a quick cultural note

Posted on April 26, 2009


So many danish hipsters somehow have managed to acquire thrift store Ts from small town america. “Fremont YMCA Youth Basketball” is currently sitting across the cafe from me. Though this is unsurprising (Copenhagen is an incredibly stylish city, and the Danes tend to follow trends to the absolute letter), I find it weird how what in the US is a kind of cheap, slightly ironic cultural recycling becomes a (probably expensive) cultural appropriation here. Shouldn’t they be wearing Danish little league t shirts?
