2013 Best Dressed List


(page 8 of 12)

Cornell Batie

CFO at Mack Avenue Records and executive vice president of Detroit International Jazz Festival

Fashion style:

Very dapper and well coordinated. He likes accessories and custom suits with vests and admits to being a shoe fanatic (“Shoes can make a difference in an outfit more than anything else,” he says). He shops for clothes that accent his physique, favoring particularly flat front pants.

Favorite shops:

The Vestry and Bachrach

Favorite designer:

Sean John

Fashion debut:

“In middle school I used to try to create my own style. One winter I decided I would not wear any coats. I thought I was very sharp in my long-sleeve hookups. I was cold, but I was sharp.”

Fashion advice:

“I try to buy something new every month to keep my wardrobe fresh. But everybody has to find what works for them and what looks good on them individually. And it’s always great to have an objective set of eyes – a second opinion.”
