Oh Snap! Our Step-By-Step Guide To Getting Shot By The Sartorialist

UPDATE: This story was originally published on July 13, 2009, and since then, the rules of street style have changed. And probably most dramatically for The Sartorialist. In fact, if you want to get shot by Mr. Schuman now, you've got to dial it WAY down...too many creative punches can work against you. But, in the spirit of Fashion Week, we've decided to resurrect an old favorite. Enjoy!
You know him. You love him. We do, too. But lest you think it's a snap getting expert Street Style lensman Scott Schuman of Sartorialist fame to spot you on the street, shoot you, AND post your pic on his site...well, think again. In fact, after perusing the past few months' worth of amazing street specimens preening for his expensive camera, we did pick up some interesting sartorial patterns at play. So, want a better shot at, well, getting shot by Scott? Here's our step-by-step guide to increasing the odds...and looking good doing it.
