Alejandro Escovedo may well be one of the unsung heroes of great American singer-songwriters. But he doesn’t seem to care. Since the release of his stunning solo debut Gravity in 1992, the Texas-born troubadour has slowly built a body of work that has few parallels in American music — not to mention Latino roots music. Always the musicians’ musician, he can share the stage with Bruce Springsteen or Patti Smith on any given night, and then calmly return to his regular gigs in the honky-tonks of Austin.While continuing to produce impressive music, Escovedo has developed a dress code that can stand up to his songs. He has redefined what it means to be a Latino dandy, partnering a pair of cowboy boots with his distinctive silk scarfs, easily blending the rock and roll canon with his Mexican roots.Check out these photos to learn a thing or two about how to create your own brand of Latino style.
