Figure that one out.

Here is an interesting fact the terms hippie and beatnik were both coined by Herb Caen a columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle . When I was going to college in the early 70s I hung with a group of vietnam vet hippies living off the GI bill .We would gather every morning at the student union and reading Herb Caen was a required ritual . He was quite a character

So a google of Alden and Hipster turned up this




Interesting to me I have never seen Alden restoration oil lock leather. 


I would not doubt this blogger has been to this thread.



Ps my favorite hipster are Mumford hipsters and the Steampunk victorian era kind, not the steampunk future in space types.


Also the 1940's pin-up models female hipster. Out here in the rural Boroughs it's a rare sight

Kerouac is the best known beatnik - I think he is not very hipster to todays standard, but hipsters love his message.

meh.  the term 'hipster', or at least it's use as a derogatory term says more about the person that uses it than it says about the person it is directed at.

You have got to be kidding. Is there any universe in any dimension when any of that could be remotely appealing or desirable?

Never have I been so pleased to be old and out of it!

The character Cosmo Kramer on Seinfeld was described as a " dufus hipster" iirc by Jerry

"hipster dufus"

and the term hipster is so overused it has lost all meaning.

that flannel pic posted by MH only reminds me of SW&D circa 2006

can we get back to posting shoes and calling everyone uncles and nephews and neglecting to use the spoiler tags

It was things like greased back hair and black leather jackets, then later, bell bottoms and long hair. 

The lumberjack look seems fairly recent. 

You guys ever hear of grunge?

anecdotal evidence on the aberdeen i've seen - wider heel and narrow toe box... correct? 9D plaza = 9D aberdeen?

the #8 straight tip is an alden classic. this shoe is on the Aberdeen last. I have worn it in the last 60 days wearing bills khakis
