Have you been toting middle school-style all summer?


Backpacks showed up on several of the men’s Spring ‘10 runways — a good harbinger of trends to come, alongside the fact that I’ve been seeing hipster kids on the Lower East Side toting middle school-style all summer.

"How many people out here wear backpacks? The first thing I noticed when I pulled into town today. One out of every two goddamned people had a backpack. Where are they going? What do you need a backpack for? Everyone in this town is in transit, wandering through town? There is a man after my own heart. He's got a backpack. This song is dedicated to backpacks because they look so goddamned cool, I can't believe it."
