    Agreed. I think color 8 with the light edge on PTBs, LWBs, and Barrie boots is an awesome combination. I love the look.

    Wish I could get my hands on #8PTB with the light edge. The Bureau (Belfast) has them, but they are too rich for me with the USD/GBP FX rate.

    ...and rode a singlespeed/fixed gear bike. I loved the douchebag part myself.

    Incidentally, don't hipsters wear Alden shoes now?

    could anyone post a fit pic of a #8 straight tip blucher (model 2160), preferably with jeans or casual pants? google image search turns up a pic of mac wearing some with corduroys that looks great, but would like another angle.

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

    Have you seen the one Leffot just got in? Not a huge fan of the crepe sole but easily changed after wearing it out. The shoe looks great in person and the whole Leffot team is top notch

    I'll be the first to admit that I'm a hipster (early 30s, hold a bachelor of fine arts, ride a track bike, drink PBR and bourbon, wear tight pants, romanticize living below my means, etc.) but I own color 8 Wingtip Boots with DARK edge trim/welting.

    Figure that one out.

    "Hipsters" seem to favor 403/405 Indy boots from what I can tell. Also suede chukkas (from Alden and other brands)

    Beckham is far from a hipster. Hipsters:

    I own the J Crew Indy (which I think look way better than the 405), Chukkas and #8 with antique welt. So it seems like I am in real trouble...

    I love when people post that flannel picture as though a scruffy appearance, plaid, and blue jeans hasn't been an element of almost every single youth culture since the sixties.

    'Hipster' looks have definitely changed over the years. I do not recall a time in the past where it was ever a 'lumberjack' look like it is today.

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

    The lumberjack look seems fairly recent.
