not a man for vernaculars

He gradually lost his American accent completely--something few American expatriates do. In Paris he learned to speak French, fluently and coorectly though not idiomatically--he was not a man for vernaculars except in pastiche.

What does the bold sentence mean? Does it mean that he was always not so fluent like natives???
