    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    Mr. CORTINA –

    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?

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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 (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.
