I agree there is some people out there that do, use a&f, and hollister as a way to do that, but not every one who shops there does it for that reason. Some people shop there because they like the style. Personally i see it from all sides i shop every where if something looks good on me i buy it, and yess a&f and hollister are some of my favorite stores. But i also like hot topic and sure walmart once in a while. i dont care all stores are great. And you can weigh over 110, im pretty sure the models all weight over 110. i know i do. im 119. I think this whole deal with the brands is crazy, shop at what ever stores you want and where ever you want.
(hollister, abercrombie & fitch)
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!!"
