I photographed this young man in 1974 on Winthrop in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood. He was quite fashionably dressed for the standards of the era and place. Perhaps we was all dressed up to impress a new girlfriend. His outfit seems very dated almost 40 years later. Fashion is like that. What seems so cool at one point gets quickly dated. People use clothes to make a statement about the groups that they identify with. And this young man was definitely making a statement.
