Can you identify which hipster you are? | Clothing - our own; jewellery by FEMMEX
Skinny jeans, check. Instagram at the ready, check. Owner of obscure handmade eyewear (sunglasses counts), check. Bespoke coffee order, is there any other way?
Yeah, you know who you are, Mr/Ms-too-cool-for-your-jauntily-positioned-fedora – you’re a hipster, even if you don’t sport cool facial hair or have an underground film project in the works.
While we know you hate to be labelled or grouped together (because you are your own authentic self), it’s time to proclaim your bona fide hipster status because if you don’t, the hipster may soon go the way of the dinosaurs – then what would happen to all the coffee grinders of the world?
Still confused what defines a hipster? Listen to what Yvan Rodic aka The Facehunter (win a signed copy of his book here) has to say about it and take our quiz (below) to find out what shade of hipster you are.

Definitely not a hipster
We would almost call you (nicely) aunty or uncle but there’s something inherently cool about your unabashed un-hipness. You keep things real, your milk full fat and your food unfancy. Read on for inspiration – who knows what you may discover.
Before Haji Lane and Tiong Bahru got all hip, hipster-ville was Holland Village. But that was pre-2000 and you, and all the aging hipsters, are probably still milling about there with their poetry books and vinyls.
If you’re horrified and want to get out of hipster-dom, these should help.
