A store that all the trend followers that don't have the balls to be different shop at. Their main clothing topic is clothing that is pre-worn out, pre-ripped, pre-stained, etc...
Basically, a bunch of spoiled rich queers pay extra to look poor

AE would be the clearance rack at Abercrombie if they had a clearance rack. Everything says something either about California or a Varsity sport. This store is for the prep that can't afford Lacoste, Polo or a real designer brand
Gucci shopper 1: "Hey look at that! It appears that Trina is an official prep wannabe".
Gucci shopper 2: "Trina can't afford Abercrombie so she has to go to AE. How pathetic is that? I would rather wear nothing than an AE shirt".

1. symbol that represents the USA

2. clothing store for anyone who can't afford abercrombie or just doesn't have one around, Funny story- this shit's made in India, not to mention it only costs 5 dollars there. so the moral is sell it to the stupid americans who will buy it for 5 times the price
wierd, its called AMERICAN eagle.
Let's go try to find that shirt i saw in abercrombie in american eagle, cuz i cant afford it there

American Eagle is basically abercrombie but for less money. American eagle suddenly seemed to explode after their sucessful marketing in 2004. American eagle is generally bought by people who aren't cool enough to feel comfortable in hollister or abercrombie.
OMG i'm not cool enough to shop at hollister so i'll settle with american eagle

Clothing for pre-teens and teens who whine incessantly to mommy and daddy to buy them clothing that is already worn out. Usually favored by middle and high school posers who want desperately to "fit in". ; A cheaper alterative for those who can't buy the equally horrible Abecrombie.
"But Mommy, all the cool kids wear AE, can I PLEEEEAAAAASE get the over-priced worn out t-shirt that looks like it came from a garage sale?"
