Her gloves, as Razumihin noticed, were not merely shabby but had holes in them, and yet this evident poverty gave the two ladies an air of special dignity, which is always found in people who know how to wear poor clothes.
Перчатки на ней были не только заношенные, но даже изодранные, что заметил Разумихин, а между тем эта явная бедность костюма даже придавала обеим дамам вид какого-то особенного достоинства, что всегда бывает с теми, кто умеет носить бедное платье.

Aching, fighting the ache, she struggled up, wrapped about her a shabby cloak which one of the maids had abandoned in flight, and in the darkness staggered out to find help.
С болью — преодолевая боль — она поднялась на ноги, завернулась в ветхое пальтецо, забытое в бегстве одною из служанок, и, шатаясь, в темноте вышла из дому искать помощи.

Children played in the yards, on the pathways, and in the roads, as shabby and wild as mountain sheep.
Во дворах, переулках и на улице играли дети, оборванные и дикие, как горные бараны.

He was wearing a brownish reefer jacket, rather shabby, evidently made by a good tailor though, and of a fashion at least three years old, that had been discarded by smart and well-to-do people for the last two years.
Одет он был в какой-то коричневый пиджак, очевидно от лучшего портного, но уже поношенный, сшитый примерно еще третьего года и совершенно уже вышедший из моды, так что из светских достаточных людей таких уже два года никто не носил.

He looked up, it was the head clerk Zametov, looking just the same, with the rings on his fingers and the watch-chain, with the curly, black hair, parted and pomaded, with the smart waistcoat, rather shabby coat and doubtful linen.
Он заглянул -- Заметов, тот же самый Заметов и в том же виде, с перстнями, с цепочками, с пробором в черных вьющихся и напомаженных волосах, в щегольском жилете и в несколько потертом сюртуке и несвежем белье.

His hair, which had turned quite grey, hung down in disorder under his crushed hat, and lay in long straggling tails on the collar of his shabby old great-coat.
Волосы, совсем поседевшие, в беспорядке выбивались из-под скомканной шляпы и длинными космами лежали на воротнике его старого, изношенного пальто.

I looked up before me stood a man who had been drinking and was almost staggering, dressed fairly neatly, though he had a shabby over- coat and a greasy cap.
Гляжу - передо мной стоит хмельной человек, чуть не покачиваясь, одетый довольно чисто, но в скверной шинели и в засаленном картузе.

She looked disbelievingly at him: his broken neck supported by some homemade contraption of wood and bandages, his shabby clothes.
Она поглядела на него с недоверием: его сломанная шея, которую поддерживала самодельная конструкция из деревяшек и бинтов, его потертая одежда...
