Fedoras? Cool. (Calling a Trilby a fedora, not cool.)

Not as cool as he used to be - actual governance will do that to a politician - but still cool.

Not only cool but also kickass. Doctorate in quantum chemistry and the de facto head of Europe? Don't get much cooler than that.

Not cool, never will be. Healthy-ish, but not cool.

Using "ish" as a modifier?

So cool they're literally frozen. Loves me some Italian ices. Always makes me think of my hometown.
