AE would be the clearance rack at Abercrombie if they had a clearance rack. Everything says something either about California or a Varsity sport. This store is for the prep that can't afford Lacoste, Polo or a real designer brand

Gucci shopper 2: "Trina can't afford Abercrombie so she has to go to AE. How pathetic is that? I would rather wear nothing than an AE shirt".
