Hip doesn't clearly and accurately describe these hoards of 20 somethings that are trying the Brooklyn look for the first time. Purchasing looks at stores like Urban Outfitters and Cheap Jacks, there is nothing original about the oversized plaid shirts, black spandex/ skinny tight pants, Wallabees, and big framed glasses (minus the glass of course.) Getting their influences from celebrities, store windows and magazines, they trade the old for the new (or should I say vintage.) A Hipster would be someone from Brooklyn with an original look, these on the other hand, like sheep, copy the trends and each other.
