OWS’s Hipster Cop Would Prefer If You Called Him “The Gentleman Officer”
We tracked down the fashionable detective who’s essentially neutering more important media coverage of Occupy Wall Street with his meticulously disheveled locks and wry smile. He’s just too damn fun to resist.
GQ: How would you describe your style?  Rick Lee: I describe it as “traditional English country.”  I love  traditional English country clothes.
GQ: It’s funny because you’ve been anointed “Hipster Cop” now, but  looking at all your pictures—I’m not sure that’s the right descriptor.  Rick Lee: I agree! I don’t have a beard. I don’t live in  Williamsburg. Though off-duty I may look a little bit more hipster. I’m  thin, so when I’m off-duty I like skinny jeans. And, well, I have about  five pairs of Converse sneakers, but I’ve been wearing Converse sneakers  since I was in junior high school. I’ve always worn Converse sneakers,  they’re not just a fashion trend with me. I’ve always liked them. So off  duty, I throw on skinny jeans, a T-shirt, and a cardigan. I guess you  could say I look more hipster on the weekend. Or in the summer, I’ll  wear my jeans cuffed, with wingtip shoes and a t-shirt and a vest.  Unfortunately, I can’t wear jeans to work.
GQ: So there’s a detective dress code? That is not what cop shows  would have me believe.  Rick Lee: Yes, unfortunately. The police commissioner might get mad  if I wear jeans.
GQ: If “Hipster Cop” is inaccurate, what new fun cop moniker should  we use?  Rick Lee: Uh…”Country Gentleman.” Or the “Gentleman Police  Officer.”
