What is it with everyone’s obsession of the hipster “culture”?! I seriously thought it was old news, but apparently not. And here we are, seeing hipsters everywhere… so, without further ado, here are the tell-all signs you’re suffering from hipster obsession.

If every time you see a man (or woman, let’s not discriminate here) with a beard, you think hipster. Which might result in your thinking there is a hipster attack on your local mosque, you’re suffering.

Big glasses. Yes, yes, every short-sighted person in the world should move to Shoreditch, or Brooklyn… Or just get eye laser surgery.

Watching anything remotely old, hearing songs from before the turn of the millennium or reading anything that hasn’t yet been made into a movie makes you think you’ve “turned”. Oh, and, what’s up Oliver Twist?!

Your grandma’s love of knitting seems very suspicious.

In case you were wondering, the ONLY real sign you just bumped into a hipster is if there is a fixie bike in the vicinity. I mean, what is the point of those?!

No idea what Time Magazine is talking about when one of its articles in 2009 described hipsters as thus: “take your grandmother’s sweater and Bob Dylan’s Wayfarers, add jean shorts, Converse All-Stars and a can of Pabst and bam — hipster.”

Congratulations! You’ve lived in a cave all your life. (And I would very much like to meet anyone who doesn’t own at least one of these items…)
