Photographer Kevin Sinclair has captured this fun, retro-look spread called 'Shiny Happy People' for August Man magazine.

Featuring the pouty-lipped Felix Schopgens, the 'Shiny Happy People' spread may or may not have been influenced by the R.E.M song of the same name, but it sure does feel happy, with its colorful bursts of red and purple and, of course, its decidedly retro vibe. Schopgens models some charmingly printed pieces, including a houndstooth jacket and pant combo, a tropical-hued floral shirt and a pant with dark red swirls. In line with the colorful menswear direction for fall, a deep plum pantsuit and trench also make an appearance in this photo series.

The 'Shiny Happy People' August Man editorial features styling by Alex van der Steen, with hair by Lacy Redway.
