Hi,
Can anyone help me what means (economically) here?
" eventually,he came in,bareheaded wearing a sweater,a tall man,economically intimidatingly lean."
Does it mean very thin?
thanks

    I would say it means the guy is thin, though it does not seem a particularly good way of saying it, to me!

    Lean also suggests a muscularity which might be intimidating, but how that is economical is not obvious.
