Jort Paul Wouter Kelder was 20 years old when he started at Quote magazine as an intern. Quote magazine is the Dutch equivalent to America’s Forbes magazine. 13 years later, as the editor in chief, he decided to stop and continue his work as a journalist and free-lance-media-uhhhmmmm don’t know how to describe Jort really.. One thing is sure, he’s outspoken and has a strong personality.
We like Jort! He has a great style and is open-minded + says what he feels. Which happens to contain some good messages from time to time.
The majority of (Dutch) people reason that his suit pants are too tight, too short and that suspenders are for old-fat guys. WRONG!

As a well-known Dutch celebrity, it’s smart to distinguish yourself by dressing differently. Suspenders are definitely his signature gear. I wonder if he wears some suspenders on his pajamas.. J And his pajamas are probably bespoke and carry a fine Neapolitan pinstripe!
Check out Jort with Dutch Finance Minister, Mr. Zalm. Posing with their suspenders.
He is a man of great taste. Cars, food, wine, but women? He was dating a fun Dutch celebrity for a while, but she hated his pink super-slim-fit pants and he wouldn’t change for the world it seemed. Anyhow, even though the Dutch public at large didn’t understand their relationship. I did! She seems like a fun chica to hang out with, full stop.. It doesn’t mean that just because we tend to dress in bespoke gear that our women should wear executive suits. Although those may look hot and I wouldn’t complain.. You get my point..
Jort’s principal philosophy: “There’s only one thing worse than being talked about and that is not being talked about.” – Oscar Wilde, who else..
His book ‘Pak op Zak’ was cool to read and is interesting for anyone wearing a suit. The cover-girl is quite attractive.. I met her at a Friday afternoon drink once and tried to organize her phone number but she blew me off. Only later to find out that she’s not into men… haha Pfffewww..
