    Hi

    He looks well today.
    He looks good today.

    Are both sentences correct?

    Not a teacher,
    For me, only the later is correct.

    Both are fine depending on the context; 'He looks well.' = 'He looks in good health.' 'He looks good.' = 'He looks smart, good looking, well dressed.'
