Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Adjective Phrase 34. The adjective phrase today is
clean cut. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. Someone who is clean cut is
very neat in appearance and is usually well-behaved. Okay.
It is mostly used about men. Yeah. I never really hear anybody say a clean-cut woman.
It's mostly used about men, especially a clean shaven man who also have good
manners and it sort of implies good morals. It's not really in the definition
when you look at the definition. It doesn't have that, but just like remember some
words have what we call connotations. They have other feelings that are
connected to them and I think this word of clean cut has sort of those that has that
meaning attached to it as well. Okay. Let's continue here. The idea alludes to
to be clean. You need to cut away anything dirty or messy and perhaps
indirectly or by extension anything immoral or improper. Okay. Let's continue.
Let's give three examples here that kind of cover this. When Brian Epstein became
the manager of the Beatles, the old group, The Beatles he made sure they had short
haircuts and dressed in suits while performing to give them a more
conservative clean-cut image. Yeah. He was the one that was actually going to bring
them out. Remember this was back in the very , very early 1960s and you know I
think the Beatles were he from performing before that like in bars in
Germany and stuff. And you know he tried to clean them up, so that they would be
more presentable to the public. So that they could reach big-time. So that's what
he did. Remember and you know, the entire world was more conservative back at that
time in the late 50s early 1960s. So he wanted to give them a clean-cut image , so
that they would be they would be thought of as more proper
or more suitable. You know, to spread to the mass audience. Okay. Let's look at
number two here. She is not attracted to men with beards, ponytails, tattoos etc.
All right. She prefers a man to have a more clean-cut look. All right. Yeah. You know,
different women like different things. Just like different men like different
things too. And there are some women out there ... Some women like men with ponytails.
Some men women like men with beards. Some, some like the more clean-cut look. It's
just the way things are. All right. And number three here. That company requires
all its managers to have a clean-cut appearance. Yes. No facial hair. No
ponytails or unusual piercings like you know they probably don't want nose
piercings. Or a lip piercing or even a neck or something like that. They don't
want that. If it's a woman manager I'm sure she could have earrings and even
then if they allowed earrings at all they'd probably still want them to be
very small and very short while they're at work. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I
hope it was clear. I hope it was informative. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
