Of the millions of paparazzi-esque street style blogs on rotation in our RSS feed, photographer William Gentle aka Backyard Bill stands out as a man who likes to take his time. He hones in on just one smartly dressed guy or girl at a time, snapping them in pieces from their own wardrobe, on their own turf, and leaving each of his subjects with a beautifully executed fashion shoot of their very own. To top it off, each one of Bill’s pretty young things fills out a charmingly concise questionnaire. We've been hooked for a minute now, and recently Bill got familiar with extended FADER fam Mister Mort, resulting in an explosion of polka dot bowties, technicolored plaids—and the hats, oh the hats!
