Hipster Hat - by Alexa Ludeman
Vancouver is full of hipsters; you know, tall guys in skinny jeans who have no bums, and ladies in with carefully mussed up hair, oversized glasses, and curious ill-fitting wool jackets that look like they’re from Salvation Army but are really from Banana Republic. And don’t overlook the odd mash-up of different prints, and carefully the coordinated yet clashing colours.
