    I've never been a hipster. My mankles have always been concealed from view, I've never worn ironic oversized glasses and my bikes have always had multiple gears.

    You're so a proto-hipster, you were hip before it was cool to be hip.

    I'm so ahead of the game that it'll be a few more years before the hip kids are walking around looking as effortlessly unstylish as me.

    The Lower East Side stopped being the Lower East Side decades ago.

    there are plenty of hipsters with full length keks and who don't wear non-prescription specs and who don't have single speeders. plenty.

    My fear is I may leap too far forward and move on to my next fashion tsunami which - because fashion is cyclical - may unfortunately appear similar to what the kids were wearing a few years ago.

    I wasn't actually providing the Ultimate Definition there, you know.

    I'm doing that this very minute. Pretty soon we'll all be wearing our grunge gear again.

    Long gone. Moved on to Billyburg in 2000 and now it's spreading through Greenpoint and Brooklyn like scoot-stick rocket, with the actual cool artists holed up out of their reach in Red Hook.

    Isn't Red Hook due a regeneration soon as well? Seem to remember reading about it a year or two ago. Williamsburg tho... I had to chuckle when I was there. The sheer effort these people have gone to to stand out, only to look so utterly cookie-cutter.

    They cost £12 from the Hipster Sealion Bucket store in BV, but you can get one from the Ghanaian shop two doors down for £2

    Thing with Red Hook is that it's still relatively hard to get to, making it out too much of a time commitment to the weekend club-hopping crowd. And there's not a lot of groovy shit there either.

    Soon they'll be making mockingly ironic songs about Brixton. :(

    Right. That could stem the tide I suppose.

    why is that so had to believe? Conde Nast is even swisher than Vogue

    Brixton might be a bit hip, but I've yet to see the Mayfair set slumming around BV.
