Dads are the Original Hipsters is a hilarious blog dedicated to resurrecting vintage photos of our fathers, in order to prove the simple fact that they were hip before hipsters even existed. If you’re a 20- or 30 something-year-old right now, you’ll probably recognize the fashion in these photos as the same trends seen in your childhood snapshots.

We decided to take the allegation to the next level, sourcing photos of today’s hottest hipsters and the results confirm – hipsters and dads are literally the same people. The facial hair? Same. The grungy t-shirts? same. The fedoras? Same. The overall general persona of both groups is literally the exact same. And we have to admit, both are kind of hot.

Take a look at some of the comparisons below and see if you can tell a difference, in a little game we like to play called “Hipster or Dad?”.
