    "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:

    that top picture just makes all flannel wearers appear to be 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.

    Ok, so let me get this straight, Hipsters are lumberjacks.

    Those jeans aren't nearly tight enough to portray real hipsters.
