I was still under the impression that they were a type of trouser

Hipsters.

Ok, I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and as far as I can tell, a “hipster” is:

1) Someone who does something I don’t like.

2) Someone who does something I used to like.

3) Someone who does something I like, but I don’t like the way they do it.

4) Someone who does something I like, but I don’t like why they do it.

5) Someone who does something I like, but I don’t like them, so I don’t want them to do it.

6) Men who wear hats. (nb – not to be confused with Men Without Hats)

7) Woman who wear glasses.

8) People who wear clothes.

9) Anyone at any time, anywhere.

Right, I think that’s it. Carry on.
