
    Chuck's cane

    Dan's coat
    Own hat
    Bill's gloves
    Adam's cane

    Chuck's coat
    Adam's hat
    Own gloves
    Bill's cane

  2. Adam: Adam's Coat, Bill's Hat, Chuck's Gloves, Dan's Cane
    Bill: Bill's Coat, Dan's Hat, Adam's Gloves, Chuck's Cane
    Chuck: Dan's Coat, Chuck's Hat, Bill's Gloves, Adam's Cane
    Dan: Chuck's Coat, Adam's Hat, Dan's Gloves, Bill's Cane

    He beat me to it with his logic square mastery!

  3. Gerald and Karnov had it right:

    Adam had his own coat, Bill's hat, Chuck's gloves, and Dan's cane.

    Bill had his own coat, Dan's hat, Adam's gloves, and Chuck's cane.

    Chuck had Dan's coat, his own hat, Bill's gloves, and Adam's cane.

    Dan had Chuck's coat, Adam's hat, his own gloves, and Bill's cane.
