I live in Brooklyn, where the hipster man originated and went on to become a marketing phenomenon around the globe (French department store Le Bon Marché launched a Brooklyn exhibition this fall). The concept of the hipster may be a bit of a cliche now, but as Brooklyn moves on, I see a lot of men who continue to inspire. Here are some gifts to consider for the evolving man.
