Did you know that we use Russian short adjectives мал (мало, мала, малы) and велик (велико, велика, велики) when we speak about clothes.

For example,

Этот свитер мне мал (велик). This jumper is too small (big) for me.

Это пальто мне мало (велико). This coat is too small (big) for me.

Эта рубашка мне мала (велика). This shirt is too small (big) for me.

Эти ботинки мне малы (велики). These boots are too small (big) for me.
