Lumberjoke | Pejorative/Slander/Subculture | An inexplicable subculture of mostly young men who dress up like lumberjacks even though they’ve never cut down a tree or set up a tent in their lives. The basic uniform includes a checkered flannel shirt, woolen cardigan or vest, cuffed denim trousers, thick-rimmed glasses, a pair of unscuffed Red Wing leather boots, a toque or flat-brimmed baseball hat, full-sleeve or neck tat, an extra short-back-and-sides brill-creamed haircut complete with burly beard, and a copy of Kinfolk.

Usage: “It’s fucking incredible how Gastown went from Lumberjacks to Lumberjokes in under a century…”explore-the-lexicon
