When former fashion executive Scott Schuman began posting his candid snaps of people in eye-catching outfits to his blog back in 2005, he could not have predicted that by 2013, he’d be considered a fashion photography pioneer.

Schuman’s blog, The Sartorialist, chronicles street style in fashion-forward cities like New York, Milan, Paris and Stockholm, promoting a dialogue with the public about fashion, individuality and everyday life. “We tend to think that to achieve great personal style, someone must have perfect clarity about who they are and what they stand for. I politely disagree,” Schuman writes in the introduction to The Sartorialist, the first of his two bestselling photography anthologies. “I think conflict about who you are often leads to even greater self expression.” These contradictions, he maintains, “produce the most interesting looks.”

While Schuman’s subjects are often aware of his lens — they’ve clearly stopped what they were doing to pose for him, or at the very least, to acknowledge the camera — none of his subjects have dressed for him. That, they’ve done for themselves.

Inspired by Schuman’s photography of men in cities across Europe and by his fashion philosophy in general, we created our own “candid” street scenes of suavely suited men with the help of a professional model and clothing lent by boutiques across Tarrant County.

We hope our sartorial expression inspires your own everyday dressing.
