Blogger JV said ... (5:45 PM) : 

That is a fuckin' sharp look. I'd totally wear that. I like it especially as it would look sharp on most any guy, not just the good-looking ones.


Blogger Hannah said ... (5:46 PM) : 

awesome colour combination. is it just me or is this guy actually pulling off a receding hairline?


Blogger Jules AF said ... (5:46 PM) : 

I love this outfit. I love everything about it.

Blogger Justin FitzPatrick, The Shoe Snob said ... (5:59 PM) : 

great look! a dark brown velour blazer almost always looks good especially when paired with a light blue! Love the gloves in the coat pockes, such a subtlety.

Blogger VintageCollector said ... (6:11 PM) : 

I'm digging all of this - the cool blue shades (a la Steve McQueen), the caramel gloves, gingham check shirt, and sporty sport coat! Wish I could relate to other pics like this one.


Anonymous Indie Mom and the Reluctant Banker said ... (6:11 PM) : 

I'm sort of sceptical about the pants but the brown and blue combo looks nice. As does his smile.


Blogger Style Scanner said ... (6:15 PM) : 

Gloves in pocket once more... Super spring fresh even for a bitingly cold Paris!

This is a guy who clearly has "Swagger" love it

Fantastic. Even more fantastic that he doesn't have a cigarette in his hand.

My favorite photo ever


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:42 PM) : 

Without question, Mr. Cortina is one of my biggest style influences.


Anonymous Mister B said ... (6:42 PM) : 

Officially a personal style icon. Effortless style with such timeless pieces. The gloves just add that modern touch.


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:44 PM) : 

Style?! More like a JCrew ad...

great candid shot!

Anonymous Cheri said ... (6:51 PM) : 

The blue of that jacket is AMAZING when paired with that jacket! Definitely well-put-together. I can see why you chose to photograph him!


Blogger Mitchisms said ... (7:02 PM) : 

this guy is my absolute favorite! He always looks great never over the top, always chic and finished with out being too fussy or too studied.


Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (7:05 PM) : 

Beautiful photo, Beautiful outfit, Beautiful man! xo


Blogger the brown man said ... (7:09 PM) : 


It is always a pleasure to see photographs of him. It's always the subtleties that separate him; from the wider lapels and rolled on the corduroy jacket (looks a lot like a Tom Ford cut); to the gloves in the breast pocket. Simple styling, perfect execution.

His sunglasses remind me of those worn by Adrien Brody in The Darjeeling Limited. Anyone know where Mr. Cortina's are from?


Blogger Will Davies said ... (7:10 PM) : 

if this said 'Mr Derivatives Broker, Fulham', it would still work. And that's not meant as a complement.


Blogger Giulia said ... (7:15 PM) : 

Very beautiful combinations of color between the brown jacket and beige trousers.
Spectacular spontaneity of smile! :-)

...Nice Brown jacket & fit!


Blogger kathrynnova said ... (7:28 PM) : 

the two-toned gloves in the pocket and the braided and subtle belt make this simple and clean outfit very elegant.

the sunglasses are also divine.


Anonymous Agyesh said ... (7:35 PM) : 

Ahhhh.. Mr. Cortina... Don't you just get it right every time... Respect...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:53 PM) : 

I liked the crispness of the blue tattersall shirt against the soft velvet brown of the jacket. Also white pants, yahoo!


Blogger Members Only Last Member said ... (7:59 PM) : 

Nice. Is that moleskin or velvet/cashco jacket?


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:02 PM) : 

OMG <3. Now to get away from the moronic crush-talk I love this photo, it's great to see him smiling and looking like he is naturally enjoying himself.IMO the jacket is wonderful (is that brown velvet?) and the wide lapels are just my thing. I wish I could get my shirt collar to stand so perfectly and yet naturally like that, and that hint of glove! Masculine elegance to a T!


Blogger Lisa Petrarca said ... (8:19 PM) : 

Absolute perfection! The blue/brown color combo is cool. He has it down...every last detail, even the gloves in pocket says, "I'm cool!"


Blogger Erik said ... (8:23 PM) : 

I love how crisp the chocolate brown jacket is against the bight pants and shirt. But I think the gloves peeking out of the pocket makes this picture for me.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:28 PM) : 

is that velvet?


Blogger Rock Couture said ... (8:29 PM) : 

Super Chic! Great shot!


Anonymous HW90 said ... (8:34 PM) : 

Always looks fantastic. So classic, yet so current. Mature and athletic come to mind. And he looks so comfortable, which can't be said for a lot of the gents in these photos. A definite original and a sartorial inspiration.


Anonymous Well Done said ... (8:42 PM) : 

he looks great.


