Awesome Dads Were Unintentionally the Original Hipsters

Dads are the Original Hipsters is a single-topic blog that really puts things into perspective. Though the facial hair, thick-rimmed glasses, and mismatched clothing patterns are carefully selected by hipsters today, it was an unintentional choice by dads in the 70s, 80s, and 90s.

If you're a 20- or 30-something-year-old right now, you might recognize the fashion sense of your peers without realizing just how close to home it is. That is, until you take a look at some old family photos and notice that your dad was the original hipster! The photos in this hilarious blog show dads from all walks of life that look and act exactly like the hipsters of today. They've even got their own bicycles, typewriters, and blas attitudes! Suddenly, dads everywhere seem a whole lot cooler.
