      It looks like Thai-fisherman-pants style to me, oversize pants with rope attached at the upper back hips (to tight it later at front like in the pic). I have several myself, also have sewn some and gave to friends.

        It is the fisherman pants, very popular in South East Asia… Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand… They cost around $10, you may get it for less…

    Provided with a retro army soldier feel from the clothes and hair.

    I absolutely love this. He looks like a turn-of-the-century Bavarian farm boy.

    Wow – He’s a male Tilda Swinton!

    Very interesting…
    It’s kind of wild&manly but at the same stylish & fashionable…
    Absolutely YES!

    Montauk seems quite the “it” place now. Recently spent a summer very near by. I totally understand the attraction, the feeling is light years from the city.
    Btw, he certainly has a look going on…hesitant at first but I like it. The hair’s cool, the pants are crazy cool, gold necklace, bare feet–I’m feeling it all.

  29. Carmen

    July 15, 2012 at 11:55 am

    Love his hair style! he looks like a soldier but dress as a farm man! he totally have something!


  30. Stephanie

    July 15, 2012 at 11:57 am

    So cool. It’s sort of farmhand chic, right down to the hair and the skin freckled from the sun. Makes me think of Steinbeck and the dustbowl of the 30s.

  31. comme fraiche

    July 15, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    and why is the one pant leg shorter than the other?

    Amazing pants!!!

    He is really beautiful, but probably married already! Great shot. Nice colors, and he’s got a lovely hair and cool style. I like this very much!

  34. Martha

    July 15, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    You mught think he just grabbed into his cupboard but I think he has real style, especially as he seems to pose so natural and cool picture! Http://

    July 15, 2012 at 12:30 pm

    I love this look, the easy way the pants are tied, the bare feet, the wet hair. It looks so beachy.

  36. Alison

    July 15, 2012 at 12:45 pm

    So very different! It looks like you found him in a field rather than the street, but I really really love it! The pants look so unbelievable comfy and his shirt is rolled up with the perfect amount of casual.

  37. LIZPR

    July 15, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    Put this in sepia tone, scuff it up a bit, and it could be a Depression-era photo!

  38. umanbn

    July 15, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    Very cool…I have something like those pants at home which I made myself from a beautiful indigo fabric…and they’re perfect for summer. I like the way he still manages to look both edgy and relaxed….

    Great hair!!… wonder if he dyes it?
    Really love the colour :D


  41. ttea

    July 15, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    He sort of reminds me of a peasant boy from another time period. An early settler perhaps. I think it’s the pants, with the tie, that make me think that.

    His hair looks like Tilda Swinton, but I love his bravery for rocking that awesome look!

    Beautiful composition. For aspiring photographers who ask Scott for his “trick”…this picture is a tutorial in how to mix and match colors ( skin and hair tone with the ground, the green background color blocking the brown pants, the shirt matching the sky, and the color pop of that netting) to create an aesthetically pleasing photograph. Our eyes love harmony in colors; there’s no trick in utilizing this, just a good deal of studying…and some talent.

  46. Anthony

    July 15, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    Excellent. Can’t understand why the left leg is shorter unless he hitched up the trouser.

  47. Lizzie

    July 15, 2012 at 3:36 pm

    Tell us more about his pants, please. Love ‘em! I want a pair this summer. Great picture.

    Love it. Pretty fascinating how one leg of his pants are shorter than the other.

    They look like Thai fisherman pants or a version of them. Love!

  59. Megan

    I really like this look, but not liking the uneven pant leg. Looks effortless, in a good way.

    July 15, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    I love his pants. Love the photo, but most of all I love his coloring. Its so exotic. And, barefoot guys look sexy. Where is he exactly? And how do I get there?

  64. Name*

    July 15, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    @ Murphy; Thats a genius observation. he does look like Tilda Swinton, who I always thought would make a great looking guy, even though she is a great looking lady, apparently correctly.

    Wow! This photo is a testament that one should travel and get out of their environment to see and meet men like this. Not to forget the amazing composition of the photo too. Love this one Scott. Why do you insist on making it so hard to pick a handful of my favorites photos you shoot in a month? Oy!

    July 16, 2012 at 10:42 am

    This is such an arresting photo that I keep coming back to it.
    I’m sure now the reason being is how ‘otherworld’ the subject looks; his coarse linen pants, the amazing hair, his pure kinetic energy and of course his ‘pointy’ ears.
    Proof of Fae?

  76. Nomadic D

    July 16, 2012 at 10:43 am

    I have a pair of those Thai fisherman’s pants too, so comfortable in the summer!

    Glowing skin and hair: great lighting. Great proportions: wide shoulders, narrow waist, long neck and limbs.

    Hope he wears sunblock!

    One pant leg being longer than the other is too droll, and something no serious peasant would tolerate–or, in this case, afford.

    Very comfy, casual look. For some reason, the more I look at it, after the initial ‘oh his trouser legs are uneven’ moment, I really appreciate the belt and the way that shirt fits him.
