Hollister Co. is a crappy store that makes evryone who shops there feel like crap. Normal girls cant barley even fit there because they are not skinny enough. It's a store where there is smaller than small but not larger than large. They make people feel bad about there looks and their sizings are all wrong.If you arent a size small its like they are saying "your not good enough to shop here". Plus they are really expensive.You better be anorexic to shop there.
average sized girl- "I wear a size med. in every other store but I can't even fit in Hollister Co.!"

Company owned by Abercrombie and Fitch that is taken off of the actual city, Hollister, California. (I would know, I live here...)
Cheaper than Abercrombie, still hella expensive, but honestly-- who gives a damn?

If you're really that materialistic to be caring what other people are wearing, then you have serious issues. Let the people wear what they effing want to wear. Do I wear Hollister? Not particularly. Do some of my friends shop there? Yes. Do I care? No. Should I? No. If I find something cute that I like there that doesn't cost too much should I get it? Yes.

Honestly people. They're JUST CLOTHES! I can't believe you people are discriminate of people because of their clothes. How effing retarded can you get?
Stupid emo kid that hates everyone and everything: "Oh my gawd, what a lame ass. They're wearing HOLLISTER..."
Real Person: "...and...?"
Stupid emo kid: "WHAT A LOSER!"
Real Person: "...and you care, why?"
Stupid emo kid: "Because! They shop there!"
Real Person: "O...kay..."
Stupid emo kid: *runs off crying* "I hate Hollister people! WAAAAH!!!"
Real Person: "...moving on...!"

A semi-expensive west coast version of A&F store where people of all backgrounds go shopping. and they DO hire people of different backgrounds. im not a prep and dont act like one, but i shop there because i adore the clothes. its pure opinion, you dont have to to be a dumb blonde to shop there.

A brand that people who say they don't care about clothes hate... And the same people who "don't judge based on appearance" hate anyone who wears Hollister or Abercrombie. Its interesting that you can have your own styles and yet it apparently makes you a bitch to shop at hollister. Did you know that fasion is considered an art form? It is in the metripolitan museam of art: "Fashion." So why can't people care about what they wear and that includes wearing whatever clothes they want to: vintage shops, goodwill, target, nordstrom, zoomiez, pacsun, ae, abercrombie, hollister, urban outfitters, ann taylor, thisisit, small boutiques, ANYTHING. And people have a right not to be stereotyped for what they wear, and that includes people who wear Hollister.
"I dont care about what people wear... unless they wear hollister or abercrombie: then I hate them!!!"

(is there a contradiction there?)

A store owned by Abercrombie and fitch which tailors to the "surfer" image. They sell their shirts tight, their shorts big, and all of it is just a bit less expensive than Abercrombie and Fitch. They have some nice stuff- their jeans and shorts and shirt are durable, and most everything I own from their is very comfortable to wear. They do cater to guys and glas who like to keep good care of themselves, but I don't know a single girl or guy who shops at Hollister and is gay. The Gay ones that I know all shop at Urban outfitters, Gap and Banana Republic.
Guy: I like this polo. A&F has one like it for 20 bucks more.

Girl: I like this skirt. Who cares if someone doesn't? I'm not the one dressing them.

owned by abercrombie&fitch to emulate southern california. slightly cheaper than its parent company, but still the same price as costly all black wear from hot topic, who is owned by GAP(who is also grouped with banana republic and old navy) Workers are typically young, attractive, slightly snobby kids who (before being hired) must have a sense of fashion. A higher quality alternative to its direct competitors (american eagle, the buckle, etc.)
shirt, jeans, belt and flip flops @ HCO = $130.00

shirt, overisized pants, metal belt, black doc martins, trench coat and multiple chains and rings to make you look "scary" and gothic when you're really a puss = $250.00+

A store found in most malls across America that is owned by the slightly more expensive Abercrombie. The style is more laid back and casual compared to it's peppy counterpart. Some of the prices are absurd to say the least, however if you like a shirt then I'm sure you can wait until it goes on clearance (it doesn't mean your poor, it's about saving money). Some of the clothes sold there have "HOLLISTER CO. CALIFORNIA" plastered on them, others have a very classy touch with just a small label on them. Their label is a seagull in various colors depending on the shade of the garment. Personally, I prefer both kinds of the attire. But that's just me :)

Middle schools in the midwest (Kansas, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois) are the top sellers of the apparel. Ironically, California is one of the least popular hollister co. states. In the top selling states, most kids sport the obnoxious advertisment instead of the much more subtle shirts. Jeans found in the stores are usually light colored, pre-ripped, and EXPENSIVE. You can get the exact (if not better) quality of cloth at Aeropostale on sale for less than $10.

Another ironic point is that most of the shoppers there have no drivers license, therefore they usually have to bring a parent in with them to the stores. The "cool" aspect of the stores is that they have music to hurt your ears and darkness all around with the exception of dim yellow lights on stands which hold the clothing. The majority of adults do. not. enjoy. this. So they forbid some kids to shop there. Go figure.
Girl: I found this cool shirt at hollister co.!
Girl 2: Wow you conform to a cookie cutter image you should be asha-
Girl: Umm... so what do you spend YOUR money on? Hot topic clothes? That doesn't make you better than me.

Mom: GOD why the hell is this music so damn loud?!?!
Girl: I don't know.
Mom: I can't see a damn thing!

Hollister Co. is a clothing line brought to you by Abercrombie & Fitch. The Hollister store is all about setting and imagery. Every store entrance is sheltered by a small spanish tile roof that appears to have been weathered over the years of tropical storms, and the golden bake of the sun.
Stores are filled with tropical florals, mostly palmish faux plants that give you the feeling of being whisked away to a far off place with sandy beaches and good times. Depending on the season the store always has a fresh aroma hovering over its apparel giving off a sense of lush cleanliness and exclusivity.
The lighting is dim inside the surfer hut where various clothing items are emblazened with golden spot lighting. A plethera of pop culture magazines and happy go lucky albums are lined in small cubby's along the front of the counter, and surf boards are hung behind the cashiers on the sea blue wooden tounge and groove walls.
Loud music plays throughout, and there are plenty of plump leather arm chairs to sit in simply to relax and enjoy the experience. The seating area closely resembles a seating arangement in a cabin around a warm fire, with plush plaid blankets flung over worn leather chairs and aged southwestern rugs strategically placed along the painted hardwood floors.
Hollister Co. is a personal get away, where you can experience the feel of coastal culture in your own suburban backyard. Just a few minutes in the store will give you the feeling that you've just reached your vacation destination where you can let loose and enjoy the layed back life style.
All of the clothing items have a worn in weathered look to them like they've all been hand washed with nothing more than sea foam and a bar of hand soap. With truly unique fittings and styles... Hollister tends to be a trend setter when it comes to lifestyle clothing brands. All clothing is made of top notch material for durability and quality.
Some are turned off more by the staff than by the actual company itself. Hollister advertises a certain youthful sexiness that sadly attracts a less than humble crew to stock shelves and stand around idly in self absortion while you roam around in the store and soak it up for yourself. However, if you can see past the mild sense of vanity that plagues the staffers... you will most likely find that Hollister is a quite enjoyable place for the youthful shopper.
Hollister Co.
(Me:) "Why does everyone on here have cheesy cliche jokes in the form of dialogue?"
(Me:) "You people aren't really that funny or original. Please quit your day jobs and go back to joke school."
