Captain Haddock: I thought you were an optimist. Tintin: You were wrong, weren’t you? I’m a realist. Captain Haddock: Ah, it’s just another name for a quitter. Tintin: You can call me what you like. Don’t you get it? We failed.
We, people from the Tintin Fandom, discuss a lot about how old is Tintin through his adventures. So, I talked with someone from Moulinsart and the person said that when Tintin starts his adventures (The Land of The Soviets) he’s around 16 years old and when he finishes (Tintin and The Picaros) he is around 19 years old.
Analysing that, I made this separation (according to my opinion) with Tintin’s age through the Albums :)

Tintin in every other book:Um, idk man, I just...don't want to fight anyone. I mean, I will if I absolutely must but like...I really don't want to. C'mon everyone, let's be chill and just talk it out, ok? <:n)
Tintin in Land of the Soviets:WHO WANTS TO FIGHT ME. I'LL KICK ANYONE'S ASS. I'LL KICK YOUR ASS. I'LL KICK THE ENTIRE COMMUNIST PARTY'S ASS. I'LL KICK MY DOG'S ASS. I'LL KICK MY OWN ASS.

also tintin’s jeans (which we all love so much
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
) make an appearance as his smart-casual outfit! it’s not very clear but his general just-got-kicked-out-of-the-orphanage-and-owns-no-other-clothes outfit is his yellow shirt and the four-bys; the stuff he wore in the earlier comics
