The shadows on this image look like they are being reflected from some sort of blinds/windows. the fact that the photo is black and white it makes the shadows and light on the persons body stand out a lot more with a really good coordination of stripes.
Trying to fill in someone else's shoes is futile. The person will at best be a shadow of the one who shoes they are trying to fill. It is best to have new shoes (their own) rather than live in the shadow of another
