a dumbass prep store that tries WAYY too hard to be like abercrombie, american eagle, etc. they make their clothes so unbelievably cheap that you can fricken buy 20 for $2.00. also, most of their clothing is sized wayy too big so even the fattest person would be an extra-small or a small; and the shirt would still be too big for THEM! no one i know shops there.
angelina: *looks at melanie's new abercrombie outfit* omg why don't you just shop at aero? that's where i shop!! their shirts are like one dollar each and they're like made wayy better than anyone else's clothes!
melanie: *looks at angelina's really small figure and sees her shirt so big it could be a nightshirt* eww i hate aero. i got my little sister's birthday present there and i was the oldest person in the god damn store. i'll never consider going there for anything again.

First I just want to say if people have nothing to do then bash Aeropostale then maybe you should go get a life. Second how can you say Aeropostale is a store for prep wannabes when that’s basically what A&F and AE are. Although you can find many preppy items at these stores they are not preppy. The real prep brands are Polo Ralph Lauren, Lacoste, IZOD, Lily Pulitzer, Brooks Brothers, Patagonia, etca. Being preppy is not going to Abercrombie and buying a $40 XS shirt that makes you look like a skank it’s about dressing nicely and being classic and conservative. Aeropostale is just another teen retailer that sells stylish clothes for good prices.
Aeropostale is a clothing store for teens that offers good quality and style for lower prices than A&F and AE.

Despite the juvenile monkeys and butterflies, Aeropostale has good quality clothing for half the price of American Eagle or Abercrombie and Fitch. It is, by no means, a 'wannabe prep store'; it is a store for people who like their fashionable and comfortable aparrel and have more sense than to waste money on a worse quality, over-priced Abercrombie shirt. Just because someone shops at Aeropostale doesn't mean they are too poor to afford clothes elsewhere, it just means that they are excersizing some practicality in the way of clothes-buying instead of spending frivilously like the majority of today's youth.
Stephanie: Want to go to Aeropostale today?
Courtney: No way, that store is for like wannabes who like can't afford Abercrombie like us but still want to be all like cool and stuff.
Stephanie: Yeah, I guess you're right.

The truth of the matter is that these girls are developing superior attitudes to those who merely want comfortable clothes that will not make them fall into debt. For them, evidently, money grows on trees, so they have nothing to worry about. However, not all people are this fortunate and would rather save their money for a more important cause and will settle for cute, appropriate clothes.

An affordable prep store with nice clothes at good prices

I'm sick and tired of all you people bashing aeropostale just because it is the cheapest of the prep stores. I shop at aeropostale and have some shirts from ae. I can't stand to have to listen to you kids say that hollister and a and f are so much better just because they cost more. i mean why the hell would i want to go to a and f and spend $50 on a single shirt when i could go to aero and get 5 for that same price. i don't know about you but i like getting the most out of my money. also all you people talk about how a and f and hollister are made out of higher quality materials. give me a break, none of you people have any idea of what a high quality material is and you know it. do me a favor and take a look at the tag in your $50 shirt and tell me what it says. i bet you its made out of cotton and the shirt was probably made in tailand with all the rest of the shirts made by everyone else. so just because you spend more money on shits than me doesn't make any better of a person than i am and you think it does than that is really sad and you need to get a life. if all you kids do is bash aero all day than you are really the pathetic ones because you have nothing better to do with your lives.
Aeropostale and you people need to accept it, just because the other stores are more expensive doesn't make them better and you people need to realize that.

"I Love My Daddy"
My daughters wear these shirts and when I asked them what it means they have no idea. As their father I thought it important that I should understand what it means since they wear so many of these shirts so I looked it up online and found no meaningful definition. Since so many people wear these clothes and they look nice the word should have a meaningful definition so I've created one. From now on, Aéropostale now means "I Love My Daddy".
I know my daughters love me because they are always wearing their Aéropostale shirts.

Apparently not prep, but more of a Prep Lite. (I'd never be able to tell the difference, but whatevs. :))

It's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Not exactly my style, but it's got some cute shirts, especially if you're into pastels and glittery cartoon turtles. I'm not, but there's no accounting for taste.

Aeropostale an awesome store that is ALOT cheaper than Abercrombie. (I have nothing against Abercrombie tho except that they are pretty expensive) If you shop there it doesn't mean you're a poser, or you're poser, it means you've got taste but you're not going to pay $35 for a shirt that will fall apart the day you put it in the wash. Aeropostale shirts last for years. SO YOU'RE NOT POOR IF YOU SHOP THERE!!!!
Girl 1: Hey lets go to Aeropostale this weekend.
Girl 2: Ok, then we can buy 2 shirts for like what they charge at Abercrombir for one!!

1. a group or "flock" of preps who share similar values and over pay for brightly coloured clothing bearing the "aeropostale" logo. they are occasionally seen wearing other brand names such as holister or abercrombie. aeropostales can usually be found around the volleyball court, flirting with teachers, listening to radio music or flinching at dirty jokes
"Look, there go the aeropostales!"

"Woah, they exist outside the mall?!"
