With It


With it

Today’s English idiom is with it. If you are with it, you are one of two things. You are either:

1.
fashionable, i.e. in style
If someone says that you are with it, he is saying that you are stylish and up-to-date.
Examples:
Mark thinks that he is with it, but most of his clothes are 20 years old.
I don’t think that Frieda needs to update her wardrobe. If anyone is
with it, she is.

or

2.
thinking clearly, i.e. mentally present
If you are awake, alert and able to think clearly, you are with it.

Examples:
I am sorry I didn’t answer you question. I am just not with it this morning.
I spoke to Louise, but the empty look in her eyes told me that she was not
with it.

So what do you think? Does the man in the picture above look
with it or not?
