This young man was involved in three trends that intrigue me. He has a beard, a sort of "Al Qaeda" style beard that many, many people my age and younger have been wearing for a while now.
He is also wearing the military style cap that's been ubiquitous among the hip, for, again, some years now; I get a little uncomfortable when these caps always seem to be worn by the sort of people you wouldn't really imagine ever being in the military--an assumption on my part, and quite possibly wrong. But the combination of the militaristic hat and the un- (if not anti-) militaristic wearer looks uncomfortably like...mockery?
He is also, despite his youth (I'd guess 24-28), and his slight frame, sporting a potbelly.
Have you noticed this, too?
