Your dad was a hipster before it was cool.

This may be hard to believe. But once upon a time, before the days of regaling us with cheesy jokes and wearing joggers with jeans, our dads were actually cool.

So cool, in fact, that they were hipsters – the original hipsters.

They were the Neanderthal Man of the hipster world. Luxuriant facial hair, thick-rimmed glasses, vinyls, manual film cameras: yep,  our adorably daggy dads owned and rocked them all, long before today’s cool cats were but a twinkle in their eyes.

But don’t take our word for it, have a look through this gallery of awesome, reader-submitted dad snaps from the enormously popular Dads are the Original Hipsters blog and if you want more images of ‘cool before they were cool’ dad’s, visit this page.
