Those people you saw are not hipsters, you know. They're pretentious office dorks; a hipster will not be caught dead at Ikea, and certainly not wearing the oh-so-five-years-ago black-framed glasses. Hipsters buy retro 1970s stuff from used furniture stores. And their glasses have grey, brushed-titanium frames. Time to get out more, 3H.
desruges - im nto sure what füis sweedish for but when i gougaled it i gota buncha hits in waht i thikn was iclandic. they use eth still right?
now as for the hisptars filve yers ago is stil a few years ahead of teh cruve by my standrads.
I have a German friend living here in 'Merica, and he loves to sport his black leather pants on nights out at the pub. Last week, a German woman came for a job talk on my campus, and her idea of business fashion cool was leather pants, a black turtleneck, and a grey blazer. She might have been a lesbian, tho'.
At any rate, the Eighties are not over in Germany. In fact, they're still all the rage.
I had almost completed adding umlauts to all of the vowels on their furniture department signs, when they kicked me out without even thanking me.
