The purposeful irony presented by a hipster upon first glance or through deeper investigation, such as conversation. For example, only a hipster would wear a t-shirt that reads: "I'm NOT a Hipster. Believe me." It is also ironic that what hipsters deem as "cool" (or "deck," in hipster talk) is not really deck, but is approved only by members of that group.
Examples of hipster irony include iconic spectator glasses frames, a "casual" but "I'm not trying that hard to be casual" look, bedhead hair, and/or the century-old handlebar mustache comeback "look." Another example: Hipsters listen to music that they admit is crappy but that the band never "sold out." This could then be the topic of a very long discussion.
