What's the correct translation of the following phrase: 'the man with whom...'

""мужчина, с которым" OR "мужчина, с кем"? Thanks a lot in advance for your answer.(For some reason you have to write at least 100 additional characters so I'm randomly writing this down).

Literally 

"мужчина, с которым" = "the man with which..."

"мужчина, с кем" = "the man with whom..."

They are both acceptable and almost equivalent constructions with a small stylistic difference. The first variant is the most neutral stylistically.
