Fresh out of college mid 20’s people who claim to dislike all that is mainstream or popular, which is usually reflected in their taste of indie music and how quickly they’ll shun a group the moment they end up on a soundtrack, TV commercial/show or on the radio. They also dislike mainstream fashion which makes them easily spotted since the guys all wear the higher-then-clam-digger style pants while the girls all wear extremely thick rimmed glasses. (Making them conformist in their own group).

The surest sign of a hipster is their dislike for everything corporate so while they may never want to buy anything from a Starbucks, Gap or Pottery Barn, they will have no problem working for them since they always seem to be flat broke and complain about having financial problems, even though they have mom & dad paid BA.

Note: Hipsters dislike the title of hispster and are irritated to be called one.
Person: hey, I really like that Garden State soundtrack
Hipster: The Shins suck now for letting their song be on that album, how dare they try and make a buck.
Person: you’re such a typical Hipster
Hipster: I am NOT a hipster!

Hipsters are people who dress like they Po' but have designer sunglasses and IPhones and generally suck at anything useful and add to the Global #$*&% douche epidemic.
That "hipster" has a lot of buttons on his messenger bag, I asked him what they meant and he said "I have no Idea but they cost $6 a piece!".

ppl who think they're better than everyone because they reject "mainstream" music and listen to indie and pop. they love to use a lot of big words to make themselves feel better than everyone.they dont really care about how they look or staying in shape even if there nut hugger skinny jeans and tight v necks make them look gay and destroy there sperm.some of the men wear unisex clothing and sometimes even women clothing which is pretty gay to me.they like to also wear glasses and sunglasses. try to act like they appreciate art and photography.not all hipsters are jerks but some are pretty snobby and think highly of themselves and have know it all syndrome and love talking shit about other sub cultures like hip hop because they will never understand it or probly didnt fit in and are too soft to actually fight. they also like to buy a lot of expensive things which ppl can sometimes get confused with hypebeast but they are actually pretty different.the men usually have bangs that look pretty emo like green day.some hipsters will actually deny that they are hipsters

People who are disapointed that you don't know the band they like, wear suspenders, make ironic jokes, wear lots of hats (especially toques), read lots of books, enjoy wiriting, enjoy mixtapes, dislike most of the mainstream, or have names like Braxton would be considered hipster.
Also hipsters are often those who protest being called a hipster. It would be too mainstream for them.
your friend: "Hey, that new kid's name is Braxton."

you: "Whoa, why is he wearing suspenders?"

your friend: "I don't know, but he just asked about some band called the Hundreds. What a hipster!"

Braxton: "I'm not a hipster!!!"

Forget everything you know about hipsters its all wrong. Hipsters are the third gender of the human race, these individuals segregate themselves from the other two genders by sporting their own gender specific fashion, culture and music. The hipster gender has to this day baffled the scientific community for they play no part in reproduction nor contribute to society what so ever (because they usually have no job and live off their parents trust fund ... its fucking true). The usual human hipster would generally perceive members of other genders as inferior, rejecting all ideas and culture of the genders and referring to it as being "too mainstream" a term they use for something that doesn't appeal to their gender much like a man playing with barbie dolls or a woman who is somewhere other than the kitchen. Hipsters are usually found boasting about their great knowledge on pointless topics that most people wouldn't really give a shit about and their useless philosophy/art degree that they cant and wont use. Scientist theorize that the reason the hipster gender is not found in the wild is because the members of the gender had long ago died off. The hipster lifestyle is not compatible in the wild for there are no Cafes, Parliament Cigarettes, Crappy Indie Music and all carnivorous hipster animals would have perished from refusing to consume meat. Also like the whole population of the United States all hipsters have no clue as to the correct usage of the word "irony"
Hipster: I wear prescription glasses even tho i dont even need them cos im being ironic hurr derrrrp.

A shallow subculture of teens and young adults that shows how the worst of human tendencies to seek some kind of dominance over one another even stoops down to the most mundane subjects like tastes in music and fashion.
You know you're a hipster when you describe in the most pretentious way possible why your taste in edgy/vintage clothing and obscure music makes you a better person than everyone else while projecting your insecurities onto people who successfully fit into the realms of society while you failed miserably at doing so.
