Cut to the bone???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have read this a couple times around here and elsewhere. It seems to be a Dutch saying. Can somebody explain what it means?

Thanks.

i think it means something similar to dont beat around the bush, or cut to the chase, or a term describing what a straightshooter would do.

It's a bit too butcher-esque for my taste. I think of marrow when this is mentioned.

In short... it is B.S!
A marketing catchphrase developed by the clothing chain Oger to describe their so called "Italian look" (in their imaginations). Slim slim slim suits (i.e too tight), and pants that only reach to above your ankle....

As I said.. pure B.S but it is selling well to the silly.

Sorry if I hurt your feelings by mentioning the term in my first post...

Anyway; doesn't matter who developed it but it's a clear term to many overhere in Holland; meaning very slim indeed.
