Alright so this is basicaly what a hypebeast is:

1. A hypbeast is a person who collects underground trends such as stussy, The Hundreds, Huf, Supreme, etc. And maybe also be a person who is a shoe head, and collects Nike Sb's.

2. Hypbeasts Live in urban/Suburban places such as NYC, Bay Area, and a few places in Honolulu.

3. A lot of Hypebeasts skate, but are to scared to skate in there Sb's because of fear that they might crease or damage them. So after doing a trick, Hypebeasts might stop after doing a trick and wipe off dirt off their shoes.

4. Hypebeasts also wear bright retro colors such as neon colors like orange light blue and Purple.

Note: Purple is a HYPEBEAST color.
Hypebeasts where PURPLE too much. thats like there national color. haha.

1 - Oh dude, did you hear about the new Ferris Buller's that are coming out?

2 - Oh damn dude, Lets go to The HUndereds at Post St. and hype it up. And then maybe
we could go to Haight St and go to the
Stussy store and just bop over there.

3 - Oh damn, look at that hypebeast, he got those sexy Tiffany's.

a hypebeast is an individual that rocks whatever brand or style might be trending at the time. they choose clothes specifically to impress others. if an individual wears LRG, nike SB, levis, etc. theyre not necessarily a hypebeast, if they purchase what they enjoy and dont buy shit based on everyone elses opinion, then they just have their swag locked the fuck down

A stuck-up, self-centered young person who only wears hyped up streetwear brands including Stussy, Crooks & Castles, Orisue ect. Hypebeasts are often sneakerheads with a generic sense of style that often entails wearing neon colored sb dunks paired with new era fitted hats and god awful all over print hoodies and jeans so tight that they cut off the wearer's circulation to the brain. Hypebeast fashion sense is loosely based on the classic urban fashion sense of the 90s & 80s. But these hipster streetwear kids always O.D. on retro style. How are you gonna be born in 1991, and dress like you are a teenager in 1984? Most hypebeasts get their carbon-copied style from magazines like Complex and online forums dedicated to such streetwear.

Hypebeasts usually live in and around the urban centers of Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City and D.C. However, many cities across the country including Baltimore, Philly and the rougher boroughs of NYC (i.e. Brooklyn) maintain their distinct local urban style which differs greatly from the semi-homosexual hypebeast style. Since many hypebeasts hail from soft, posh suburban environments, they would probably get stomped the fuck out by twenty different pairs of Timberland boots and Air force 1's if they dare tread in the ghettos of such cities.

Although hypebeasts come from all different racial backgrounds, more often then not, most hypebeasts are Filipino or some other type of Asian because most of the hypebeast fashion brands were founded by Asians from California (i.e. Crooks & Castles, The Hundreds and LRG). This is a very recent social phenomenon because back in the 90s, urban fashion was usually strictly worn by blacks, latinos and certain whites who actually lived in urban areas.
Those hypebeast kids sitting at that table over there think their the shit. But their style is so homo. All of those short pussy mawfuckers would get beat the fuck up if they took a trip to say ... North Philly, Jamaica, Queens, West Baltimore or anywhere that was a real ghetto.
