Hipster...err Wicker Park, Pilsen and South University Village I take it? Oh and I guess you hang around Columbia College too..... D:
LOL! I was posting from Pilsen when I wrote that but that's not bad. I love Pilsen, actually. I would say the "worst" areas for hipsters are Ukranian Village (Star Lounge was lousy with them when I went there several times) and Wicker Park/Bucktown and Logan Square.

Many of the hipsters I see are not metro at all. The ride fixie's and drink beer. Maybe if they go crazy the spend a little bit of time on facial hair.

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.

Thanks for your post the 2 aren't equal. When first seeing the two joined I wondered about it. I've always thought my son was metrosexual, but, not at all hipster.

A friend I would have always called metro now proclaims himself a hipster too.

I don't have anything against men who are cool dressers. I think John Lennon and George Harrison were cool dressers, along with Keith Richards during the '60s.

I am not into polo shirts and fancy jeans for men. And guys who wear button-down shirts, even during leisure time, remind me of Jehovah's Witnesses or Mormons.

My husband wear button down shirts all the time for working around the house, casual settings or working and he is not even close to either of the above. My Grandfather also wore button down shirts as do most of the men I know.

Eh people love to hate hipsters but I don't hear them complain when hipsters move into a new area, revive the neighborhood, and increase property values.

I like the whole chinos (not when it's rolled up) and button-up shirts look, I think it looks polished.

The self-entitlement attitude, the overdoing of the hipsterness (ie. big non-prescription glasses, wearing sweaters that looks like it belongs to my grandpa, wearing pants that show off their ankles - they're not shorts, just pants that have been rolled up)... NO THANKS!

Those plastic glasses that are bright colors and the rolled up skinny jeans? Yup.
