  • English expression -

    When you say, " What does he look like?" you are asking for a comparison.

    You could say, "He looks like an oak tree." Oak trees are thick and tall, so that would be a comparison.

    A better way to ask for a description would be to say, "Please describe him."
    Then you can say , "He is heavy and tall."

    You would not say, "He is a thin man." He is obviously a man; so saying "He is thin." would be enough.
