He has no social media accounts, and the very fact that he prefers to keep his personal matters away from the public eye, makes it difficult to find out about his life, however, here are some interesting facts.
Early life and education

Scott’s most notable achievement with this brand, is a collaboration with the fast-food chain Chipotle, for whom he made uniforms, and since they were a hit, other partnerships with like-minded brands soon followed, and today Loomstate designs outfits for thousands of workers around the US.
