    What is this expression in French? I don't want to say "you look good", I want to be a bit more subtle by saying "you don't look so bad yourself"...

    Thanks...

    Is that the same thing as saying, "Tu est pas mal toi non plus"?

    If I said, "Tu n'est pas mal, toi-meme"...is that wrong?

    Does it not depend on what 'look' stands for here: to look good as in good health, going well, look good as in well dressed, etc..
