The Suburban Hypebeast: A New Breed of Hoodlum

Over the past two years, I’ve noticed a new trend in my neck of the woods. Those little obnoxious teenagers that everyone loves so much have been changing and mutating. These kids used to wear $10 ironic shirts they got at Target and a sports hat. Now all of a sudden, they’re wearing shirts and snapbacks from Obey, Supreme, Diamond Supply, Crooks & Castles, and all sorts of other streetwear brands. Where did that come from? Where are kids seeing this stuff that makes them want to buy it? And where the hell are they getting the money for all this gear?

Congrats, kid. Your mom bought you a G-Shock. Now get the fuck off my lawn.
