Huffington Post Cameo!

No comments

My article on East Coast versus West Coast hipster fashion got referenced in an article on hipsters in the Huffington Post! Kinda cool.

“The Hipster Handbook” describes young urbanites with “mop-top haircuts, swinging retro pocketbooks, talking on cell phones, smoking European cigarettes … strutting in platform shoes with a biography of Che Guevara sticking out of their bags.”

Similarly, Time offered this description: “take your grandmother’s sweater and Bob Dylan’s Wayfarers, add jean shorts, Converse All-Stars and a can of Pabst and bam — hipster.”

And as sites like Pop Break have pointed out, the term means different things in different regions of the country. The difference between East and West Coast hipsters, for example, has been a common source of debate.
