    Can’t say that either the hat nor the jacket works for him.. The small lapel elongates his neck even more and the hat gives him an freakshow statue

    This shot is less about the clothes and more about his expression. Intense, vulnerable, striking.

    This hat is an unusual style, but it works on a guy. Amazing shot.

    Well … ummhh … he looks a litte uncomfortable and tight-lipped. But still, a very good portrait.

      I know! He’ll have the perfect response to this fascinating portrait, I suspect!

          Very cool–thanks for that link, oh Well-Versed In Art History Guy! (And sorry I missed it on my first read-through of the comments. I plead a long and eventful day including meeting Mr Schuman!)

    That hat looks as though it was made for that guy. What a good example of how clothing can have such an interesting and personal interaction with the features of whoever is wearing it, and build such a strong visual relationship between the person and the clothing.

    this reminds me of german renaissance portraits – dürer – and there is also something clerical about him – fashion as a religion. but is he wearing his hat backwards?

      I was just thinking exactly the same thing! In fact I cam here to post this thought too.

      When I studied art history we went to Belgium to look at 15c. painting. This fashionista’s studied, austere aesthetic would fit right in with what we saw…

      This is such a wonderful photograph, Scott you have captured the intensity and devotion of fashion people so well here.

    This makes me think of a Hans Holbein portrait. Striking.

    A modern version of those weird Van Eyck`s characters..

    kind of twenty first century Vermeer portrait…

    Brilliant shoot!
    I love the expression ..it’s so intense and stern…and at the same time there is something fragile in this seriousness.

    Really Really love it.

    congrats on getting that right depth of field, and the exact focus that allows us to see even every eyelash. the severity of his face and hat make me think of the old 15th c. flemish portraits. maybe it’s dries>antwerp that brings them to mind, who knows.

    He totally looks alike Giovanni Arnolfini, the groom in the “Arnolfini Portrait” made by Jan van Eyck!
