Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Elvis Costello.
Great look, and I'm glad he finished it with a great pair of shoes.

it looks like something from an old comedy haha:)
such a big fan of your work!
September 15, 2010 at 7:14 pm
Scott, most photographers go far out of their way to never show the trash that is stacked up everywhere in New York. This pic is bubbling with authenticity regarding America's most populated metropolis. Thanks!
September 15, 2010 at 7:19 pm
Suits + cruisers. Always.
And Scott, I always look forward to your NYC photos. For me, Italy is the most inspiring, but NYC is the most…transferable.
Could I Have That?

September 15, 2010 at 9:51 pm
The rusty bike just completes the whole ensemble. I wanna lick his shoes.
September 15, 2010 at 10:35 pm
Sorry, MK's bags don't do it for me at all; the best I can say for them is that they are unaffected, as in "I need these bags and don't care how they look with my outfit."
September 15, 2010 at 10:47 pm
Yes, I'd like to reconfirm this as an Elvis Costello v.2.0 look as noted by a previous poster (mind you I love EC and have seen him in concert half a dozen times).
Must say I'm a little over Ray Ban Wayfarers. Personally I prefer Persols for a similar look with I think, a bit more style.
September 15, 2010 at 10:58 pm
Love his facial expression! Great photo. x
September 15, 2010 at 11:05 pm
I love the comments on his white socks..he looks like the typical bike thief :)
September 15, 2010 at 11:10 pm
For a split second I thought he was Elvis Costello.
September 15, 2010 at 11:29 pm
Appreciate the Vittorio De Sica reference, but this stylish prankster would definitely be out of place in that gloomy masterpiece. Dude, oil your chain – that old beauty has earned it!

a bike thief? one of my worst nightmares — i love my bike!
this photo is perfection. :)
September 15, 2010 at 11:50 pm
What a moustache!
September 16, 2010 at 12:16 am
such a good hat!
September 16, 2010 at 12:19 am
Great look with funny situation.
September 16, 2010 at 12:20 am
the bicycle thief is looking fresh!
September 16, 2010 at 12:23 am
this is just beyond amazing.. i mean the bike and all :)
September 16, 2010 at 12:51 am
isn't that the guy who ties ladies to railroad tracks? does he live in nyc then?
September 16, 2010 at 1:32 am
The combination of hat and glasses is great!!

September 16, 2010 at 1:44 am
The socks are white. Awesome!
Great suit and hat.
Bike seals the deal…!
September 16, 2010 at 1:57 am
I love this shot, he's pretty well-dressed for a thief!
September 16, 2010 at 2:01 am
This is so spirited! I wonder what he was thinking when that was taken?
September 16, 2010 at 2:05 am
The Hype Around...
September 16, 2010 at 2:31 am
Praise the Lord! He's not wearing vans and riding a skate board! It's so good to see a man sport a pork pie hat and shades and and actually look cool!
September 16, 2010 at 3:02 am
Elvis Costello strikes back?
September 16, 2010 at 3:09 am
Mr. Schuman– Clearly the perp can be identified from your most excellent photo. No doubt you have contacted the proper authorities.White socks? And it's after Labor Day! A criminal offense. Oh yeah, BTW, I wondered who stole my bike!;-)
September 16, 2010 at 3:14 am
That looks like a very old suit from the seventies…when people were a tiny bit shorter than now. ;)
September 16, 2010 at 3:18 am
His expression is the perfect accessory for that outfit. Wonderful photo!

