Hipster Cop, Exposed. The short mystery of “Hipster Cop”, aka Det. Rick Lee, flooded the internet last week. I suppose the stereotype of cops as sloppy, donut-eating, mace-spraying types prevented some folksfrom imagining that someone living in New York City who also likes fashion and ties would want a job in the NYPD. GQ is the latest to interview Lee, who told the magazine he prefers to define his style as “Country Gentleman.” Also, his best friend works at Ralph Lauren, which explains a lot of RL in his wardrobe. Is he getting a discount on these rags? Possible NYPD kickbacks from a store? There’s the story, everybody. Not his fancy glasses!
