On the Street…Mr. Cortina, Paris



Usually a double-breasted jacket is a bit serious but leave it to Mr. Cortina to wear it with a perfect casual cool.

    I envy Mr. Cortina’s wardrobe and his effortless cool. Also the way he maintains both even as he adds years. Bravo!

    He doesn’t look cool he looks a mess. The jacket is to big and ill fitted and the trousers do not go with it. Putting his hands in the jacket pockets make it look scruffy.

    I’m a big fan of Mr. Cortina’s, but I personally don’t care for the “Capt. Kirk” boots. Do love the fact that you captured him on the same corner of the “Rainy Day” painting. Iconic gent at an iconic locale. Thanks, Sart.

    Utter class. Beautifully put together. The muted colours and cut echo the tailorings military roots. But he wears it with great elán. Nice shades too.

    The button is about to pop off with great force,the sleeves are way too long,the hem looks a mess,hands tucked into the pockets (a big no no!)…but other than that…Mr.Cortina rocks sprezzatura!

    Lapels Need a good press. And a shave wouldn’t hurt his “@cool”.
    Brown pants with a blue sports coat was a poor choice too.
    Grey would have been better.
    Nice boots though.

    I don’t get it. It just looks like an orphaned suit jacket.

    Okay, Cortina, you always mess up a potentially good thing. First, SHAVE! Then you are no doubt aware this is a SUIT jacket and thus requires matching trousers. Instead you wear these gigoloish tight high waders with unspeakable 70′s Beatle? biker? Boots. You obviously think you look great but in Paris this won’t do. In fact only your homeland where your pusillanimous countrymen march up and down that damn Fortezza and display your imagined elegant plumage in a creepy sort of mating ritual. Grow up you ain’t that young anymore.

      I know I shouldn’t jump to anyone’s defense esp. when not necessary (but being a lawyer I cannot help myself) because this is so uncalled for.. We get it Harry, you have some serious objections as to the outfit and styling, but, come on, he looks amazing, he can pull off anything and he oozes something irresistible, like Richard Burton vibes or something I yet have to define.

      And what is this @#$%! about growing up?!

    Amazing? To whom? I am glad you “got it” councilor, but he is an almagamation of two styles which clash and that should be indeed called for. It is simply puerile to dress half elegant half motorcycle punk and who is his constituency. Certainly here in NY if a man dressed like this he would be thought of a swish who is trying way too hard to be hip cool or whatever. And don’t come back with any PC garbage. Richard Burton (burp)would never have dressed like this- yeah this defining thing should go deeper. Read Alan Flusser maybe you’ll learn something

    Mr. Cotsina’s “sprezzatura” is both timeless and effortless – always a pleasure to see him make an appearance in the Sartorialist!

    Wherever someone’s breaking the rules and looking amazing there will be some envious schmuck pretending the rules matter more than the brilliance attained by their breaking.
