Recently, Borodin and Okounkov [2] established a remarkable identity for Toeplitz determinants. Two other proofs of this identity were subsequently found by Basor and Widom [1], who also extended the formula to the block case. We here give one more proof, also for the block case. This proof is based on a formula for the inverse of a finite block Toeplitz matrix obtained in the late seventies by Silbermann and the author.
