Abercrombie and Fitch sells cashmere cable knit sweaters for $130 while Juicy Couture will sell a cashmere argyle sweater for $250.. Now that's expensive for almost the same thing.
Abercrombie and Fitch jeans go for between $60-150 (for Ezra Fitch) on average.. SEVEN jeans go for between $120-500..
Abercrombie and Fitch is great quality, tasteful, and not as expensive as other people make it out to be... Especially for me because I get a 30% discount for working there, tehehe.
Okay I know it's kind of like a "cult".. In the back room where we keep all the clothes... There is a 20 second commercial on repeat, it says "Our jeans are undeniably sexy" OVER AND OVER AND OVER.. The only thing Abercrombie is trying to do is sell SEXY to us, everything is subliminally sexual, everything about the company and store.. Whatever, I think a lot of things aimed at the age group of 16-24 year olds uses sexual references to seem more appealing.
They also play the same 10 songs, OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER.. I actually sing them all day.

Hott Chick: I know, now let's make out! PAssionatly!
Hipsters and emo fans hate it because the conformity and perceived airheaded-ness of Abercrombie shoppers reminds them of what they try to avoid becoming, but end up as anyway.
Abercrombie shoppers may not be the most original or stylish people in the world, but neither are you.
Note: I don't wear Abercrombie; I just find that bashing people's preference in clothing to be shallow and petty. Wear what you want.
"friend": "yea, i know, look at them all and their expensive clothes, i hate them because they wear them, why can't they be individuals like us...by the way, i like your black shirt and pants, they look just like mine."
Non-A&F Person: Because it's the cool thing to do.
