The Hipster

DISCLAIMER: For information purposes only. I am not implying that anyone here is a hipster, nor am I casting any judgement on anyone who may be. I cannot and will not deny that we have taken digs at this label a couple of times. (Check out How Hipsters Stole the Geek Mojo and Geeks Versus Hipsters.)

For whatever reason that can be plausible at the slightest, I thought that this infographic would interest you. Titled “The Hipster Owner’s Manual”, it gives a rather detailed account of the accessories that a decent hipster has to have in his or her arsenal.

Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Boombox
  • Bicycle
  • Mustache (I suppose you can pass up on this if you are a woman. Then again, I have seen some women sporting what could be a mustache.)
  • Polaroid
  • iPhone (The brand is specific, mind you.)
  • Badges
  • Converse
  • Tobacco
  • Ski Vest
  • Nintendo (Old school!)
  • 80s watch
  • Shutter shades

For a more “in-depth” explanation of why these accessories are essential items in a hipster’s kit, take a look at the infographic below. Click for a larger view.

So what do you think? Is that an accurate list? How many items can you tick off? Does that mean you’re a hipster? ;)

  1. I wear an “80’s watch” and I own a bicycle (although I’ve had it for three years and I’ve only ridden it twice). Those are the only two items I can tick off.
