We at Cultist must confess a certain fondness for Urban Outfitters, purveyors of ironic tees, man-repelling women's attire, and hipster gadgets of all sorts. There's something comforting and innocent about the atmosphere inside the store, like being wrapped in a warm blanket of nonchalance and idealism.
Apparently, New England Patriots wide receiver and Miami Beach Senior High School football alum Chad Ochocinco agrees. When a fan on Twitter asked him for advice on where to shop while visiting Miami, @ochocinco responded with his top two choices: Urban Outfitters and H&M.
When we saw that tweet, the fact that the nearest H&M is in Palm Beach Gardens was the furthest thing from our minds -- pushed out by a barrage of imagined fashion scenarios for the famed player. Does Chad have a collection of ironic glasses with plastic lenses? Does he carry a flask screenprinted with a mustache? Is his bookshelf filled with copies of The Hipster Handbook and Hot Guys and Baby Animals?
Sadly, we don't know. But we can imagine what he'd look like if he did. We've gotta admit it -- we were skeptical at first, but the man makes it work.
