elitist can mean a lot of things, but here I'm using it to describe a person who thinks they (or something they do) is better than others because of their social or financial status. People didn't like your friend's fit and you justified it by saying you all met in the real world at fashion week in paris or milan or wherever. I simply don't understand why people feel a need to do that. Or that the dude doesn't look totally out of place wearing that shit given his lifestyle and isn't into fashion because he's a nerd on the internet (like most of the people here) but is actually like, part of the scene. It's the difference between dressing like hipster scum if you're an artist living in an illegal trailer park out in bushwick vs. dressing like hipster scum when you're an NYU freshman.
