Hamil-Swag: Hip, Hip, Hipster Hamilton!

What is a hipster?

Urban Dictionary’s lengthy top definition of a hipster states in part:

Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20’s and 30’s that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. The greatest concentrations of hipsters can be found living in the Williamsburg, Wicker Park, and Mission District neighborhoods of major cosmopolitan centers such as New York, Chicago, and San Francisco respectively. Although “hipsterism” is really a state of mind,it is also often intertwined with distinct fashion sensibilities. Hipsters reject the culturally-ignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers, and are often be seen wearing vintage and thrift store inspired fashions, tight-fitting jeans, old-school sneakers, and sometimes thick rimmed glasses.

Founding Father Joy has a “Hamilton is Hip” mousepad available at Zazzle for $11.95 that portrays a scruffy Hamilton with hipster glasses.

There is also a “Hipster Hamilton” design (which I have previously featured as a t-shirt design) that is available as a mug for $16.95 from Zazzle.  The description states: “Hipster Hamilton loves tall boys, cloves, indie bands and all things hipster. He’s also on the $10 bill, but you’ve probably never heard of it.”

Instagram user fwacata shared this illustrated $10 bill featuring a bespectacled, scruffy Hamilton.

Interestingly (and I don’t know if there is a connection with our Hamilton), I just discovered Hamilton the Hipster Cat on the interweb!  He is a California rescue cat who just happens to have an adorable hipster mustache.

Hamil-Swag: iPhone 6 Covers

I recently upgraded my iPhone and switched over to the iPhone 6.  I previously had three different Hamilton-related covers for my iPhone 4S, but was on the hunt for something new.  Here are the contenders I looked at:

Red Bubble has an “Alexander Swagilton” cover featuring Hamilton in some impressive stunner shades, available for $25.  The description states: “Need I say more? The genius of finance comes all the way from St. Croix to hang out on your pillows, walls, and other swag-enabled places. Don’t tell Jefferson.”

They also have a “Ham the Man” design.  The description states: “Alexander Hamilton: financial whiz kid, self-explanatory.”

Ultimately, I chose this Hamilton watercolor portrait case, designed by Fabrizio Cassetta and available at Fine Art America  for $35.

Hamil-Swag: Christmas Ornaments

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to decorate for Christmas!  Here are some ideas to add some Hamilton swag to your tree this year:

(1) Glass-blown Hamilton ornament: In 1998, the Christopher Radko Company produced a glass-blown Hamilton ornament that is now available from resellers like eBay and Hand of Man.  The ornament was second in the Patriots series that the company created, and only 7,500 were made.
