    what brought it back into favor? strange how something that would have seemed like a “miss” a few years ago is all of the sudden on-trend.

      fashion always goes and comes back but I agree its interesting why stuff comes back in trend, is it really on trend or is it only on trend because marketing people say so and push it :/

    Isn’t it a shame that so many os Scott’s subjects have a cigarette in their hands? So much for the “beautiful people” who look cheap, actually. I know they have to go outside to puff and thereby populate Scott’s happy hunting grounds for street photography, so I have no solution short of Scott asking them to stub them out…not likely to happen.

      Since you asked; No. Its not. Its a shame I have to keep reading this same criticism. Yes, people smoke. Its a fact of life, and it doesn’t make them look cheap. I don’t even know what that means. You don’t have the right to ask people to stop doing what they like. there are lys of unhealthy things out there. Do you ask overweight people to stop eating when you see them too?

        whether leaving ppl at what they like to do or not is one thing.
        however, beautifying or glamorizing can be an issue i guess. sure ppl smoke while there also are number of ppl either not liking the habit or further more thinking it disgusting and not glamorous nor fashionable. concern can be sentimentally and rationally legit here, in fact.

      Damn right, nothing groovy about smoking.

      The problem with the smoking isn’t that it looks cheap. If it looked cheap more care would be made to not take these shots. The problem is that it glamorizes smoking. It makes smoking look ok. Short term the nicotine is highly addictive. It dulls the skin. Makes those beautiful people that Scott shoots look old prematurely. Long term it causes cancer and other horrible diseases.

    Now that brings me back. I had a couple of those when I was a tween — The Beatles put them on the map back then!

    I like the way the hair is caught in the scarf and shows off the cap nicely on the left photo.
    Some styling never changes through the ages like the way I belted my trench some 30 years ago and is still going strongly.

    In America…and elsewhere…it is called a newsboy cap…much more youthful and less ostentatious than a fedora. Love it.

      Interesting–I’ve always heard hats like those in the photos referred to as Greek fisherman’s caps. (I’ve generally heard the term “newsboy cap” used in reference to a different sort of hat–a flat cap with a soft crown that usually snaps onto or is attached to the front of the brim.) But I agree that these hats are great-looking and far less tiresome than fedoras!

    “Greek fisherman’s cap”
    The tie/braid across the top, the wider brim, and the gathers make it so.
    (“Newsboy caps” have smaller brims, and are more square. Also the Greek ones are usually dark wool? whereas newsboys were usually brown canvas.)

    Do fishermen actually wear them in Greece? ;)
