April 10th-18th was Austin fashion week. I went to the kick off party downtown at Speakeasy, which is where I spotted Scott. There were some interesting outfits to be seen, but none that topped his. He really stood out from the crowd, so I kept seeing him throughout the night. Finally, as my friends and I were getting ready to leave, I mustered up the courage to approach him about his outfit. I realize that Scott’s outfit may be a bit daring for some people, but we can all take inspiration from his use of color, texture, and all around cohesive look.

Meet Scott

Scott is an artist and graphic designer who runs a media co-op. He has designed for a variety of companies ranging from small ones such as The Thirsty Nickel on 6th street all the way up to companies as large as Nike. Scott is also an activist for several veterans and patients groups, cancer fundraising, and medical cannabis awareness. He donates as much artwork as he possibly can each year.

About the Outfit

The designer of Scott’s “Scotty-Hendrix Jacket” (as he called it) was Austin designer, James Volkema. It was inspired by Jimi Hendrix’s Hussars Military Jacket. However, Scott wanted this jacket to also reflect his own personal style. He sent James a few sketches and eventually this work of art was born. The medals on Scott’s jacket are actual military medals that he was awarded by the U.S. Navy and the Department of Defense.   He was in a helicopter squadron that participated in the war on drugs back in the early 90s. On the opposite side is a green ribbon in honor of all of those who lost their freedom or lives in the war on drugs, along with a Texas NORML (of which he is the current Art Director and board member) lapel pin to show his support for the legalization of cannabis and hemp.

Scott’s shirt was custom made for him by Dave Dingman, owner of 3DTprinting here in Austin. A dye-sublimation technique that never fades was used for the image on the shirt. The image is Scott’s AFW Mash-up Team: Infusion Nation. His hat was purchased in Mexico during one of his many trips there, and his pants are military issue BDU pants.
