      Me too! There’s so much effortless style to the folks captured in these shots. This guy, for instance, doesn’t at all look like he woke up and thought heavily about what to throw on – it just seems natural and cool in a very casual way. I love that.

    What you shot is great as always, but I wonder what he was shooting. Is it a bird, is it a plane? …Or Superman maybe…

    Arts on Main? Was there a couple of months ago, super stylish street goers. Glad you finally got to see the Southern part of the world!

    Oh look, a hipster! If you want to shoot more photos of this kind of look just come out to Portland, Oregon.

      Trust me, Sam Lambert is far from hipster. This is just him showing off his versatility when it comes to his style, ha.

    That is one stylish guy. I love the hat matched with the rest on in black. Very chic and cool.

    Perfection. Not everyone could pull it off, but this dude nails it.

      Completely agree. Not everyone can wear this ‘simple’ black so well.


    October 26, 2012 at 5:27 pm

    I like his black outfit combined with the red hat!!

      Effortless? I’d like to see the effort it takes to get those pants on and off….

    Love this one


    October 26, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    Is that Sam as in Sam Lambert? I don’t think I have ever seen him dress this way before! Still looks fantastic nonetheless.

    The mix of modern hipster (in a good way) and ’60s-’70s groove is really working here. He looks super-cool.

    I’m 17 years old and consider myself an admirer and fan of Sam Lambert’s style and effortlessness when it comes to tailored suits but this was totally unexpected! Never in my life would I have thought to see him in a hipster-esque look and do it so well! Thanks for this Scott!

    impeccable aura with the leather jacket adding the final touch. any clues as to where to get it?

    You came to Johannesburg? How fantastic! I wish I had known you where here! I hope they took you to all the right spots? I see you where in Braamfontein (awesome), did you get to 44 Stanley and Arts on Main, Newtown, the city centre? maybe even Illovo? And there are some awesome areas in Soweto. Unfortunately so often when foreigners come to Jozi (Johannesburg) they only get taken to ‘fancy’ places like Sandton and Melrose Arch (the super rich tiny bubbles), then, to show you the ‘flip’ side, off to Soweto you go on a ‘guided tour’, the typical SA Tourism ‘just add water’ package… There is SOOOO much more to this city! I hope with all my heart (being a very big Satorialist fan for MANY years) they they showed you the hear of our city, because it one of the most beautiful hearts you will ever experience. I have traveled to many cities across the world, but I always return to Jozi.
    I hope you had a wonderful stay with us

    Somebody recognize the leather jacket and what brand it is? Looks stunning!

    oooh and you should be touring rest of the continent. stylish people everywhere you go.
