Misjudging Hipsters

This has now happened three times which compels me to make a meme as an apology. 

Though I will plead with these "conservative hipsters" to ditch the salmon jeans, hit the gym, and get a real haircut.  You have no idea how much you're wearing the enemy's uniform and confusing the rest of us.

"The enemy's uniform." Haha!! Ain't that the truth!

What else would one expect from a Starship captain who was just a wannabe tailor:

"Make it sew!"

Thankfully I live in the Seattle region so if they're dressed like a hipster chances are it's safe to pass judgment.

Reminds me of Dave Chapelle's old standup:

Girl: Just because I'm dressed this way does not make me a whore!

Dave: You're not a whore. But you're in a whore's uniform.

The "salmon jeans" bit made me laugh. I recall shopping for some standard, boring Levi's a couple years ago and seeing the latest - red Levi's - and doing a double take. What comes around goes around. The following Levi's ad aired when I was in high school - 1972. Besides the red jeans (towards the end), the extra wide belt was the latest - replacing the skinny belts from the 60's. The most unusual jean attribute in the ad, although unseen, is that Levi's were being made in the USA in '72.

I wear skinny jeans and v necks when I'm not working. A social justice type I struck up a conversation with me later told me he couldn't believe how racist and sexist I was.

It came in handy during the February meetup protests though. They never suspected me as I walked by.

Fun fact:One of my leftist and male feminist friends told me I'm the most masculine metro sexual looking man he knows, something he didn't think possible.

This worries me a bit.

I've been pointing this out for years.

A lot of these hipsters just need some guidance.

Btw, red trousers--also pink, white, blue, and green--are cool.

The canonical source of red pants aren't dyed Levi's, they're Nantucket Reds:
