The Tweed Run


The Tweed riders came through last Sunday.
People started doing this in DC a few years ago.  The Washington post wrote an interesting article about it in 2009.

You dress to find your social clique in D.C., from Georgetown preppy to hipster central along 14th Street and H Street.

This city is always about being taken seriously.

Another hipster stab at spontaneous coordination, flash-mob conformity in the name of pretentious originality? The motive, the purpose, the paradox of it all — such cogitation furrows one’s brow, dislodges one’s monocle. Zounds.

The whole idea of a dandy goes beyond fashion, and it’s about being smart and thoughtful and intellectual and well-read, and I think that totally appeals to men in Washington.

The original Tweed Run started in London.
