OK next, what is Gorpcore?

I know…I had to ask my daughter to repeat herself when I first heard the name. Gorpcore.

Stands for Good Old Raisins Peanuts. Again, I know!  The name can also be interepreted as “the sound of crunching snow under your boots”.  IDK why, but I love that. And who thought of that??

Gorpcore is mostly an outerwear style. Evolving out of the outdoorsy vibe & lifestyle and dealing w the elements of nature… so tech fabrics, light weight jackets, layers, all sorts of hats & beanies, boots/hikers/good treads, crossbody bags.  Throw in a little fashion, creative layering, personal style and bam!  it is now it’s own fashion category >> Gorpcore.  I know!

Most of the mens street style pics above are all repping the Gorpcore vibe in one way or another.

There is also the term Gorpy, meaning cute/cool Gorpcore 🙂
