The Hipster Advantage

From AskMen:

"The whole hipster look -- and the look is about 90% of what a hipster is -- strikes us as a costume, a distraction from the truth that there is no deeper truth. A zebra acting like it's not a horse. Wyatt Earp wearing a handlebar moustache meant "don't f*ck with me, I'm a dangerous gunslinger." The silliness of the facial hair was counterweighted by the gravity of the dude. If Iggy Pop wants to wear skintight jeans, well, the man's earned it. When hipsters appropriate these bits of culture's past, it seems somehow goofy and cynical. We don't like it.

But a Better Man has to admit a good thing when he sees it, and hipsters sure know how to hang out and have a good time on the cheap -- this is mostly what they do, after all. We can get down with that, especially in times like this, when money's tight."
