- (obsolete) That cannot be fashioned; unshapely, distorted.
- 1593, Shakespeare, William, Richard III, act 1, scene 1:
- I, that am rudely stamp'd, and want love's majesty
To strut before a wanton ambling nymph;
I, that am curtail'd of this fair proportion,
Cheated of feature by dissembling nature,
Deformed, unfinish'd, sent before my time
Into this breathing world, scarce half made up,
And that so lamely and unfashionable
That dogs bark at me as I halt by them ...
- Not fashionable
- 1853, Dickens, Charles, chapter 2, in Bleak House:
- The fashionable intelligence says so for the comfort of the Parisians, and it knows all fashionable things. To know things otherwise were to be unfashionable.
