I've noticed something... If you wear Banana Republic, J Crew and other preppy brands... you're a hipster. If you wear old man pants and a flannel from a thrift store... you're a hipster. If you wear a rock and roll teesh and ripped up jeans... you're a hipster. If you make your own clothes and attempt to be unique... you're a hipster. If you shop at wal mart on the cheap (EVERYone can tell you're being ironic)... you're a hipster. (And that old navy man bag is SO hipster!) If you wear fubu and a cock your hat... you're probably a hipster, ya hipster.
"hipster" is such a generic and uncreative way of condescending someone. if you're going to take the time to insult somebody's style (or lifestyle), at least use a label that means something (or sounds funny), ya hobnobbin' munch.
