Meet Günther Krabbenhöft, a grandpa that was photographed near the Kotbusser Tor station in Berlin. Now, most people think that when you reach a certain age, style goes out the window. But he’s proven he’s as much of a hipster as young people, and despite what the internet says, he’s around 70, not 104 like everyone believes.

Reality is, nobody knows how old he is, as he still hasn’t disclosed how old he is. Now some sources claim he’s around 70, but one thing they don’t mention is that he’s magazine cover material.

He’s well aware that he’s not a kid anymore, so when he needs to sit and take a breather, he does. He also knows it’s important to take a minute to cool off, which is why he’s using this fan as a prop. And we’re totally living for those boots!  

Well Done, Young Man

This is how a gentleman goes out for a stroll. Berliners tend to express themselves through their style, and Günther’s is saying volumes about how cool his wardrobe selection really is. “I’ve always dressed like this. When I went to work, when I go to exercise,” he said.  

He Doesn’t Have Millions

Although he has a million-dollar smile, he isn’t exactly rolling in it, despite what his outward appearance suggests. “I have only a limited amount to spend. Therefore, it’s important that it’s good and inexpensive,” he told The Huffington Post about his classy outfits.  

Inspired by the Classics

While Günther has a very hipster vibe to him, he actually finds himself inspired by looks from the ’20s, ’50s, and ’60s. But whatever era his style is from, it’s safe to say he’s one of Berlin’s most fashionable grandfathers around.
