A true hipster scours Goodwill racks for something quirky and ironic that vaguely fits them. For the lazy hipster, there’s always Urban Outfitters. UO has some obvious, ridiculous problems—what with its throwing out bags of destroyed, unused clothing, Republican-lovin’ president, and stealing of artist’s ideas. Then there are long-term sustainability issues that arise from mass-made, fake kitsch and shoddy vintage knockoffs.
