Abercrombie is a store like all others. Its just one of the more upscale mall stores. It's less expensive sister store Hollister targets the West Coast audience. With its bright colors and surf appeal.
Abercrombie on the other hand is designed for the East Coast preps. With a majority of their clothes being navys, gray and whites their motto is casual luxury.
Which it is.
The Chanel of the mall; Abercrombie sells its clothes at a higher price then most other mall stores such as American Eagle and Aeropostale.
Abercrombie also targets a smaller sized audience.
American Eagle and Aeropostale's sizes run bigger and come boxey-er that Abercrombie which makes their clothing long and lean. Many people dislike Abercrombie for just that. But, this is unnecessary. There is no reason to complain about Abercrombie's lack of large sizes and expensive clothes. If you have a problem; just don't shop there.
Many also find it degrading that Abercombie only hires workers that are attractive as their models. This is because they are models in a sense. They're hired not only to provide assistance to customers but to also show those same customers how Abercrombie's clothes look on. They're attractive because the models are attractive.
Because that's what Abercrombie targets.
The college student who is a toned, tanned beauty.
Though, most customers are actually middle and high school students.
Many people don't like Abercombie because of its mentality of wealthy, beautiful preps. Because it is for skinny rich people.
Well, take it somewhere else. Getting angry about a store is stupid. It's not like its really offending you. So maybe you can't shop there because you're too big. Well, they have stores for just big people and nobody gets all pissed at them. It's because people are jealous.
People also think people who shop at Abercrombie are label obsessed. Because they're able to afford 75 dollar jeans with the signature abercrombie design on the back pockets. Or, the moose stitched to each shirt.
Well, maybe they are. People today like identities. Those who shop at Abercrombie do it because they like the way the clothes look and feel; and they're proud of it so they show it off by the Abercrombie emblems. And maybe they are wealthy skinny people. But,just because they are and just because they shop there, doesn't mean they're snobs or think less of those who can't shop there.
Everyone needs to leave Abercrombie and its loyal customers alone. Get a new hobbie.
Maybe you could attack Hot Topic for selling clothes for emo people. Or Torrid for only selling plus sizes.
God, clothes give people identities. And they're about who YOU are.
Each store sells to meet peoples needs.
So please, just leave Abercrombie alone.
Armani Girl/Boy: "Look that girl in her abercrombie & fitch capris! What a bunch of jack-ass poor people trying to look rich. I wouldn't be caught dead in one of those crappy stores, I'd probably get mugged or something..."
Prada Girl/Boy: "Look at that girl in her Armani Exchange capris! Thinks she is all bad ass or something! What a stupid dumb-ass, always trying to compete with the truly rich, why cant poor people just admit that they are poor and dress the part?"
See? The list goes on...
I don't wear it, but I've got nothing against it.
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!"
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 sprayed in the air there is enough to send anyone with allergies who shops there into apocalyptic shock, and the clothes you buy there come out smelling like you just got spilled into a dunk-tank full of skunk fumes.
In conclusion, those who shop at Abercrombie & Fitch are dated, smelly billboards. What are you gonna do about it - pop your collar at me?
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.
"Ooooooooo, Caucasia-wear!! Let's go!!Aryancrombie, here we come!!"
