Is it just me or does the sight of today’s army of bike riding hipsters transport you to simpler days gone by. Their precisely distressed work boots and cool tees (with sleeves rolled) send visions of hardworking blue collar guys marching off to respectable salaries and long days at the factories of old industrial America. Although the hipster lifestyle isn’t as bargain basement as it appears, the mentality of creative independent thinking combined with Made in America style evokes an awfully cool vibe. With the cold shoulder of self-righteousness aside, I dig their vintage.
Like the rise of the hipster, old school reproductions and industrial inspired pieces are making a blast from the past. Imagine mid-century modern, Restoration Hardware and your neighborhood consignment had a litter of puppies. Rustic metal and distressed wood are the star employees of the design factory. Whether you currently pay gentrifying rent in the hipster mecca (Williamsburg) or you just desire a little grit in your place…try infusing some vintage finds and looks into your place. Go ahead and even guzzle a few PBRs with your bros to salute this new American retro.
