As if the skinny jeans and beard transplants weren’t enough, now comes word, from The New York Times no less, that monocles are making a comeback. Guys, the Times is ON IT, and it’s those crazy hipsters again that are leading the trend, according to the Grey Lady.
I can say with confidence I’ve never seen someone wearing one that wasn’t part of a larger costume. But yet it’s a trend that I’m woefully unaware of, until this article. Thank you to The New York Times for enlightening me on such an under-reported trend. But as Time magazine reports, this isn’t necessarily a new trend – according to them, hipsters have always worn it. Way to keep up, New York Times!
