    Is it possible for two schoolchildren to be more adorable in their uniforms? Impossible.

    The striped tie and the plaid trousers, skirt is lovely. And then all the little things that are “off” that makes it so on. The boys collar being up with the tie and the ‘high water’ trousers. The girl wearing her tie in the belt is killing me, love. Her shirt is a little too big, his a tad small. And the joy in their faces. Oh wonderful. Thank you.

    I love the tie tucked into the belt. They’re so cute. It’s wonderful to see the cultural differences — the nose piercing for example. :] // â–˛ â–˛

    That is such a cute photo! I love the clashing of the striped tie and short plaid pants…but the tie being too long on the little girl is the icing on the cake!

    i feel like the tie tucked under the belt buckle is so considered and unexpected that i won’t be surprised when i see a well-heeled woman repeating the look.
    and they are ridiculously cute!

    She has a pocket square!!! Other best thing in this photo is his precision haircut. I think the authenticity, no stylists here, is what make this photo so special.

    Not a contrived thing with their expressions.
    Love the nonchalant way they wear their uniforms.
    Sweet how he leans in to get closer to his pretty friend.

    Who doesn’t love a pair of tartan slacks or a tartan skirt?

    Perfect example of why its important not to care too much about clothes. The impression you leave on people is much more about the smile on your face and the energy you bring to the people around you than about having every item you’re wearing in place.

    These kids are the anti-fashionistas and I really like that more non-fashion people are showing up in other photographs Scott has shot in India. It reminds me more of the people imaged in the first years of The Sartorialist.

    The majority of subjects in the past couple of years are fashionistas, the wealthy elite of the fashion world. It makes sense for being a photographer in the fashion world to cater to corporate fashion leaders.

    For me, its photographs of people like these kids heading to/from school that keep me coming back to this website.

      Yes, I agree Dik Dik,
      I like seeing the real people on the streets and how they interpret the fashion options of the day, more than the models or those attending fashion week events. But all are interesting, only we ordinary people, more so

    This is such a great photograph, and a spark for a project on just school uniforms here in India. They are really quite interesting & diverse, now that this picture suddenly throws light on them!

    Even if you despise kids, if you can’t look at this picture and smile, you’re one cold, heartless scoundrel!

    The beauty of the British Education system. You can tell the Brits influence through out the world by looking at school uniforms no matter where you are; India or East Africa.
