    They really only look good on extremely petite as well as skinny girls. Not men (or should I say boys? ), and not anyone over about 100 lbs, usually. or anyone with any muscles in their legs. imo.

    I'm not overweight but I have thick calves and thighs so skinny jeans not only look silly on me but are also uncomfortable. So it's annoying that they're so popular in the stores I tend to shop in. The "distressed" look, too - I thought that would die ages ago and it's still hanging on. gross.

    I like skinny men in skinny jeans. It looks cute. Better than those baggy, shapeless things that he was prob wearing at age 14. Shorter, athletic guys look better in jeans other than skinny jeans. It's a shame when a man doesn't dress to his strengths, especially if he's good looking.

    I wear levi's 511s...eh, they're kind of skinny. They're kind of the same style of jeans I wore when I was 14 actually. Hipster skinny would be the 510 though (or whatever brand equivalent). I wouldn't wear those, but I might be able to pull that off (I probably shouldn't). I'm about 185 and 6'5", so I'm skinny myself.. What looks weird is when someone is shorter and has thick thighs.

    I think they look good on the appriopriate body type. Especially if they hold on the douchebag.

    I'm pretty similar myself. 510s are a joke and are for people who are trying too hard. 511, however, is a nice balance. I just resent it when jeans do not taper in from the quad (muscle) to the knee! That's why I usually go for "Slim" cut since "Classic" is just straight up-and-down.

    As a point, I'm 6' and 12 1/2 stone, which is 175lbs in American.

    Are you guys saying you actually like this look, or are you picturing something different?

    You're not thinking of regular straight cut jeans, maybe?

    Whatever happened to normal jeans? I don't worry myself about the whole hipster too much, but I'm still wondering where the mindstate of the culture spawned from. After a run through of this thread a lot of folks seem to point to some postmodern doctorines. I see that aesthetic. What I don't see the use. It seems the sterotype has these guys and girls as a barista, in bookstores, and artist. I know I come across there kind. They are cool people, but if they aren't artist I'm wondering what they're cutting out for the future.

    I'm still trying to find out where this group of people are going, and what they are doing for all of us. What's their use? Punk had a mission statement. Afrobeat and Fela Kuti were looking to change. I have a friend of mine from high school who was a basketball player. His name was Jerry. He had a thing for music; he made underground hip hop beats. Over years of seeking through music, the culture coming along with it, he found his niche.

    He became a hipster.

    Guitar in tow, he now goes to the University of San Fransico, and has plans to put out an album with influences of Radiohead. Now, he isn't the only person I've seen out of the suburbs turn from their "urban" roots to this hipster lifestyle. There is this tattooist girl I knew from afar. Now that I've gotten the chance to get familiar with, I can see how she grew out of that adoloscent stage to the youthful alternative of hipster-dom. Truth be told, I've got a thing for the girl. All these hipster, artsy girls, with enough brains and ambition, aren't that bad to have around. They're quirky. I can appreciate that. I think...


    Random cute hipster.

    I just don't know where this movement is taking all these Urban Outfitter loyal customers. What's the point?

    i thought the point was sort of rejection and disdain of the norm, plus, in those who are slightly more enlightened, a desire to embrace individuality and noncomformity. so it doesn't really have to have a direction, besides "against".

    i mean, how many TJ hipsters have you met?

    I don't think of myself as a hipster, but I do have a beard, and some hipster-y beliefs. I actually really like history, especially of places outside the U.S, which kind of influences my view of things. I'm especially interested in the gap that exists between popular narratives and what might have actually happened. I think to an extent, history is written by the victors.

    I'm not really into the elitism about music, but I think music is great. I do love meat, which automatically alienates me from a lot of hipster circles.

    In terms of fashion, I like plaid and solid colors, and try to avoid sneakers unless I actually feel like doing exercise. I skew a little more towards the formal side in my workplace, if you can call wearing jeans formal. I don't dress to fit into a group, I just wear what I think looks good on me.

    Other people might see me as a hipster, though.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....
