Who Says Tubular Anymore?
Like most social groups, Hipsters have their own way of communicating. They converse using special terms and lingo to show they are in the know. Being up on the latest slang is essential to being a Hipster.

Though it may be humorous to tell someone that his or her Pumas are "tubular," utilizing a dated term such as this can be a serious faux pas if not used ironically. Retro terms such as "grody," "bofu," "fresh," and "wicked" all work well when with a tongue-in-cheek, but such words should be used sparingly.

We recommend you take a quick peek at our glossary of terms, to educate yourself on the lingo. With a little practice, we will help you turn an awkward sentence like, "I'm gonna look bitchin' in my groovy jacket," into the much hipper "I'll polish in my deck flogger."
