Examples from texts

A slim-waisted man of forty-six with an effeminate voice and taste in flowers, cretonnes, and flappers.
Сорокашестилетний мужчина, с тонкой талией и высоким, как у женщины, голосом, он любил цветы, пестрые ситцы и молоденьких девушек.

Bezobiedoff was a small, slight fellow, with a face pitted over with smallpox, freckled, effeminate hands, and a huge flaxen moustache much in need of the comb. He was invariably dirty, shabby, uncouth, and uninteresting.
Безобедов был маленький рябой, худой человечек, с крошечными, покрытыми веснушками ручками и огромными нечесаными рыжими волосами, всегда оборванный, грязный, необразованный и даже плохо занимавшийся.
