Tipsters (Tips for Hipsters) #1: Winter Apparel
Hello literate scenesters et al. I have some wintertime advice for you.
Remember, now that winter has almost officially arrived and the weather continues to turn colder, many people who aren't hipsters will start wearing scarves. No longer is it safe to assume that you may strike a conversation about Times New Viking with someone simply because he is wearing a scarf. He may actually be wearing the accessory in order to warm his neck. This can be very confusing! Be sure to check for other telltale hipster signs before beginning your superbly-rehearsed criticism of Spencer Krug's latest endeavor.
If you do find yourself mistakenly approaching someone who doesn't religiously check Pitchfork, you can easily recover by belittling the person in anyway possible. The most important thing is to not allow anyone to notice that you made a mistake, as this would suggest that you are fallible.
