Haha - classic. I think the beards are the big one. Go to Jo'burg and you won't find those particular hipster beards. You can spot a Capetonian in JHB a mile away. They also use words like 'bro' instead of 'bout'..

They all use the mountain to give directions and tomorrow is really another day!

In terms of appearance- they are Millennials and Early Adopters at their best!

Less physical enhancements; always late, always in a rush, all while being super chill.

We're the ones avoiding all the tourist traps in December and January...

Well usually, if they are girls, and it's Summer - they're wearing those ghastly high-waisted shorts and rocking those little crochet granny tops. And so few of them have the bodies for it these days. Nevertheless...that seems to be the standard uniform. The boys on the other hand are doing better in the fashion department when it comes to being quintessentially Capetonians. I'm seeing a lot less man buns and beards. But if you still wear a fedora : Stop.

Well the Millennials seem to be taking over. I think they a fun, free, style and I like it! Even by the way they dress they give off a vibe that is carefree and relaxed. I have stolen a couple outfit ideas from quite a few Capetonians, I admit. :)

Everything is rad. Well, only rad things that are actually rad are rad. Rad is the only rad way of saying ‘cool’.

Capetonains sound like Brooklyn hipsters. The new hip urban socially conscious generation.

When they are carrying around a record player instead of an iPod.

South Africa. They briefly held the status of the world's best Test team in 2008. The road to reclaiming the No. 1 spot begins with a win against the Aussies and an army of cheering supporters.

I must just add that various of parts of Johannesburg aren't doing too badly when it comes to hipsters - if that's where this whole conversation is going? Go to Maboneng and you'll spot some hippie activity and bicycle wielding bros for sure. Or maybe that's where all the Capetonian ex-pats are hanging?

I hardly meet any capetonian expats in JHB! It always seems to me that JHB ppl are moving down to CT
