If this is a regular custom field, use get_post_meta():

$classes = get_post_meta( $attachment_id, 'name_of_the_field', TRUE );

attachment is just another post type, regarding to meta data, it works like regular posts or pages.

  • Here is the field <input type="text" class="text" id="attachments-28-classes" name="attachments[28][classes]" value="">

  • That’s just the name in the HTML form, it doesn’t tell you what name is used in the database. This is why I asked for that in my comment.
