The "original hipster" of the current generation, if they would be willing to be called as such (they would love to be called original, but not hipster), was more of a bearded lumberjack-meets-thrift-shop look.

This newer group, the the article demonstrates, is more of a yupster look. They want to look artsy and independent, but arent quite willing to go slumming at the Salvation Army.

The 2000s era hipster was more hippie inspired, while the 2010 version is more beatnik.

"In 2003 Bella Freud created a black sweater with the words 'Ginsberg is God' emblazoned across it. Kate Moss wore it and people who had never read Howl suddenly knew who Ginsberg was."

Che Guevara begs to differ.

the 2000s era hipster was somebody who lived in a city, worked a job nearby, and smoked weed all day... not a lot to it

the modern hipster requires effort

So, wait - if I wear my shirt out, with the tails hanging out under my too-large v-neck sweater, over ironic mom jeans, with horn rim wayfarer glasses and tie-dyed Doc Martens, is that still a thing?  Or is this "out" now?

AdamK: the modern hipster requires effort


In all fairness, it's a lot of work to carry your manual typewriter to your local coffee shop so you can sit there and pretend to type your novel. Those things are heavy.

/Especially if you have no muscle tone and you're wearing jeans that are so tight, it's cutting off blood flow to your lower body.
