    Love this – especially for the tortoise sunglasses which are always elegant.

    what I like about this, is that he’s dress up very well, he looks casual but classy at the same time! I would define him a modern cities explorer! :)

    Wow, this is a man with confidence. A man who knows that owning your age is sexy but that young fashion touches go a long way. I love how he seems to be walking with purpose, but still manages to look nonchalant. Great picture.

    The glasses did it. I want a pair too.

    I love it when jackets have been worn so much that the sleaves begin to honeycomb like that.

    Very strong I think. Masculine. The glasses have great contrast. Simple, I love it.

    It’s not only the clothes, it’s “sprezzatura”, an elegant nonchalance.

    Parisian men are in a class of their own. You wouldn’t be seeing this in Vancouver!
    Love the sunglasses.

    Love the single-button blazer. Not every man can do this.

    Love the olive drab single-buttoned, peaked-lapel blazer…moleskin? Combined with navy and tortoise shell (and a tanned complexion )–understated, casual but worldly elegance.

      Completely agree (except for the “Combined with navy” part).

        Ouch! Scratchy-Scratchy…

          Nooo! I really just wish it were with a color other than navy–I’m with you for the rest of the comment (tortoiseshell, tan, elegant, etc). Didn’t mean I disagree with the whole 2nd half! (Hangs head in shame b/c of unclear phrasing.)

            It’s o.k…my cats used to scratch me all the time (they had impeccable tastes, like yourself).

    Plain and simple, and very effective as a result. What stops it looking mundane are the details; tortoiseshell glasses, single-button wide lapel jacket and coordinating trousers and jersey.

    I wonder what he’s wearing on his feet? Black brogues? Hopefully not brogues without socks.

    This guy just exudes ‘cool’. Great way to capture it!

      I agree – Very cool. Great style , which the French seems to have in abundance.

    I don’t like so much T-shirt and jacket, but the picture is great.
    Thanks for show us the real menswear.

    The picture is appealing, no question, but I m not sure if it is appealing in a positive way. I think the guy is a little bit too sure about himself …

    I want Mr Cortina! <3

    What the world needs (among other things) is more color! Would that more men in the US had the – what? style? confidence? – to tuck a pocketsquare into a casual jacket. It’s the dashes that do it!

    He always gets it right. Always so chic and well put together. Grown and sexy. Love the shades.

    Why does he always wear his jackets so tight?

    Why is everyone smoking in Paris?! But besides, great style!

    As always with George, it’s so much more than the clothes and your picture captures this completely.

    Mr. Cortina! It’s been Sooo long, he always looks fabulous!!

    Love the jacket .. but the shirt is awful

    Make no mistake. This is George, the fashion director for Vogue Nippon. The jacket is Anderson Sheppard. Note the deliberate placement of the pocket, the covered buttons, moleskin fabric. He is a minimalist, with such insouciance.

    Love the glasses and jacket, but would look better with a white crisp shirt to match the hankercief!
