"Admit it, you've done this: You've stereotyped the mustachioed guy in thick-rimmed glasses as a "hipster," the girl in excessive black eyeliner as a "goth," the beefy guy in leather as a "biker." These terms are all admittedly obnoxious. But the fact that we often wear our social identity in our accessories speaks to the reality that cities are made up of myriad subcultures. Sociologists call them "urban tribes.""
