Growing up in south philadelphia in the early 80's ,this term would have been used in the ghetto for any old raggedy ass,nasty,beat up shit kicker that all of the school kids would have accused your mother of buying at the salvation army,but usually of the chuckie's variety,YOU KNOW short top with rubber tip.They were often found hanging ,like christmas ornaments from every telephone line.Those were'nt cool then,during the pre hipster era,it was shell top and gazzelle's,naw meen?Oh and just an FYI, in those days,the salvation had underware bins.For real.

Short for "bourgeois bohemian" in fact another form of poser... pretending "acting" to be a dirtbag or grunge type, often in ski towns or outdoors activities areas - climbing, wind-surfing, kayaking, etc ... being the most hip, non-capitalist, vegan, supporter of causes. Often found in the hippest places in Latin America, Palestine, Africa, acting like the locals. When they are out of money and when the going gets rough they do not sell their truck or pawn their skis but go to the bank, discretely find their credit card or have their parents bail them out, supply an airline ticket or hospital bill. A covert "trustafarian"
