    No. 过时 is never used to describe people. "他/你/她过时" doesn't make sense. However, we often say "他/你/她的...过时", such as "你的观点过时了", "他的衣服有点过时".

    他已经过时了. We always say it directly in Chinese.

    对于这个的说法,也一直在改变,各个地方都有不太一样的词来表达这个意思,有些是贬义的。现在经常说的还是从国外引进的,‘你OUT了’, 这个没有贬义。

    他的思想已经过时了
    她的衣着已经过时了。

    Sure. Generally, if we say someone is 过时, we're saying his/her ideas or dressings are old-fashion.
    Examples:1、她看起来真过时。2、我爸爸是个过时的人。

    not fashion and popular ,not in time,so is it 呵呵~
