What’s Your Definition of a Hipster?


The discussions surrounding American Apparel trying to open a store on Valencia Street in San Francisco have brought up the term “Hipster” quite a bit. The name means different things depending on who you talk to, so I decided to ask people on Twitter what their definition of a Hipster was. Here’s what they had to say.

So, what’s your definition of a Hipster? Let us know in the comments.

Speaking of which, check out the hilarious Hipster Olympics by POYKPAC.

UPDATE 1: The cover story of Adbusters #79 was “Hipster: The Dead End of Western Civilization” [Gavin McInnes (founder of Vice) wrote a post on Street Carnage about “Hating Hipsters” [via Micah].

UPDATE 2: Gretchen Robinette shot this photo of a “No More Hipster Scum” sign being made at the Feburary 1st American Apparel protest. People are finding it a bit ironic.
