    A hipster is someone who watches top gear and wears big shoes (don't listen what other ppl said they don't know what hipster actually is)

    A skinny sometimes bearded male who looks like they've been dragged thru a Topman branch or a female budding "fashionista" with a wordpress blog.
    Likes **** bands like "Mumford & Sons" and enjoys frequenting artisan coffee shops to surf the web on their fruit branded device while sipping on an overpriced diabetes inducing drink.

    The hipster is an interesting specimen I have had the rare chance to observe in its natural habitat, London more specifically Shoreditch, Brixton, Camden Town and surrounding areas.
    Common physical characteristics of the male include super skinny jeans, branded yet artfully battered footwear, i.e. dr martens, vans, 90s nikes/adidas' etc, an assortment of meaningless tattoos etc, sometimes a beard. other types of hipsters may wear tortoiseshell reading glasses, t-shirts from obscure bands, oversized jumpers/shirts etc.
    personality traits include, but are not limited to: Frequenting obscure indie/underground cafes/clubs, a penchant for bands with names beginning with The, i.e. The Smiths, having an uncommon passion i.e. a lover of Cuban coffee, penny collecting, obsessions with vintage vinyl records etc.
    Please note: This list is not exhaustive as hipster is an umbrella term for those whose goal it is to defy the norm/mainstream, there are many variations to the hipster sub-culture.
    Warning: Under any circumstances do not refer to said hipster as a hipster as they will profusely deny this form of labelling and in some rare cases have been known to become violent.

    People who try to be different for the sake of being different. It's good to be willing to be different, but it needs a purpose.

    London is really bad for this. Lots of cafes and restaurants seem to trade off of a unique selling point or a gimmick rather than by being high quality. Apparently in the East End there is a cafe with cats which just roam about the place, I like cats but I don't see the point.

    It shows how dead this country is, people are so uninspired they do weird stuff for no reason other than attention.


    Ahahaha, imagine that, like when you choose what lobster you want to eat from the tank. You chose which cat you want and they curry it

    It's disturbing sometimes that I fit so many of these things.
    -Wear (kinda worn out) boots on a daily basis
    -Have a beard
    -Likes obscure bands (and has many obscure band shirts)
    -Collect coins
    -Own vinyl records

    I'm not a hipster though. I promise.

    Yeah, a little. I don't think I look/act that much like a hipster, the coincidences between me and them are just coincidences, I think.
