Hi,

The adverb 'that' is used to emphasize how big, bad, much etc something is.

He is not that handsome.

It is OK, but what if I used a noun such as 'man' in a sentence with an adjective? Are the sentences I have written below are grammatically OK?

1- He is not that handsome man.

2- He is not that a handsome man.

Thanks.
