Word on the publishing street is that the tumblr blog Dads are the Original Hipsters is headed down the blog-turned-book road. This is welcome news because it’s a killer, well-executed idea. (Too use a couple of violent adjectives.)

Your dad kept it warm in a pea coat before you did and he has the anchor buttons to prove it. Long before you ever strolled into a surplus store to buy your own Navy issued bit of sailor sex appeal, he was making blue wool and slash pockets look hard. [link]

Congrats, Brad Getty.


Update: If you think your dad may have been an original hipster, submit your own photo of him here for Brad’s book and website.
