Riots At the American Apparel Sample Sale


We get that American Apparel‘s colorful cotton basics have become staple items in most wardrobes. We also understand that sales can make people a tad crazy. But the scene outside of this U.K. American Apparel rummage sale still seems a tad excessive. Shouldn’t hipsters be more interested in making the rest of us feel pedestrian about our musical tastes than fighting it out over hoodies, anyway? [Styleite] Keep reading »

Terrifying Trend We Hope Goes Away Quickly

Brooklyn is kind of the birthplace of numerous hipster trends. Why, the streets of “artist” neighborhood Williamsburg were flooded with mustached men in skinny jeans and girls who looked like American Apparel models long before these unfortunate looks trickled down to the masses. So what’s the next big craze? No, it’s not tie-dye (over before it began) or ironically Bedazzled denim: Behold, the beloved-from-childhood coonskin cap. On a recent expedition across the pond known as the East River, a group of brave Gawker reporters couldn’t walk the city streets without running into one of these bad boys. One guy explained that he was going for a “nouveau Johnny Cash-meets-Bono look” (omg), while a young lady cited the benefits of the tail, claiming she could wave it at people she thinks are “cute.” Let’s just hope the slowly warming weather nips this trend in the bud, hey? (Also, I am sorry to report that this is not an April Fool’s thing. At least, I don’t think so.) [Gawker] Keep reading »

Hipster Puppies Are, Like, Much Cooler Than You

From squeezing into jeans skinnier than any person should ever wear to looking like you totally don’t give a crap about anything and constantly searching out appropriately ironic accessories, being a hipster takes effort. Now imagine doing all of the above without opposable thumbs or the ability to sigh in mock, all-encompassing boredom. Challenging? Hell yeah, it is. Yet the dogs on Hipster Puppies manage it on the daily. There’s Chuleta (seen here) jealously guarding her turntable on the lighter side of things (as in maybe she just moved to Williamsburg but doesn’t yet own more than two pairs of functionless eyeglasses). Then there’s a more hardcore hipster puppy, like Alcor, who “begrudgingly explained to his mom that wearing girl’s jeans doesn’t make him gay.” Check out a group of dogs that definitely know they’re cooler than you but don’t need to say it ’cause, like, it’s so obvious. Or whatever. [Hipster Puppies] Keep reading »

Terry Richardson’s Hipsterfication Of Uggs?

So, too cool for school photographer Terry Richardson has a new blog, Terry’s Diary, on which he likes to post pictures of models, beautiful celebs, and other famous people you pretend to know of. Here’s a shot of Terry himself, seemingly tame until your eyes scroll down to his feet—UGGs. No! You can’t do that! Now you’ve gone and made UGGs ironic. And you know what that means, right? Fleece-lined booties coming to an American Apparel near you.

Resist, sweet followers of fashion, resist, I say! [TerrysDiary.com] Keep reading »

These Design-y Branding Irons Are Begging For A Hipster Following

In the past, branding irons have been for cowboys and dads who like to grill. With this customizable, handheld version, however, we could see it becoming a new hipster accessory. (Is that a Helvetica font to lure in the design junkies?) If you think about all the weird things hardcore hipsters do to their bodies already—DIY tattoos, safety pin piercings—branding doesn’t seem too far-fetched. So what words would the hip and stylish choose to sear onto their skin? The obvious answer would be the name of their latest favorite band. Some other thoughts range from the predictable to the typically ironic: Bklyn, WillyB, Get Rad, Dov, Mom, Meat, Vegan …

Coming soon to an American Apparel near you. (OK, not really, but can’t you kind of picture it in there?) [Shapeways.com] Keep reading »

Behold, The Hipster-Zoic Era

Paste Magazine has put together a genius spread, “Evolution of the Hipster,” detailing the ascent from The Emo to The Meta-Nerd. Having witnessed an embarrassing number of these stages, I’ve got to commend them on their accuracy. Especially for the evolution of accessories like American Spirits, beards and Sparks, the queen of alcohol-enhanced energy drinks. It’s tragic that it took a whole decade to discover and eschew so many mediocre things, like keffiyahs and trucker hats. Have hipsters run out of cultures to appropriate? What’s next? Do we start over with yuppies? I’ve got my fingers crossed for a hipster “Mad Men” phase that never ends. Back to Prohibition fashion! It’s time to put your new years predictions down for 2010, what’s the next evolutionary step for the hipster? Adulthood, maybe? [Paste Magazine] Keep reading »

Success! Hipsters Save Polaroid!

It’s been weighing heavily on many a hipster’s soul that one of their favored methods of capturing narcissism—the Polaroid camera—would come to a bitter end when Kodak announced that they would be stopping production of the product. Peeps were so upset that Urban Outfitters even launched a campaign with The Impossible Project, a group lobbying to bring Polaroid back. Keep reading »

Stuff Hipsters Hate

Everyone knows any self-respecting hipster (oxymoron?) loathes Starbucks and, like, working full-time, but until I started reading the blog, Stuff Hipsters Hate, I guess I didn’t quite realize there was so much else that drives them batty. Thankfully, hipsters hate so much stuff that the wickedly funny blog is not in danger of running out of things to cover any time soon. After the jump, nine things you may not realize get under hipsters’ (pale) skin.