September 16, 2010 at 5:29 am

September 16, 2010 at 5:42 am
I really love your pics and blog, since I have not been in NY yet, everybody says that fashion trends from NY reach us only a year after, so this blog gives me the opportunity to verify if it's treu or not and to follow-up what's trendy in NY right now, what people are wearing at that particular day. So I feel more up-to-date now for sure, and this is amazing:)

The white socks are a great addition because the rest of his look is so stylish. It wouldn't translate to the average joe.
September 16, 2010 at 6:03 am
Thank god there's a police man around.
September 16, 2010 at 6:31 am
Great shot love the smart threads/battered bike look especially the seat:
Anna yes leather Bicycle seat most probably Brooks, make amazing leather seats/goods v popular on the fixie bikes here in London and MCR.
September 16, 2010 at 6:41 am
love the spaced out buttons on the cuff
September 16, 2010 at 6:47 am
Is he Elvis Costello? looks like him.
September 16, 2010 at 7:15 am
Hey thats my bike!
September 16, 2010 at 7:44 am
Oh New York, gotta love the garbage on the street.
September 16, 2010 at 8:20 am
I love a photo where you can actually hear the laughter!
September 16, 2010 at 10:12 am
Are the socks white? They look subtley lemony to me. Which would be wonderful.
September 16, 2010 at 11:03 am
hahaha.. thats so funny!! you know, there is this video out there showing how know one cares if they see someone steeling a bike.. its so funny.. The guy takes out a power saw and cuts a lock in Times square.. and nothing happens..This picture reminded me of it.. haha..
proletarian Great Gatsby
How do you get garbage bags look cool?
September 16, 2010 at 11:06 am
ahah cute : D
September 16, 2010 at 11:10 am
I guess that's the best place to find authentic vintage bikes!
September 16, 2010 at 12:07 pm
Aha! So that's what bicycle thieves look like…
September 16, 2010 at 12:20 pm
you can tell he's disreputable: he's wearing white socks with dark trousers and black shoes. it's a dead give-away.
September 16, 2010 at 1:02 pm
a reference to the film? Great movie
September 16, 2010 at 1:08 pm
I think this photo is magic, he really looks the part. I doubt he'd get through that lock though.
September 16, 2010 at 2:57 pm
I donno about the socks but its a very comical post lol. Like the hat too
September 16, 2010 at 3:45 pm
haha, he is really looking like a thief.i like it.i love it.this is a gentleman
September 16, 2010 at 4:48 pm
a very extravagant thief….an artist
September 16, 2010 at 6:06 pm
Patrick Dempsey + Elvis Costello = this guy. And I like it.

September 16, 2010 at 8:36 pm
If I hadn't have read above that it's Elvis Costello, I would have though it's a regular Italian guy :)

September 17, 2010 at 12:29 am
Straw hat, brown suit, white socks and an old, rusty bike. I love it all!
September 17, 2010 at 1:28 am
Best dressed bicycle thief I've ever seen! Digging the hat w the perfectly fitted suit. And the white socks give this whole chic look a bit of gooberosity that makes him fun.
September 17, 2010 at 4:22 am
Fantastic look. He looks like he's straight out of a Fellini film!!!I wish I could wear a hat with as much panache as him….
September 17, 2010 at 6:09 am
September 17, 2010 at 6:30 am
What a fascinating man!!
Mr Schumann, you captured a moment in time, this is one of your great captures!
September 17, 2010 at 6:32 am
And the antithesis between the movie of Vittoria de Sica and today's image is really great!!
September 17, 2010 at 8:11 am
Is this guy setting the bike up to be taken to the trash, or is he resurrecting the bike from sure death? The white socks kill it for me…this guy could do better, but he chooses not to. Can't he find another pole to harass with his bike?
Peace in a Time of War
September 17, 2010 at 2:11 pm
I'm not so sure about his white socks. Threw me off a lil to much.
September 17, 2010 at 6:46 pm
or perhaps I am just insane!!!!
September 17, 2010 at 7:10 pm
September 18, 2010 at 7:10 am
he knows this kind of bike is perfect for styling these days…I am looking for it hard,and he got it…
September 18, 2010 at 9:50 am
I knew this had to be Pete Miszuk!
September 19, 2010 at 1:08 pm
He looks great! Top to toes! Love his smile…
September 19, 2010 at 9:20 pm
Oh my god, it's Elvis Costello!
September 20, 2010 at 12:53 am
