Alright hipsters, according to the New York Times, the monocle is making a comeback.  Hardcore hipsters are giving up the super-thick glasses and switching to wearing just one lens attached to a string.  They're even getting prescription monocles, so they're not just for show.

A British trend expert says the monocle is coming back thanks to a subset of hipsters he calls, "the new gents".  They also wear things like tweed blazers.

So, is it hip?  Or does it look like you're just trying to be Mr. Peanut?
