I'm not a fan of facial hair nor wearing sunglasses indoors.

I'm not even looking for any hook ups, nor bars. Just need tips on how to blend in with the new DTLA scene. Maybe grab some 10$ organic juices and talk about buildings? I see the young lads these days enjoy taking selfies in the allies and doing rooftop profile pictures.
Just wondering, but is this an ironic thread or for real?

Why would you want to be a cardboard-cutout inch-deep persona of something?

Yeah, you could change clothes........

I miss the days when 20 somethings fixed up 60s and 50s cars, raced around dead mans curve, surfed, went to the drive in, went to the malt shop, and weren't limp wristed metros.

Hipsters are already 30-somethings with jobs and babies and houses in Echo Park. You're chasing an outdated dream.

I don't see too many of those hipsters owning million dollar homes unless their last name is Rothschild or Rockefeller. Maybe in inland empire

OP, I'm not sure what you mean when you say you want to be a DTLA hipster. Is this a different type of hipster from the ones in Silver Lake and Echo Park?

In all seriousness, just be yourself and don't try to fit some sort of mold. I read your post and originally thought it was a joke. It seems like you have a strong desire to "fit in" and be like those you see around you. Just do what makes you happy and have your own unique personality rather than succumb to fads and fleeting trends.

If you want to get a $10 organic juice, buy it because you like it, not just because other people are being sold an overpriced drink they feel they need to buy. I've been to Grand Central Market and I've seen all types of people. Not everyone is one of the hipster types you see hanging out at Eggslut or the organic juice stand.

Also, just because some self-absorbed guy thinks it's cool to take a selfie in a filthy DTLA alley doesn't mean you need to as well. Maybe that guy is a narcissistic, vapid idiot who should be doing more useful things with his time.

If you are a high cultured, sophisticated, and open minded individual, don't lower yourself to the lowest common denominator just because it's en vogue.
