comment Etymology of the different uses of “temps?” / L'étymologie des homonymes de “temps”
@Gilles: Good point. Most of the references of temps are to "time." Some refer to "nature," i.e. a year, or seasons, but not specifically to "weather," which is the other meaning. Maybe "seasons" is operative reference, but that's not clear. The common denominator I can think of is "speed." That is "speed" of activity (time), and speed of molecules (temperature) and other weather causes. But I don't get this idea from my readings.

OK, I'd use something like "tempo" for time in English. Then the question is, does "tempo" have a common origin with "temperature" (or weather).

comment Is there a “non-religious” definition of “catholique”?
Except that they were "L'Homme, et La Musique," Therefore, "abnormal" is fine in this context, "unchaste" (or impudique) is not.

So it was a reference to dress, rather than wealth. That was the kind of answer I was looking for.

I did read this (or rather, the English version, which is shorer), and got something out of it, like the part of the legging, but wanted more context and color.

That's the name. "Nowadays would only be used in a historical context" explains why it's not easy to remember.

OK, so it means, "We're not the USUAL kind of lovers." That makes sense in this context. Another word I might use in this context is "orthodox."
