  • What does it mean for hipsterism when your look is easily and commonly obtained from high street stores? Full circle etc.

    I still find it confusing that your run-of-the-mill bunch of wahey lads that used to intimidate me is now a bunch of lads wearing plimsolls and skinny jeans. That used to be why you called me a bender!

    As soon as this happens, it is time to abandon ship I'm afraid. Over the years I have had to stop wearing, amongst other things,

    Trilby hats
    ripped jeans
    safety pins
    Mohican hair cut
    Converse trainers (I can still just about wear the plain black ones)
    tweed jackets
    Ray bans
    Parkers
    nipple rings
    stockings and suspenders
    mink coats
    my wife's head as a hat

  • hipster >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  • Those twats in the H&M fixie video aren't hipsters. The fact that that video exists proves that they aren't and the look isn't.

  • You've gotta go back a few pages to Schick's post before you find anything resembling a hipster in this thread.

    The writing's on the wall.

  • as long as you're not too hung up on it

    I see what you've dan there

  • You are a twat.

    NO, that helmet looks a twat!

  • Is there a big fixed gear "scene" in Indonesia? I've noticed more than a few random Indonesians pop up on here asking questions.

    Seems like an unusual place for it to take off.

    I got a PM the other day from one asking if my Pista Concept was still for sale

    The thread was from 2008!!

  • got arrospok?

    First lad's as indistinguishable from any other Joe de A'verage living beyond his means and the second's just another kid whose crime is to enjoy his bike as much as our first might, but spends as much wedge on tattoos and cheap scent as exhibit A does in the upwardly-mobile end of the high-street sales.

    Neither are riding at the moment their photos are taken, in fact they dare to pose, for which they're both damned to confuse one end of a torque wrench with a shaver in the eyes of those too quick to point and laugh at someone else who likes to ride. The names and faces thread may as well be transplanted over here wholesale if a superiority-complex means so much.

  • The first one is part of a fashion shoot for H&M. The point is moot, it's trivially twatty

    Why would anyone assume that you'd ever manage to sell anything?

    I think I've said it a couple of times in this thread, that a lot of the people who get derided as 'hipsters' in this thread are just young people having fun in the fashion of their time. There is definitely the odd fashion experiment that goes awry, but no worse than in our own photo albums from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s ... (delete as applicable).

    And you probably still can't tell how much someone enjoys riding a bike just from a picture. That is, unless the world has changed since I last checked.

  • Can I make a reasoned counterpoint, Oliver?

  • This thread is head to toe full of fuckwits.

  • Fashion moves so fast I've changed my mind now. They need to stop having fun until I get some, the insensitive toss-wagons.

  • This thread is head to toe full of fuckwits.

    Yeah, the posters are a bit like that.

  • Yeah, the poseurs are a bit like that.

    yeah... maggots.

    Exactly. They're called hipsters.

    I reserve the right to rip the piss out of all these johnny-come- lately, bearded, skinny-jeans wearing 'fixie' riders and food photographers. Just as I had the piss ripped out of me in my youth.
    I feel very lucky that digital cameras were not available to record my innumerable fashion faux pas of the 80s.

    Being uncool before it was cool to be uncool but nowadays being uncool isn't cool because its uncool?
