"You might be thinking of the 90s punk revival. The workwear thing was a reflection of what was happening in the skateboard scene at the time (90s punk and the skate scene were tied at the hip) and the remnants of the grunge scene."

""The problem is that we’ve lumped too many subcultures and stereotypes into the definition of the hipster. As a result, the word, as an insult, has become completely meaningless. For example, those dorks who dress like it’s 1932 and…"

"Hipster doesn't actually mean anything anymore. People think it does but it doesn't. It might have meant something at one point but now people use the word hipster to describe just about anyone who doesn't dress like a Romney.…"

"Ah! I see! You're upset that people are paying too much for brand names that are essentially over-priced cheap beer. We have that same phenomenon in Canada, too. People pay an arm and a leg for what the industry calls "domestic…"
