    Mustache wax and trilby hats. Worn unironically. Summers in Montauk and I guess now winters at hunta.

    Hipsters don't generally live amongst the unwashed Brooklyn masses (though a hipster would never admit that).

    I spend plenty of time in NYC, and I've been living in Greater North Brooklyn - aka the HV town with the biggest (and probably most-deserved) reputation for attracting weird-bearded, artisan-kombucha-drinking tattooed Williamsburg refugees - for a long time now.

    There are plenty of people around who make ostentatious aesthetic choices that are easy to scoff at, if you're the scoffing type. There are plenty who seem to have let "irony" take over as their guiding personality trait. Here, there and everywhere.

    But we as a society ought to find other ways of describing these people (among many things that we as a society ought to do.)

    "Hipster" is a term that's been so thoroughly overused and bowdlerized to mean "anyone I don't like, because I take them to be weirder than me" as to be meaningless.

    See that's the thing, right? "Williamsburg" has been shorthand for hipsterdom for a decade-plus now, but most of the real salt-of-the-earth artsy types (as opposed to "creatives" ) - the real people who would actually be in "this cool obscure band, you wouldn't know about them though" got squeezed outta there and places like that by the finance/tech bros and condo developers years ago. They're getting squeezed out of places like this, now too.

    I think you're all talking about something a little different - upper middle class poseurs. It just so happens they can grow facial hair and get tattoos and crow obnoxiously about craft cocktails and so on - all things that get to be pretty precious, though harmless - so they get this label and it's stuck. I still don't think it's of any use.

    Only a hipster would claim that the term “hipster” has no meaning.
