Forbes journalist Lauren Sherman wrote an interesting piece on the buying power of hipsters as seen by the booming sales of Urban Outfitters and the attendance of certain Fashion Week happenings. It's bit jumbled to us, the fact that trendsetters are described as those wearing stovepipe jeans and flannels and then everyone from Jefferson Hack to a person who shops at Urban Outfitters a la the mall are included in this grouping.

The Japanese retail climate is just as stifled as all of those Western brick and mortars but the company attributes the jump to an early drop in temperatures and their aggressive advertising strategies.
