Average coffee shop barista hipster wears a tshirt and jeans and talks about the terroir of Ethiopian vs Costa Rican coffee. Or Belgian vs German beer.

There are other fashion conscious hipsters who take time coordinating their outfits. But not all are like this.

I live near hipster central in Oakland and work in downtown SF on occasion it is hipster central around here.


On an autocorrecting iDevice.
That's a good dissection.

I don't mind metro as long as the guy doesn't take longer to get ready than I do. An ex-boyfriend of mine would notice if I changed my nail polish by half a shade... That creeped me out.

The hipster thing is just annoying. Skin-tight pants, goofy glasses, mustaches... Spare me. I like manly men. Hipster just does not say "manly" to me.

LOL! That's what I am talking about. A man who is metro and obsessing about your looks would be both creepy and annoying. I wouldn't stand for it actually.

The hipster thing is annoying because it's so pretentious.

LOL--one of my hobbies is to visit cafes throughout Chicago. That is Ground Zero for hipsters. The huge black-rimmed glasses? Check. Skinny jeans or bike knickers? Check. Converse high-tops? Check. Too-cool-for-the-room 'tude? Check!

Any thoughts on men going for the summer sockless look (with leather loafers or dress shoes) straight out of GQ?
