I was having a little bit of a hard time spotting someone worthy of photographing the other day on South Congress. If you follow me on Twitter, you may have caught some of my tweets from this day. One in particular where I suggested playing an Austin Street Style drinking game: see someone wearing Nike shorts? Drink. Someone in UT orange? Drink. Mom jeans? Shot! Mom jeans ironically? PBR. My friend suggested that hilariously appropriate last addition to the game.
Luckily before I was about to either pass out from too much drinking or just give up and head somewhere else, I heard a stranger say “I want those sunglasses” as they walked by. I looked up to see who they were talking about and found this unusually stylish gentlemen who looked like he was out of a different time and different city. Turns out he was from a different city.

P.S. my favorite thing about this Street Style photo is the contrast of what all the people in the background are wearing
Keep Austin Stylish
