There's A Hipster Santa And He's Got An Amazing Man Bun

No red suit for this Saint Nick in Portland, Oregon.

This Santa Claus has swapped his classic red suit for a more hipster vibe.

The Saint Nick in Portland, Oregon, has replaced the conventional costume with jeans, thick-rimmed glasses and a sweater, according to a video report by WISH-TV.

There's also the man bun. And he uses pedal power to get around instead of a sleigh and reindeer, reports KXAN.

The "Hipster Santa," as he's been dubbed, appeared at the Pioneer Place shopping mall in downtown Portland on Thursday, according to KOIN.

Numerous photos are being posted to social media detailing his modern get-up:

He'll return to the mall in his trend-setting threads on Dec. 10 and Dec. 17., per KOIN.

It's been a busy holiday season so far for Saint Nicks across the world.

A Santa in Brazil is being hunted by cops after he stole a helicopter last week, at the same time as a heartwarming picture emerged showing Kris Kringle taking a nap with a young baby in Indiana.

Meanwhile, reports of Father Christmas' death in Norway were wildly premature and a man mistaken for the gift-giver by a little boy managed to keep the Christmas magic alive in Ontario, Canada.
