These Vintage Photos Are Proof Our Dads Were The Original Hipsters

Hipsters always claim to be the first ones to do something before it goes mainstream.

If you thought hipsters were the first ones to wear thick-rimmed glasses, listen to indie music and rock facial hair, think again.

Your dad was actually a badass hipster way before beards and flannel were considered lumbersexual fashion statements.

That's right, take a look at some old family photos and it's not hard to see your dad had the style, facial hair and attitude of a damn hipster legend back in the day.

Recently, the Tumblr Dads are the Original Hipsters set out to find some of the best vintage pictures showing dads just dripping in OG hipster swag.

All of the old-school father photos are pretty epic, not to mention hilarious, and prove dads were badass, bike-riding, whiskey-drinking urban woodsmen way before today's pathetic hipsters jacked their effortlessly cool style.

Take a look at the photos below to see these original hipster dads.
