Street Scenes: Auguste On Van Brunt

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's Street Scenes subject is Auguste, shot on Van Brunt Street near Fairway in Red Hook. Feel free to vote on whether you like or dislike his outfit below—your choices are 'Perfection!,' I feel strangely ambivalent about it,' or 'Who Did This To You.'

The essential details of Auguste's look are as follows: his pants are Banana Republic, his shoes are Varda, his coat is Utility Campus, and his hat is Gap (purchased about 20 years ago, though). Auguste's favorite store is the St. Mark's Bookshop.