Anonymous king of style said ... (8:42 PM) : 

What I love about this guy is he doesn't try to hard-effortless is such a hard look. The look isn't 'in your face, look at me', but very simple and understated. He knows what suits him, and that is what makes him stand out! The ultimate style icon.


Blogger Vinda Sonata said ... (8:46 PM) : 

mr. cortina is always my favorite. he's elegant, handsome, and classy. post more about him, Scott!

Kickass shades.

Just got a chocolate brown molesking overcoat this the luxury of mama's arms and looks just as good. Great accessories, makes you wonder about his shoes (cognac calfskin?). Great looks on this shot, Sart.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:34 PM) : 

i heart heart heart this man, if for no other reason than he's got leather gloves sticking out of his pocket. but everything else is pretty good too.

i simply love the whole set! but also look at the belt - a little masterpiece!


Blogger Keith said ... (12:13 AM) : 

Suede jacket? I think so. Looks good with that shirt. I usually don't like trousers that white but this is very well done.

Great example of something anyone can do but never becomes passe.

Hi Everybody.
Excuse me, but who is Mr. Cortina? I saw some pics about him here, but i don't know him. But yeah, his style is very brilliant.

I want this velvety dark chocolate brown jacket.I love this darkness illuminated by the white pants and his smile.The spring wink of the vichy shirt breaks the seriousness and gives a youthful look.

Mr. Cortina caught my attention. I am from Cortina (d'Ampezzo, Italy), so i hope the name comes from his origins, maybe i'll meet him :)

And once again "la maestria italiana" of wearing almost white trousers in winter without looking cheap!
Non so come facciano but I'm jealous:-)

This picture is just bursting with great colors. Mr. C always has it going on. Never overdone. I have everything in my wardrobe except THAT blazer. Perfect.

Best dressed man of the World !


Blogger Laguna Beach Fogey said ... (8:29 AM) : 

Superb! I'm not sure about the sunglasses, though. This outfit would look best on guys who are fit and good-looking.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:55 AM) : 

Sart, why are your photographs looking increasingly retouched?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:20 AM) : 

Granted he is gorgeous; however, it's the details - the five o'clock shadow - the watch slightly showing - the perfect blue of the checked shirt. You could put this look on hundreds of guys but they couldn't pull it off at all. He just has that whole "what is all the fuss about" awesome cool.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:40 AM) : 

I loved the coulours!! I really love blue and brown!

No matter what, this guy always looks like a million bucks. No gimmicks; he just knows clothes and wears them very well.

You can't ever go wrong with a blue gingham shirt, they're just a great staple and every man should own one.

I'm wearing one today!

"This outfit would look best on guys who are fit and good-looking."

Well, that's true of any outfit, but what I like about this one is that you don't have to be fit and good-looking to wear it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:03 PM) : 

I like the shirt and the gloves that peep out. I could do without the glasses. Nice photo, I like how you captured him smiling!

Mr. Cortina rocks.

The gloves in the pocket, the sunglasses, the shirt cuffs showing. Immaculate yet casual.

Seemingly unstudied perfect.


Blogger Brian said ... (3:09 PM) : 

great look, but feels just a tad early for white pants in Paris.

this guy looks cool, fat lapels and all. i really like the way his pants fit, makes him look sharp.

I have been a big fan of Mr. Cortina's style since the first photo I saw of him many season's ago. It's great to see a man of his calibre dress so well. He has impeccable taste, effortless and chic. Does anyone know his real name?



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:23 PM) : 

one of your most inspiring photographs. great look !


Blogger robinson said ... (4:31 PM) : 

i agree with the guy above who says this is standard sloane/eurotrash chic. he pulls it off despite this.
sartorialist, when are you going back to real people not just endless examples of what the fashion in-pack are wearing? do you simply not move in that world any more?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:31 PM) : 

oh my god. love this. so fresh. love the light, flat front pants and check shirt with dark, rich chocolate jacket. i'm showing this to my husband immediately. beautiful.


Blogger Raul Villalobos said ... (4:48 PM) : 

This guy is my hero. He wears things and makes them look effortless. Even in your book the couple of times he is showcased you can see his natural ease in dressing. Tom Ford and this guy totally inspire.

again we are seeing a distinct lack of footwear at the moment - would be intriguing to see how he was dealing with Paris winter as I have never seen Mr Cortina wearing socks.


Blogger sm said ... (2:25 PM) : 

@Anonymous (RJ) his name is George (or perhaps Jorge, he's from Miami) Cortina. Successful and well-known stylist. I'd love to know who the jacket is by. It was freezing in Paris, so this outfit was not exactly appropriate for the weather.



Blogger The Clever Pup said ... (3:55 PM) : 

I think this is the first time you've caught George smiling.
