You know you’re hipster if you get off to the American Apparel website ads.

The Paradox of Hipsterdom

No man ever stood the lower in my estimation for having a patch in his clothes; yet I am sure that there is greater anxiety, commonly, to have fashionable, or at least clean and unpatched clothes, than to have a sound conscience…I sometimes try my acquaintances by such tests as this;—who could wear a patch, or two extra seams only, over the knee? Most behave as if they believed that their prospects for life would be ruined if they should do it. It would be easier for them to hobble to town with a broken leg than with a broken pantaloon.

It is an interesting question how far men would retain their relative rank if they were divested of their clothes. Could you, in such a case, tell surely of any company of civilized men, which belonged to the most respected class?

I say, beware of all enterprises that require new clothes…

We worship not the Graces, nor the Parcae, but Fashion. She spins and weaves and cuts with full authority. The head monkey at Paris puts on a traveller’s cap, and all the monkeys in America do the same.

— Henry David Thoreau, Walden

I can never get this hipster fashion thing down…

my clothes scream too little 1980s “I don’t give a fuck” and too much 1950s “Can I get an eggcream, please?”

The news is so mainstream

News? I don’t watch the news. I mean, I keep up on current events… but only with a healthy dose of satire. Thank you, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.
