Rick Steves Owns His Title As “The Original Hipster,” Shares Amazing Fashion Tips

I hadn't given Rick Steves much thought until earlier this week, when he created what might be the best Facebook photo album of all time, "Rick Steves: The Original Hipster." Now I have a massive crush on him, which is very upsetting because he kind of looks like my dad. Anyway, I'll let him explain: Last month,…

Afraid You’re A Hipster? Don’t Worry, There’s A Cure!

Worried that the fixed gear bike you're riding and the artisanal honey you've spread on your organic spelt bread might mean that you're a hipster? The bad news? Despite your protestations, you probably, definitely are a hipster (the first rule of Hipster Club is to deny you'd deign to be in it). But good news!

Taylor Swift Hates Your Indie Rock Band, Okay?

"That all came out of this one relationship I was in. This guy was just, so, so cool. It kind of gave me a bit of a complex for this album, because he was always going on and on about this new band that was so cool because they were so underground. I have so…

The Hipster Hunger Games Are Happening

Participating in the Hipster Hunger Games might be no big deal if you've, like, already been a raw vegan or whatever. But for the rest of us who are off in our overly expensive apartments downing PBRs and listening to that really cool band you haven't heard of yet, it's going to be kind of…

The Littlest Hipster In The World

"Shut up mom, I'm trying to get this mix right for my next DJ gig at Les Deux. Have you heard that band Odd Future? I saw them down at SXSW and they totally killed it. Trevor says he's going to have me model in his fall lookbook -- it's got a very French New…

Yelp Helps Hungry Hipsters Find Places To Dine

I'm glad that Yelp has finally recognized the hipsters as a category of people that need to eat. Now you can find out if a restaurant or bar is known for its "hipster" ambience. But you'd better act quickly, as once an establishment earns a "hipster" rating, all the actual hipsters stop going there. Maybe…

New Site Makes You Guess: Hipster Or Hobo?

The moment the Sartorialist posted a picture of a homeless man looking chic on his blog, we had to realize this day was inevitable.

Are Hipsters Turning Into Prepsters?

This is the leaked cover for the sophomore album from Vampire Weekend. The record is set to be released to the peeps in January, but the image is already shaking things up. Is this Ralph Lauren casual polo look going to come back? Are we going from skinny panted punks into pleated khakis? And i…

Stop Trying to Make Scrunchies Happen, American Apparel

We've kept silent while Dov Charney has screwed around with fashion. We put up with the pervy advertisements. We put up with Charney masturbating in front of a Jane reporter. We put up with his numerous sexual harassment lawsuits. We put up with…

Waxing On About Waxing Off

I’ve always found it funny that as the Brazilian -- and I'm talking waxing here, people -- has became more popular among women, it's beards, mustaches, and facial scruffiness that has become more in vogue for men. I can't help but wonder why the women of my generation are hacking off their bushes while the…
