    I still wear that kind of stuff, from the braces of several different colours, dress shirts, waistcoats, and ties, down to the slim fit or straight fit trousers and rather short shorts by 2000s standards, even now. I often wear chukkas, such as desert boots, and occasionally, I even wear a moderately-brimmed fedora made of fur felt or straw, and I also don a wool newsboy cap. More casually, I tend to wear cuffed dark wash, seldom rinsed, or even unrinsed jeans in a slim-straight or straight fit, often paired with an earlier 20th century style work shirt made of chambray. While I have had a pompadour hairstyle, at times, I usually wear it combed more flatly and wavy across the forehead as a fringe or with a parting. I never had a tall beard or long moustache, though.

    i guess i was vaguely hipster back in the day.
    i bought a brown carhartt wip anglistic sweater the other day.
    i wanted one like 12 years ago but didn’t cop. then watched for a few years and they never seemed to sell brown ones while i was watching them.
    i still have a brown dickies chore coat with a corduroy collar that i might wear a bit this year.
    i used to have a carhartt one but it didn’t fit right so i sold it.
    my go-to coat this winter will be a barbour beaufort.

      dunno about the gender-bending. as i see it that is not a millennial thing.
      polyamory stuff? yeah, i can definitely see hipsters watching dudes heck their nasty women in front of them.

    Actually good question.
    Also, am I the only one that feels strange that this is no longer a trend? Where does time even go, man.

    from what I’ve seen, Current Year hipsters like workwear that they’d never do any actual work in. it’s either that or some wigger shit. anything to get attention.

      i don’t think workwear was ever seen as attention getting.
      workwear and heritage were like a response to the wigger and athletic apparel stuff that came before that.
      they both play on masculine ways of seeing clothes.
      ie. getting something that lasts because you don’t want to throw your money away.
      (even if this is exploited to make them spend more money on shit, not less).

      workwear is not flashy. unless it’s literally hi-vis.

        I work a trade job and can’t imagine why anyone would want to dress this way by choice. Maybe there’s a love for the fabric, but choosing to walk around in heavy ass fabrics while in an office setting is silly. Workwear has also been around since before hipster/menswear took off, maybe it was a natural progression for hipsters who actually enjoyed fashion and found workwear simple and comfortable enough to settle at.

          the idea is make plebs buy shit. you can only make them buy the same shit for a finite amount of time. because once they have a closet full of skinny jeans then they don’t need more skinny jeans.
          so at that point your market the slims or the straights or something else.
          back in hipster times there were lots of heritage brands that were near-on broke because no one had been buying much of their shit for decades. so at that point italian companies bought half of them and pumped them up to be the new thing.
          they could be had cheaply because they were in a slump and they could be sold, if marketed, because no one had much of that stuff at the time.

            piss off, dickhead.
            companies need to stay in business. that means they need you to buy their things.
            if you already have all the things they sell then you’re probably not coming back and they’re probably going bankrupt.
            this is the whole purpose of fashion trends.

            Ahh you’re on to something, I just remembered I got my hair cut by these types around 13yrs ago. One guy was even featured in backyardbill, anyone remember that website?

          there’s brands that use heavy fabrics and brands that cater to reproducing the actual old pre-war style of workwear. which was all light weight fabrics by today’s standards.

          a properly fitted type iii jacket and a well fitting pair of straight cut jeans might be the single most comfortable outfit to wear other than a proper suit, if you’re not fat. idk what to tell you man its a masculine way to dress that shows off my physique. i wear shapeless trendy clothes too when i don’t want to be noticed. like if i’m going to the grocery store and don’t want to do my hair or something. i remodel houses.

          the history of its revival isn’t mysterious or anything.

          >office setting
          these people are usually bartenders

          yes hipsters were working class. the subculture got adopted by trust fund babies (and also gays) towards the end but hipster culture was defined by a bunch of working class white guys trying to look nice and return to elements of traditional masculinity in its beginnings.

          What are they wearing now?

          they’re all wearing dad jeans and have families now. you can go on reddit mfa and such and just look at the profiles of the long time posters. literally all of these dudes got married and have kids while you laughed along with your favorite late night talk show host with all their hipster jokes. it was the 2010’s version of karen. a thinly veiled slur hebrews could use to denigrate whites. i fell for it and made fun of them a lot too but looking back on it they were a lot more based than you & i.

          hipsterism was the last explicitly white subculture and massively gentrified some of the most diverse areas of major cities, anyone on the right who b***hes about them is stupid

          yup scene & emos then hipsters were the last implicitly white subcultures.

    Drake’s, Anglo-Italian, Berg & Berg, Rubato, Casatlantic…
    Basically a mix of soft tailoring and workwear, with more generous shapes.
    Also vintage watches.

        I dunno, zoomers are way more into trooning and crossdressing than hipster-era millennials.

          You obviously had no experience with actual hipsters, you seem to have it confused with the reddit rawdenim sub or something. Hipsters were cunty and exclusive, much more than you are.

            This. It was generally an insult towards white teens/young adults who had money. They turned an industrial district in my city into exclusive condos that are mid 400s now.

      It was the last fashion trend to hit before the fashion industry started uptaking rappers as "designers" and brand ambassadors. They realized why bother putting in effort, we can hire Virgil Abloh to put some corny label on deadstock items and make $5,999% profit because everyone worships him for being "Black."
