    no.
    the main thing that kept a lumbersexual and his cousin the hipster sailor from looking authentic is that he was simply too clean.

    these guys are wearing oversized fits that draw from sk8er and hip hop fashions, there’s no pretense of actual workwear here.

      Yeah but these heckers don’t sk8 or hip hop – it is just as try hard and cringe. The lack of authenticity is the cringe. They aren’t wearing this shit because it is their style. They are wearing it because it is the "the style" of the now.

      I went to a gallery opening last weekend and the amount heckers wearing carhartt and realtree was unsightly. It was a bunch of rich hecks or poor hecks pretending to be rich trying to look like the heckers I grew up with in redneck county but with their own *spin* on it.

      Mark my words, we will look back at this trend and find it as cringe as both OP and 2013 lumbersexual bearded hipster. For the exact reason it was cringe in 2013 is the exact same reason it is cringe now.

      A bunch of hecks with too much moony and too much time because they are uncreative lower to upper middle class 20-30ish somethings that work a job wear they do (in the grand scheme of things) absolutely nothing to do because they have no hobbies except drinking, drugs, and pretending to be interested in whatever this era’s civil rights movement but display in a manner that is lacking an true sense of awareness of the issue or their own place within it.

      If you are this person you are totally oblivious to it – exemple répondeurs *conseils fedora*

        stop caring so much about whether or not someone is "authentically" part of your gay little subculture. they can wear whatever they want, you giant, gay baby. so a kickflip btw

        you’re hung up on the carhartt jacket for some weird reason…

        the equivalent to "2013 lumberjack" is obviously gorpcore.

        your photo, on the other hand, just shows people wearing vintage clothes in a comically baggy fit–the 2013 equivalent of this would be ultra skinny fit. yes it will look dated, that’s why you should stick to straight/relaxed fit and avoid the extremes of any trend cycle

          no, gorpcore targets a leisure activity enjoyed mostly by the middle class, not a labor profession which requires more than a little fortitude.

          lumbersexuals bridged the class gap in-authentically.

        Good post. Honesty is important in clothing. gays who haven’t done a day of manual labor in their lives will look like larpers. As with military pieces, you might be able to get away with just having one piece of "workwear", and having durable high quality jeans is helpful even if you don’t get them for work. Just don’t put on the full hecking uniform

      >it’s ok for these nerds to dress like skaters even if they don’t skate
      they are too clean to be skaters, so they fail your standards as well.

      The main point of lumbersexuals and workwear soibois was the lack of authenticity and the caricature of an identity.

      So i’d say today’s equivalent is all those gays who wear varsity jackets. (yes some of these laggards still exist in 2010+14).

        I don’t know anyone who actually wears carhart in manual labor jobs outside of maybe overalls.
        No one is wearing carhart pants or jackets to a construction site.
        It’s not work wear.
        That’s like saying RM Williams formal line is farmer clothes.

          not the jackets but most manual workers i know wear carhartt pants pretty often. the double knees are very sturdy and pretty cheap

          I’ve noticed this as well at work and other jobs. I’ve never really seen carhartt worn by anyone at work. Everyone usually has a hoodie or some other jacket their wife got them. But when i worked at a cozy warehouse for some extra money. Almost all the zoomers wore carhartt jackets. I feel they got carhartt for their first “tough” job to feel like some tough blue collar guy when its just a warehouse job

            here in the PNW, it’s dickies and carhartt, carhartt and dickies.
            every Walmart/Fred Meyer/Costco with a clothing section has tons, as does every thriftstore.

            maybe it’s a regional thing.

          i see carhartt and dickies more than anything but carhartt has fallen out of favor. the normie perspective is they don’t like that its become fashionable, noticed a quality decline and price hike and recent changes to some of their favorites.

          LMAO you’re an idiot. People aren’t throwing away their decade old jackets because people they don’t know exist and likely don’t even speak their language make posts on a social media platform they don’t go to.

          Absolutely delusional.

    in terms of its place in culture i would say yes, but this looks a lot better. even if it’s a bit corny there’s attention paid to color, cut, quality of materials, etc. that was never present for lumbersexuals

    No one is larping as a construction worker
    They are simply well made clothes that look good in a period where it’s hard to find clothes that aren’t fast fashion trash that fall apart after 3 washes

    note to zoomers, hipsters and emo kids wore skinny jeans. Hip hoppers wore baggy pants.
    Whatever this is is new, and not hipster, the hipster is dead

    actually a good example, the guy i used to do roofs with had a vintage carhartt detroit jacket ever since i knew him. truck got broken into, jacket got stolen and bought a new one. hardly see him wear the new one anymore. i might put out the feelers and see if he wants a wip one for his bday, isn’t it closer to the vintage ones?

      Upper middle class yuppie spawn hipsters with menstrual studies post-postmodern gay arts degrees are now breaking into blue collars’ trucks just to steal old dirty clothes so it doesn’t look like “they bought their personality off a shelf.” Things have officially gone too far. This trends to be stopped at any cost.
