Body paragraphs explore the essence of hipsters
Last body paragraph and conclusion comes up with an answer to beginning question
Analyzes the criteria of hipsters
Image and personality of hipsters
"How admiration for art, appreciation of music, even taste in food, came about for different groups, and how 'superior' taste was not the result of an enchanted superiority in scattered individuals"

Hide their background with what they wear.
