eatablished in early 1900's took current form (casual clothing) in 1977 (note: that is why many of their items have "77" on them)
by this time Abercrombie and Fitch was still a sporting goods store and then started selling clothes in 1988.. :::comments??

Only THE coolest store you can go to in the mall. Not only does it sell quality clothes at a reasonable price! You can get jeans there for $29.95... that's a decent price for name brand jeans..
Mollie: OMG Ashley, I just got a pair of jeans for $25! How awesome!
Ashley: Why didn't you get me a pair?

a store that people like to talk shit about, apparently.

their clothes are cute, a lot of the time. they're not the best made clothes in the universe, but they're not bad either. they can be a little more than i can afford sometimes, but if that's the case, there's always the clearance rack.

really, when it comes down to it, they're just clothes. you're probably missing out on meeting a lot of cool people if you judge people by what they wear
"oh my god, look, that girl is wearing american eagle. she thinks she's preppy, but really she just can't afford abercrombie and fitch"

"um, really? who cares."

American Eagle (AE, A&E, AEO) is a popular teen clothing store. Its competitors are Abercrombie and Fitch, Hollister Co., and Aeropostale. Out of these stores, American Eagle is the 2nd most affordable clothing with Aeropostale ranking as the cheapest.

Many people think that only rich preps and posers shop there to fit in at school, but a lot of people(who definitely are not rich) shop there because they actually like the clothes. AE provides great clothes at an affordable price (that is, when it is on the clearance section). Anyone besides 'preps' can shop here also!

The trick to shopping at A&E without paying such an expensive price is to shop at the clearance section at the store or online. It is possible to get 10 items for 100 bucks, which really is not bad.

Con: Since a lot of people shop here, it's hard to be unique and some styles are similar to Hollister, AF and Aero..
Nemo: Hey, I like your shirt! Where'd you get it from?
Dory: I got it from american eagle for 7 bucks!
Nemo: Nice! It looks better than my 8 dollar shirt that says 'old navy' all over it! Maybe I'll shop there next time!

A real great clothing store. They sell very cute and casual clothes.
Personally i like AE more than Hollister because Hollister just seem too beach bummy..theres holes in everything and the clothes dont seem to fit anyone in the :large: catagory,But AE fits everyone and has different types of clothing not only for preps. if you walk into the store they play a wide variety of music.
Oh, and their models actually show the clothing...not their bodies haha.
I've been shopping at AE for 5 years(before it was popular) and they have not changed their comfy casual clothing. My all-time favorite store.
And for those who hate American Eagle just because its popular...try on a shirt...theres a reason this place is so popular :]
i like the american eagle clearance rack ahaha

The best freaking store in the whole world. Some people don't like it. Some think its the awesomest store ever. Just depends on who you are. And what day it is. I could go into American Eagle one day and then the next day go into Hot Topic. Just depends on who you are.
OMG!!! I just got my first pair of skinnys(see second def.) from American Eagle!!
