    Love the contrast of the graffiti in the background and the bright blue teal color of his coat!

    You totally took this pic because you want to steal his jeans. He's done a good job of wearing them in tho, I will give him that.

    Love his rough & tumble look. My dad always wore woolen jackets like that, so I have a bit of a soft spot for them. If those are Blundstones he's wearing, you can go anywhere & do anything in those shoes! I love mine. He's somehow reminding me of Heath Ledger though… which makes me feel a little sad.

    Also about how u approach ur subjects to shoot- ur gear, journeys….

    May be 'cutting edge' for NYC 20-somethings, but, come on, it's an everyday sight where I live. Are those some sort of $400 trendy designer jeans or something? Does he ever take his cigarette case…or whatever that is…out of his pocket?

    From head to toe, some of the finest shades the color blue has to offer. Also, buttons undone, paint spackled on boots–accessories that work just as cleverly as barrettes in hair, polish on nails.

    He looks authentic, like a true working artist. I love the aged patina of his jeans, and the cell phone/wallet imprints. That takes some doing. Sort of vintage 'California Gold digger style'. It says "this is how I really live' not some contrived attitude towards 'chicness'.

    The jacket says "its cold"! The shoes say "this is how I live/work comfortably". The paint splatter brings an attitude, that is just … built in! I am secretly wondering what his hair is like, beneath the cap. Is is curly, slicked back or cut short. He does have a bit of Heath Leger to him.

    He also looks like he can fix a tire and start a fire!

    Scott, I wrote about you on my blog 'Scott Schuman behind the camera'.

    Thanks a million!

    Fantastic jacket, looks like vintage, certainly not the kinds of fabric you see every day. I see people loving the imprint of his cell phone and wallet. For such lose-fit jeans, I suspect he might have done the sandpapering for effect, although it does look cool. Great outfit overall! Jorge from WPB

    Ruggedly Handsome; stylish in a proletariate kind of way. I love that he really gets a lot of use from his garb, especially his Blunnies. And the way he nonchalantly cuffed his wonderfully faded jeans is very appropo in this context. He just has a certain ease about his style, with which I'm sure he makes no big deal. It appears that he smokes, which I appreciate, although I'm only a social smoker when I drink…a lot! Anywayzzz…I appreciate his sense of style, and therefore, himself.

    amazing how jeans can look fantastic when worn daily and used daily for 'work'.

    interesting that others will pay in the hundreds for a pair of jeans purchased off the rack to achieve this look.

    the celestial blue of his jacket keeps popping up in various magazines as well as your website which has been showing bits of navy and various blues.

    Love the expression on his face and his nature so comfortable. But what I really want to know is how you find these perfect backgrounds in complimentary colors and muted tones of the same bright teal, on the same street as your subject. It's as if you see the setting and then ask this wonderful creature- "Will you stand over there please?"…. wow. …you are truly a painter of form and color and spirit!

    Re. "Everything that's worn is fashion" )that would be the commentator who needs ALL CAPS to be heard): Yes, true. But there is interesting fashion and dull fashion; I–many of us–find this division/disagreement fascinating, and believe that dissenters should not be shouted down any more than we should establish a dress code, whether of the interesting fashion nor the dull.

    But I would say, Keep your pants on.

    Someone commented that this is not fashion. Maybe this isn't "fashion" but he certainly has "style". There are tons of men that wear dirty jeans and beat up shoes, and they don't come out looking like this!!
    I think it's a pack of smokes. The edges are too hard to be a wallet, and too pronounced to be an iphone.

    For whatever reason, this is a great shot!!

    Great to see a guy back.
    The comments fascinate me…we all judge so much.
    He bought the jeans, wore them in, they're new, he bought them like that, he sanded them..
    The pocket wear is cigarettes, a wallet, an iphone…its so great/its so uncool!He's "original", "authentic", "ordinary", "normal"… he's a cool painter, no he worked for Ralph, its all planned and contrived…
    Look at the paint on his beaten up boots!…he just bought them like that…
    He can light a fire n change a tire…no, he works in a fashion house.
    One picture – a hundred different impressions (that maybe lost if we knew the 'real story'
    I guess that's why we come back Scott, don't ever change! :-)

    Reminds me of Walton Ford, whom I went to RISD with, but this guy doesn't look like he's in his fifties. He's got a great painter style though, so maybe it is, and time has been good to him, just as the muses have!
