According to some, all it takes to be a part of the hipster subculture is to wear plaid shirts and Rayban sunglasses and drink Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. For others, it means gentrification, cultural elitism or insincerity, and the over-use of irony. But here is something that most of us can probably agree upon – these are some of the most hipster images ever.

0Some may even argue that hipster style is a paradox – what happens to a group of people who hate all things mainstream when the hipster things themselves become mainstream?

For all the different ways that people see or define hipsters and their hipster fashions, we’re sure that you’ll all find some sort of common ground among these interesting photos. Inspired by another list that was compiled largely from cool things out of Imgur, we collected some more images that we thought were intensely hipsterish.
