Adjectives

3 May 2013

Every adjective used to describe retail employees in the Times’ most recent foray into Brooklyn:

“freckled, young”
“grizzled, older”
“hirsute, Mediterranean-looking”
“scruffy, ponytailed […] sweet-tempered”
“affable, heavily tattooed”
“sweet, languourous, British”
“calm, bespectacled”

Hipsters—who I don’t, for the record, believe actually exist—can be distinguished by: hair; synonym for “nonthreatening”.
