Top Definition
One who greatly loves artifacts and aesthetics from the past. Typically associated with hipsters, whose attire often hearken back to past decades, retrophilia often goes hand and hand with a general distaste for modern culture. Common items and traits found on a retrophile are pocket watches, fedoras or top hats, ties, old-fashioned sports jackets, a love for instructional videos from the early 1950s, a preference for music than involves a mixture of psychedelia, folk, baroque, and classical, and pretentiousness.
Man, modern consumerism fuels all sorts of distasteful manifestations in our society. Check out my vintage aviators, antique fedora, and tie-dye shirt. I wish I lived in a mixture of the 1960s and Edwardian England. I'm such a retrophile.
