Hipsters, Beware: Your Leader Has Abandoned You

American Apparel CEO Dov Charney is done with hipsters, but it has nothing to do with his company going down the toilet and nearing bankruptcy. Rather, Charney explains, hipsters are over, stylistically-speaking: “Hipsters are from a certain time period … The stereotype of a hipster is not something people aspire to anymore. Do you want to be a hipster? Nobody wants to be a hipster.” To change things around, Charney, the man who practically invented hipsterdom, is trying to take American Apparel in a preppier direction. But wait … aren’t hipsters all about being ironic? So technically, wouldn’t putting them in pleated skirts and oxford button-ups covertly mock the stodgy structures they rebel against, making them yet more hipster-y? We’re confused. Whatever.
