A popular clothing store among many teenagers and young adults, Abercrombie & Fitch have popularized many trends such as pre-ripped jeans and popped collars. While not being the most original clothing line, Abercrombie targets a young audience and does not have to ride the coat-tails of a particular music genre or lifestyle to make its money.
While being look at as the cocky jocks and the airhead cheerleaders, the truth is that Abercrombie wearers are predominately the more popular and attractive section of the 15-21 population.
Abercrombie skeptics are usually people that fall into the "scene" cliche` where they act like they are so originial, regardless of the fact they too wear pre-ripped jeans and popped collars from other stores while fashioning themselves in tattoos of obscure cartoons and spiders. These individuals are the same ones who were the shit-heads in high school who barely graduated and now work at your town gas station.
Most of these haters are emo jerkoffs and skaters who will complain about the price of this clothing and then will go and buy a pair of woman's jeans. Merely a sense of sour grapes, they will say the kids must be rich and spoiled to wear these clothes, when in fact, maybe they have jobs and don't waste their cash on reefer and new trucks for their skateboards.
Emo kid 1: "Man, 'jocks' and 'Abercrombie-fags' are so gay...."
Emo kid 2:" Sometimes I cut myself so I can truely feel pain..."
Emo kid 3:"Let's go skateboard or hackey-sack and be Xtreme!"
A store that was formed in 1892 as a hunting supply/surplus company. Is now a clothing store popular on college campuses and high schools. More expensive than most other clothing stores, (Gap, American Eagle, Old Navy, etc.) yet people still pay for it. Also owns two stores targeted at elementary/middle school-aged kids: abercrombie (all lower case) and Hollister Co.
, which is supposed to have a California/surfer image. Love it or hate it, it isn't going to go anywhere for a while.
I used to hate this store because everyone wore it, but then I pulled my head out of my ass and realized that they're just clothes.
A store that makes a majority of it's sales off of near pornographic advertisement and the false promise of higher quality materials in their clothing. A majority of this clothing is made in China and India, while it is designed in the United States. The clothes are very inexpensive to make, as the materials and wages per average item cost around $8.00. Reports of child labor have been proven false by FBI investigations in Southeast Asia, but it has been verified that the labor conditions are harsh, and the average wage of workers has been established at 75% below the national standard. (In other words, $1.29 an hour.) This clothing store is generally associated with the higher classes, but can also be found sported by lower classes, who feel inclined to shop there in order to fit in with those above them on the financial ladder. In summary, the claims of higher quality material and manufacture made by Abercrombie and Fitch are unfounded. People must admit that they are buying a label and simply that. The same is true for A + F's subsidiary company Hollister Co, though Hollister is not under fire for obscene advertisement. Those who choose to shop at Abercrombie or Hollister may do as they wish, however they should not feel entitled to superior treatment as there are millions of people with superior clothing brands who are at this very moment, laughing their asses off at the unfounded arrogance of most A + F shoppers. For those A + F shoppers out there who cant think of th...more...
I don't wear it, but I've got nothing against it.
You pseudo goth whiners need to chill out about labeling people snobs and bitches because the shop at a particular store. I could turn that same logic around and say that everyone who shops at Hot Topic is a talentless, whiny, wanna be rocker. Or emo.
They made thongs for 10 year olds.
Excuse me while I choke on my own vomit.
Why the fuck did Abercrombie & Fitch think 10 year olds would wear thong panties? And what kind of parents actually buy them for their daughters?
An overpriced clothing store that markets to young teens and college kids. Most of the clothes are pre wrinkled and torn. For some reason, nothing ever fits right because the store only wants people who are really buff(guys) or twig-like(girls) to wear their clothes. There is often a giant blown up picture of a male model who is not wearing any Abercrombie & Fitch clothes or any clothes at all. The store is so expensive that it even makes me feel bad when my dad buys me something from there.
Guy 1: "Do you like my new Abercrombie & Fitch jeans"?
Guy 2: "Yeah, but they're so torn!"
Guy 1: "I know!, I payed $200 for them."
Guy 2: "Awesome, wanna makeout?"
Guy 1: "Sure!"
A generally overpriced clothing store that sells shirts so thin you can spit through them as well as jeans that are so ripped they look like they could have come out of a dumpster.
If you shop there and weigh over 110 pounds, people will look at you like you're a pudgy freak and you'll develop such a severe eating disorder that you'll end up weighing around sixty five pounds - but hey, you'll look "good."
This store has spawned such abominations as Hollister and "abercrombie" - the kiddie store that sells little lacy thongs for your ten-year-old sister. So cute!
Generally, the guys and chicks that shop there are little trend-followers that will hook onto a style and suckle it until it's as dry as a bone, then move on to the next pathetic trend. They claim A&F has "quality" no other store has, but this is untrue. It is entirely possible to get a nice pair of jeans for, say, thirty dollars, and - here's a novel idea - RIP THEM YOURSELF. Those that shop there often also have an "I'm so much higher-up than you because I can shop as some WASP-y store!" attitude, usually unfounded, as most of those who chose not to shop there are trying not to conform to a cult that will date their closet to "I SHOPPED IN THE 2000s!" Those who shop at stores such as A&F and Hollister are screaming inwardly, "I'm a walking billboard for a fucking clothing store! Go me!" and are generally the poster human beings for birth control.
Not to mention the amount of perfume and cologne...
Or Aryancrombie and Fitch, is a place where you find the whitest, blondest, fakest people possible working there.
A place where you buy, for about $50, a t-shirt that is thin enough to see through and has been ripped. A lot. Before you buy it and do it yourself. Same for jeans.
A place that makes you laugh at the absurdity of it all.
"Hey guys, look! They're opening up a new Abercrombie & Fitch store!"
"Ooooooooo, Caucasia-wear!! Let's go!!Aryancrombie, here we come!!"
