    Guy? Girl (I am assuming this is a young lady)? Androgynous features mixed with the laid-back western denim cuts and western belt. Great layering, all business but with no shortage of style, for sure. Sart, you have committed another act of photographic genius with this picture–fantastic lighting.

    Now here’s someone who is comfortable in their own skin and it translates so well to their attire. Nice shot and lighting.

    Mr.Schuman, I have been meaning point out some beautiful adrogynous style to you, and this reminded me. You really should take a look at Corinne Lee, the bass player of an Atlanta band called Snowden. Really amazing style and stage presence.

    ok.. the fashion is great! But the composition and colors in this shot are so striking! Love the light on his face, the colored background with his red hair, the way he is standing, and that shadow on the right side of him. Beautiful contrast. Good job…again!

    Nice layering and the John Deere belt buckle is exemplary. But, I agree with everyone else that the Sartorialist is helping this look with the composition and lighting. One for the book no doubt!

    Great advert for wearing gloves.

    Blue skin doesn’t go with very much.

    Aside from all the text book layering and the denim on denim with the mix of plaid.

    The person has a allot of attitude and so the sticker beside the person is a beautiful fit for the photo. Oh that would be the sticker that says ” [email protected]*K UP STUFF”

    1. Great, great shot.
    2. Bonus points for excluding any of the glossy new condo developments which are taking over the Bowery area and ruining its look.
    3. Whether a male or female, this person is (a) comfortable in their skin and (b) looks great.

    interesting, a woman dressed like a man? a man dressed like a kid? the belt and the colour of the trausers are great. the jacket however, in my opinion its too blue, a very intense jean, too new, too neat. It doesnt match with the rest.

    needless to say, great photo. This boy looks incredibly pensive and careless at the same time. The rugged denim juxtaposed that ethereal hair are amazing

    Boy or girl, it’s a terrific look. Red hair and blue denim was always my favourite colour scheme. Regardless, inquiring minds want to know: was this person wearing cowboy boots, or running shoes like real cowboys do?

    The denim jacket is NOT back. Haha! But this is quite a fantastic shot. Slap a logo on it and it could be part of an ad campaign.

    totally cutting edge. perfectly in tune with the pulse of culture and the current gaze back to the 90s. very reminiscent of jenny shimizu bringing androgyny to calvin klein, but now! we need models like this to push gender boundaries and look great!
