Okay, where were we.....
There's a guy I see in the 'hood (the Mission District to be precise) who is always wearing a kippot. While that isn't that strange, he is also wearing payos (the curls that come down from the temples that Orthodox Jews wear). He however, doesn't wear the traditional Orthodox Black or anything else that normally comes with the Orthodox, just the kippot and the payos. I even saw him at the local coffee shop with a Power Puff Girl notebook.
Somehow, it works for him. Whether it's the context of where he's wearing it, or just the fact that he looks like the normal Mission rat except for the Jew stuff, he somehow pulls it off. He has managed to make the religious look hip. It's his thing. Some people in the Mission wear leather jackets (well, a lot do) and get tattoos. Some pearce God (or should I say G-D) knows what and grow dreads or dye their hair and protest everything under the sun. Not this guy- he wears the kippot and the payos.
Betcha it even helps him get laid
