I've heard of these people who wear chasidic garments, pray nusach sfard, and learn chassidus but don't follow one chassidus exclusively or have one rebbe they follow. Does this fit in with a normal chasidic system? Is this a new thing? I just want clarification because I am a chussid, have a rebbe and I follow one chassidus or I learn from other chassidusen (whatever my rebbe thinks is appropriate for me).

You mean wears levushim like this? –  Shmuel Brin Jan 8 at 22:56
    
I guess. I don't mean based entirely off of levushim, I just mean people who do chassidishe things, without having a specific rebbe or chassidus that they follow. –  Yechiel Jan 8 at 23:00
    
Doesn't this question contain its own answer: "the chassidei klali [are] these people who wear chasidic garments, pray nusach sfard, and learn chassidus but don't follow one chassidus exclusively or have one rebbe they follow." What is a normal chasidic system? (Regading novelty: History is full of people who had several rebbes and lone chassidic tzaddikim without any rebbe at all.) –  NBZ Jan 12 at 13:44
