Top definition
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 these brands, try these on for size: (Armani Exchange, Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani, Gianni Versace, Prada, Gucci, Chanel, Fendi, Mark Jacobs, Dior, Pucci, Missoni.... and the list goes on. So next time A + F shoppers feel like snubbing someone for wearing less expensive clothing than them, realize that there is always someone better than you, and that they are looking down on you in the exact same way....
A+F Girl/Boy: "Look at that girl in her Wal-Mart capris! Oh my god, I would never even be seen in a Wal-Mart with all that poor trash!"

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...

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?

Clothing Brand.

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.

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 casual, lifestyle clothing brand. Either discriminated against or loved. There is no compromise. 'Individuals', 'goths', 'emos', 'skaters' usually hate A&F due to it's over-priced and plain clothing. Also, there is a growing dislike for the thumping 'media-driven shit' being played in the shop. Many people such as 'preps', 'jocks', 'bimbos', 'posers' wear A&F. I do not agree with any of the terms in inverted commas, but merely repeating commonly used stereotypes. I personally have a few A&F products, and Hollister but not because i want to 'fit in' or 'be popular', but because i saw it in the shop and decided I liked it. Big deal? Don't think so. I wear what I want to wear, regardless of the make, label, design or colour. A&F is a clothing make, not an excuse to hate. If I saw a goth i wouldn't immediately deduce that he/she listens to metal or slits their wrists? So what gives other people the right to judge A&F wearers?
Person 1- Oh my god. Why are you wearing Abercrombie & Fitch? You're just trying to fit in with the in-style crowd, why not be an individual for fuck sake, dress to your own satisfactions. Conformity is the basis of high school

Person 2 - I bought it because it was in a sale and I like it, i wear whatever I want, not everyone who wears A&F is a poser man.

Person 1 - Sorry man, *shake hands*
