Only the best things can be said about photographer William Gentle and his website Backyard Bill. The site is described as “stylish folks in their own clothes,” and features striking portraiture of good looking people with excellent personal style. It’s The Sartorialist without all the fashion editors and bokeh. It’s The Selby, but just about the clothes. Color me obsessed. Backyard Bill

oh no. I predict much time traveling done on this site…I’ll click on it and next thing I know, I will be hours into the future.
Not a bad site. Good photography. I don’t really agree though that the site features good looking people with excellent personal style. Most of the subjects look like they purchased their outfits from the Just for Hipsters catalog. The earlier posts are better than the newer posts in that regard.
It’s really too bad the site is only updated every few weeks.
Deep down I’m just a wanna be hipster â€” I thought that is obvious.
Check out Fanny’s site. I just spent about an hour there.
i wanna be a hipster too.
Hipsters have infested my neighborhood. The first beard and dirty tee shirt sighting a couple of years ago was a sign of impending doom.
From one wannabe hipster to another…GREAT FIND.
this is an absolute gem. also, i am incredibly fond of that gent’s 1930’s looking frames.
If I had to guess I would say those glasses are via Anglo American.
i think i’m in love with nasrin. jesus.
I was hoping it wasn’t true, Mike. Doesn’t make you a bad person though.
Any guess on what kind of jeans the man on the train tracks is rocking?
someone has a great eye.
Well there goes another three hours. Every time I come here I find another thing worth following…which means that in a year’s time I will need an extra year to keep track of it all.
Bill and Fanny rocks!!!
I believe those jeans are made by Bugle Boy.
Awesome. A bunch of people better looking than me and better dressed. Sweet, thanks MDub, really, thanks for the boost.
The glasses look Moscot Miltzens to me, but I could be wrong. I’m in Chicago, though, so I’ll try to swing by Anglo American soon–they look interesting.
Legendary Work. Total Class! Photography is ‘Double Glazing’
I love this!!! Great photography, and excellent clothing. I really like how it has that 1930’s work look. Oh and I definitely love the blond guy’s style(my exact style preference).
