No, no ... Yaschicas I'm are scrappy enough to have street cred where a Rollei might just be so "everyone-has-that". You need a Ricohflex or Flexaret to really up your hip-game, depending on which continent you'd like to inherit your authentic swagger from.
Ha Ha Ha - see? Total nerd! I don’t need/have cred anyway - I’m just shooting film while I still can. This one will do just fine, thank you very much.

I'm not sure swagger is a good thing when there's a heavy camera around your neck...

No it isnʻt, but swagger is perfect for hipster camera holsters.

Thatís why the TLR is ideal... light enough for swagger.

Itís only the lightweight hipsters doing the dainty Canonets that are making the Yashicas seem heavy.

someone swaggering with a Pentax 67 or a Mamiya RB without falling right over, now thatís impressive.

Staggering, on the other hand, well thatís expected...

True there! That's hip-ness bought and paid for.... due diligence. Earned!

IMHO the ultimate cool is to be totally unhip. Cool. Take the photos like its every day.

It’s so cold (below freezing) and gray here all I’ve gotten done is scouting locations. Yesterday the Botanical Garden. Today a mid-19th C. River community about an hour north of my house. Crazy neat old houses built chock-a-block up against the limestone bluffs, just crying out for large negatives.

A great benefit is free film from generous Pentax Forum members -> Give away: Seven rolls of Kodak Gold Royal 25 ISO. Especially when it is great film that was kept well!
