Early life phase:

Battered Nike Air Force Ones, different (but battered) pair every day
Baggy jeans
Belt they got at a car boot sale
Expensive trendy t-shirt
'Insane' unbrushed or overbrushed hair
Sweat bands and friendship bracelets
I-pod playing angsty indie rubbish
Hates authority, apart from when it does the essential job of preventing the lower-classes coming near them
Likes cannabis
Likes alchohol
Takes art and photography at college
Has really 'cool' smokers drawl...painstakingly laboured...

Later life phase:
Daddy wrangles them job, now they are authority
Wears trendy suits and Emo glasses, probably even if theres's nothing wrong with eyesight
Bound to like some kind of pretentious crap like Freud or Sartre

i realized about a month ago just how much i fall into the 'hipster' category...Battered Nike Air Force Ones, different (but battered) pair every day yes
Baggy jeans yes
Belt they got at a car boot sale no, but i need a leather belt and new ones cost so much...
Expensive trendy t-shirt i suppose so
'Insane' unbrushed or overbrushed hair i haven't used a hairbrush in about 3 years and i get my hair cut like every 5 months
Sweat bands and friendship bracelets nah, horrible
I-pod playing angsty indie rubbish i wouldn't call it rubbish
Hates authority, apart from when it does the essential job of preventing the lower-classes coming near them i hate cops and bus drivers, but i am from a working class background so i don't have an attitude problem, i'm nice really
Likes cannabis no it's played out
Likes alchohol beer
Takes art and photography at college part of my history course involves film
Has really 'cool' smokers drawl...painstakingly laboured... i don't smoke, but if i did...


i suppose i'm not as shallow as the whole stereotype but i've been called one before. no scarf indoors though!

Nah, sorry. Cannabis and being a middle-class hypocrite are integral parts of the whole hipster thing where I live. You'd just be 'someone who dresses trendy'. Another essential test is, do you think society 'owes you' a really good job?

i don't want a job, i just want to go to every great city in the world...

so i'll probably end up working in record stores and income support from the government

things cost too much, i don't care about money but i need it to do stuff so any the government wants to give me is fine by me

i can talk pretentious crap all day though!

good definitions

though there are some good indie rock bands too and I love to talk about philosphic topics (including sartre)
anyway the key point seems to be that these are people who want to develope their own individuality and hence reject mainstream but fall into the trap of alternative mainstream and fail therefore?

ugh! I hate the hipsters in my city. Almost all of them come from money. They all buy expensive jeans, but they have to be the latest to make them the coolest in their bunch. They sneer at me and my fashionable friends at our most frequented bar. They are typically at the dive bars, but one nite a week a dj spins old soul and they flock in and stand around like they're too good/too bothered to be there. The bartenders hate them because all they drink is cheap beer.

come now.. i think some take the hipster thing far too seriously,
not all of them are rich or spoiled,
not all of them wear low wait trousers,
not all of them have messy hairstyles,
not all of them are cannabis smokers or drinkers

the term goes back to the 50s and the beatniks
but hipsters have been around for ages,
its nothing new and can be found in all forms and shapes, really

some of the generalisations i've read here just made me simply go

Lena--It's a huge trend/anti-trend amongst 20 somethings here in the states. I think it's probably different where you are. I don't like to categorize people, but if the pump fits....

sorry guys but i'm with lena on this one. if i was to be classified it would definetely be as a hipster. although i'd like to differentiate between scenesters and hipsters. scenesters look like hipsters from a distance, but up close they are obnoxious, poorly dressed, and far more irritating to me than "normals" (generic people). also, emo is pretty much extinct and it is what has evolved into the present day scenester.

and "scarfie shoes"? what is this?..is it an east coast thing?
