    That kid is cut.

    Jim is showing Mel the video of his highschool days' baseball match, and indicating him on it, he says "That kid is cut" whose tranlsation goes "That boy is exactly me".
    Does "cut" have the meaning of "exactly something/somebody"?

    Jim- My mom saved the video... All 14 hours. Ready for a Jim marathon?
    mel- Is that really you?
    Jim- Come on. Can't you tell? Look at the pecs. That kid is cut.

    Re: That kid is cut.

    I believe it means that his body is well-toned and muscular. "Pecs" are pectoral muscles.

    Re: That kid is cut.

    "Cut" is slang. There's also "ripped". Apparently "cut" and "ripped" mean different things. My guess is one means muscular, and one means low body fat. I don't know which is which, or even if that distinction is entirely true.
