Anyway from time to time The Miz and I insult each other by calling out things we do that make us lean to the hipster side of the spectrum. Just like with anything in life, hipster is a scale. 100 being total hipster and 1 being ghetto? I've never totally figured what is on the other end. Just imagine it's the opposite of hipster.
The reason I bring this up is because it seems as of late I've been leaning more and more to the hipster side of things and that's not ok with me. So I'm going to point out why and see if that helps anything.
So welcome to Hipster Tendencies.
My first entry is my new found love of raw denim jeans. I can't really pin point how this all started. It could be that my girlfriend #BHDC, against my best efforts, has made me care about the clothes I wear. It could be that I now have money to buy clothes from places that aren't Kohls or Footlocker. It could also be that I've embraced working out over the last year and want clothes that show of what has been called a very cute butt.
More than likely I think it's this line from this overall awesome G-Eazy song. I think it's probably that. You should probably listen to the whole song now to also appreciate how good it is.
And the brand I wear is Naked & Famous. They have excessive styles like these jeans that are so heavy they can stand on their own or these that change color but that's too much for me. Light blue jeans? Come on now. They do however have these that have a thread count up to 240 which I do own. And they are my favorite. They are the softest jeans I have ever had. The thread count is 240 for Christ sake!
(I have no idea what thread count means.)
(Just looked it up now I do.)
I like that the owner is kind of a weird guy who's also kind of a nerd. I like that they make their jeans in an authentic way. I like that they care so much about what they're interested in.
I like that I feel cool when I wear them. It's the first piece of clothes I really ever wore for style. And goddammit they fit so perfectly.
But thank God I am not that guy. If I ever become that guy please slap me. Yes the jeans might be a little hipster but clearly I am not as hipster as I could be.
I guess this is a cautionary tale?
