With what lumber is costing, only lumberjacks will be able to afford their stuff.

Hipster male clothing and style (especially the oversized beard) usually resembles that of a lumberjack, so that's why this fashion company might be interested in it.

/Hipster female clothing and style usually resembles 'Dollar-store Betty Page'

LV crap is tacky, with ugly colours.

The only thing worse than someone who buys a Louis Vuitton "color de feces du bebe et de la diarrhea" bag is someone who buys a Xouis Luitton "you totally can't tell it's not a Pakistani knockoff" for merely a 1000% markup instead of 20000%.

So they can distract people from what they do in the leather industry I am guessing, so they point at the logging industry since they don't make bags from wood.

This.... is the northwestern highland ground-taco. There it is rummaging through the leaf litter for its gluten free diet. And it's got itself a terrestrial isopod, a pill bug.  They're its favorite meal, and it goes through a lot of them!...

Close enough, I guess? Though it looks like she's really bad at chopping.

Although it may be hard to believe, very few old growth trees get harvested any more.  Canada may be a bit different, but there's only one sawmill on the West Coast that can handle old growth, all the rest are setup for logs from tree farms.

I wouldn't mind teaching her proper grip techniques and how to swing.

I'm basing the Dollar-store Bettie Page look for Hipster females based on that alot of them seem to wear her hairstyle, their clothing might be Minnie Pearl but the bangs in their hair is Bettie Page.
