    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.

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

    I see the Meta - nerd trending a bit on tv and such. And I really feel for those girls with the chest tats which only serve to enrage parents and ruin a good set of t*ts.

    After getting the 60,000$ fine art degree, two grand + on ink is a cost to benefit decision that may not attract the best mate.

    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

    http://aheadlongdive.com/2010/11/01/alden-restoration-the-after/

    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.
