    Saw this on flikr a few weeks ago(thanks to another thread here).

    Very cool series.


    Though, what quantifies those people as 'hipsters'?

    for some of them, it's the hipster haircut, the neckbeards, and flagrant hats
    others are just normal people

    Pretty interesting. Alot of people carried ligthers and bottle openers, and like half of them had their keys on a karabiner :confused:
    Sad to see the extreme lack of knifes and multitools, there where zero multitools and like five knives, the only one which seemed of proper quality was a spyderco. The others where small cheapies, except the first one which was a large locking folder carried by a young woman, my guess would be for self defense - she also carried pebberspray.
    On that note, way too little items for self defense if you ask me.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I've seen comments where people who posted guns were attacked for doing so. Not often, and never to me, but I've seen it happen.

    If I had a nickel for every time someone asked me for a knife ..

    Nothing really, It's just another label/title for people to misuse ..

    BE WELL .. GH

    What about the hot moody looking chick that carries a HUGE knife (second from the top)? That is AWESOME.

    As for what makes them hipsters, it is their pouty facial expressions.

    no multi-tools

    Apparently Hipsters smoke, mostly Parliaments.

    If you can picture them in an Apple commercial, they're hipsters :D That's my acid test.

    Thanks for sharing the link, it's an interesting "read".

    I find it surprising that there are ZERO SAKs.

    So, that they have a fairly pretty and/or interesting face and wear a certain style of clothing makes them hipsters?
    Now... no, I'm not going to argue, forget about it.

    I did expect to see more SAKs, too.


    The guy needs to eat a lot of apples, the way he looks. And burgers. And steaks. And chocolate. And everything. ^^
