You'll Never Look As Cool As Your Hipster Dad


Ever wondered what your dad looked like when he was your age? We think he’d totally be in with today’s fashion trends.

The only moisturizer man hands need are 10W-30, condensation off a cold beer and other men’s blood. Your dad knew this and his fists were harder than hammers. His callouses had callouses and yet somehow his touch was still gentler than a rose pedal – just ask your mom.

Dads are the Original Hipsters is a blog that lives up to the name. The author Brad Getty compiles and publishes photos of dads all in their moustachioed, tight-pantsed glory days. The photos are like straight from 70s, 80s and 90s.

Poking fun at the hipster culture these days, Getty adds witty lines and hilarious puns to the photo descriptions. You always get a certain kick out of his posts and maybe identify your old man in more than one photo. Looking at the parade of thick-rimmed glasses, tight pants, jean cutoffs and furry facial man hair is just a laugh fest.

Cool and hip photos of fathers like these just make you kinda wonder what kind of life they had back then. Hint: apparently there’s a lot of drinking and badassery invovled. Here are some photos from the community that show off how cool dads are back in the day. They kind of make you think of dads in a different way.
