A family barbecue ended in embarrassment for local hipster Edwardino on Sunday, when distinctly un-hip Uncle George rocked up in an almost identical outfit.
Edwardino, who runs a popular pop-up vintage cufflink dispensary in a decommissioned Newtown bus-stop, said the fashion faux-pas was totally unexpected.
“I went to a lot of trouble to select my outfit; I chose a retro orange paisley shirt I found in an upcycled fashion boutique that my friend runs out of a restored Kombi van.”
“Then I paired it with some super-expensive pre-stressed jeans I imported myself, a pair of rare 1980s Vans and a belt featuring a really ironic buckle. I have no idea what happened, but somehow George had exactly the same outfit, but he wasn’t even wearing it ironically.”
” How can he even afford it? The jeans alone cost over $380. I could feel my cred draining as soon as he arrived, so I just pretended I felt sick and got out of there as fast as the Vespa could go.”
George, 57, said he didn’t know what the big deal was.
“No idea mate, I rock up and next thing I know young Ed’s buggered off ‘cause he was feeling crook or something. I dunno. If we were wearing the same clothes it’s got nothing to do with me.”
“I’m almost broke at the moment so I just went and grabbed something from the Salvos; I guess Ed’s skint too, poor bugger. On Monday I’ll ask the boss if there’s any work for him at the wrecking yard”.
