    A company of porcupines crowded themselves very close together one cold winter’s day so as to profit by one another’s warmth and so save themselves from being frozen to death. But soon they felt one another’s quills, which induced them to separate again. And now, when the need for warmth brought them nearer together again, the second evil arose once more. So that they were driven backwards and forwards from one trouble to the other, until they had discovered a mean distance at which they could most tolerably exist. — Arthur Schopenhauer, Parerga und Paralipomena, II. Teil, XXXI., “Gleichnisse und Parabeln”

    (As quoted in Sigmund Freud, Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego)

    And then re-quoted from Zizek's article on hipsters.

    Probably a more relevant metaphor for your adolescence/college existence!



    The point was that you could look like a full skeleton!

    I once owned this. Go look at the third and fourth images in the "detail views" section to see the main reason why I owned it. :facepalm:

    I went to UO in London and they were selling APCs, I could probably buy my whole wardrobe at UO. Maybe the american ones are worse.

    I'm calling bullshit on this. They sell Gant Rugger, Alt A, APC Madras, and Filson. They also sell a bunch of inoffensive basics - I really like the BDG tri-blend tanks, for example, and some of the underwear is decent.

    Sure, the atmosphere in the stores is try-hard and terrible, but I'd still rather hear Deerhunter coming out of the speakers in the store than Kesha or some shit like that.

    idk maybe the providence one is unusually bad, but I looked hard for anything worth buying (read they had begun selling some better stuff) and didn't see a single piece of cant, filson, apc, or anything like that. almost everything was bdg or other random labels I've never heard of. maybe I missed it but I didn't see anything I would ever buy. and believe me, I'm not one to hate stuff just because it's cheap. if lec fit better and had xs I could see myself wearing a lot of their stuff, uo just felt so lame :shrug:

    +1.

    I'm about as close as you can get to "actual" hipsterdom (roommates in a shitty urban neighborhood, bicycle, artist, music buff/snob, tattoos) and its no different from what mikey describes.

    Providence and Cleveland must have that in common, 'cause UO really sucks. Best thing in the whole store was there selection of Levis.

    Kitsune is primarily a record label.

    You're a sucker if tabbed browsing isn't your default
