Such a beautiful word. Even sounds good in its germanified version (“soigniert”). Interestingly, in German, this words tends to be only used in reference to a male. “Ein soignierter Herr”. Is it the same in English or women also soigné?

At least in the U.S., women are also soigné(e); in fact, I’ve read it used more about women than about men. However, I think of it as a word used more often in the 1950s-70s than now.

Interesting! And nice to know that it is an equal opportunities word in English. German is old school – sexist…

Hmm… good question Guylty. I think one would choose a different word for a woman.
RA soigné is even more irresistible than usual.

Definitely is a very elegant man in a tux and wears a suit well. With his height and build most of his clothes look classy on him. Just adore a man with class.

Réellement une façon de se vêtir très soignée!
Il est habillé de pied en cape de manière irrésistible. Précisément, avoir enfilé un costume (de maître-tailleur, pas de prêt-à-porter), doté d’un noeud papillon, lui confère une qualité de présence, qui ne peut être reconnue qu’ à l’unanimité.
Tout réside dans le tissus dirait Thorton: “Un bon costume entoilé, au delà de sa solidité et donc de sa rentabilité à long terme, tombera toujours mieux qu’un costume bon marché thermocollé”.
L’ âme de l’élégance réside désormais dans la simplicité, à l’ inverse des excès que confèrent l’ajoût d’ éléments pléthoriques, indésirables, surnuméraires.
C’était juste un exercice d’écriture pour tenter de placer un maximum d’ accents aigu, grave, circonflexe … â,ê,é,è,à, qui disparaissent de la langue française moderne.
