Clothes that make one feel like hot shit

This is a clothing store that provides cool clothes, but people think its way too expensive. Too bad your guys heads are stuck up too far in your ass's to see that other stores just might be more expensive!
cool kid: Hey! Look at the cool jeans that I got from Abercrombie! They were only $20!

Roomate: Wait, I paid $50 for a pair of pants from Hot Topic! What a rip-off!

A store that charges roughly the income of a small third world country for a garment made for 13 cents in a sweatshop in Guatemala.

Bought mostly for a large and always prominent moose that makes the wearer feel extra special. Also, tee shirts usually include witticisms that sound eerily pretentious and slutty or just the words ABERCROMBIE where everyone can see them. Sometimes "New York" is written on the said shirts, even though Abercrombie's headquarters are somewhere in Ohio.
Buying jeans at Abercrombie overcompensates for my lack of friends an individuality. My confidence comes from these dirty looks that must be "envious stares" of my overpriced shirt that's already falling apart and tacky pre-ripped jeans that make me look homeless. Pity me.

A store that in their pictures, their models dont even wear the clothes that their trying to sell.

Very expensive.

Made fun of for being "Preppy"
"In Abercrombie, a shirt pants and belt costs like $150.00"

"Did you see That girl she was wearing abercrombie from head to toe, shes so preppy!"

Prototypical mall store for the middle/upper class WASP and/or preppy. Unfortunately, Abercrombie isn't just a store, but more of a national phenomena now thanks to popularity on TV shows such as Laguna Beach and The Hills. Known as a haven for stuck up, Tanorexics with fake designer bags and huge sunglasses. Abercrombie uses a very effective ad campaign which targets the reality show generation of trendy whores and faux-hawk sporting douchebags.

All of their clothes consist of a "worn" and fake vintage look which makes insecure teens feel like part of the "in" crowd without even having to try. Alternatively, hordes of abercrombie polo-wearing douchebags can be spotted at bars across the nation trying to pick up on anything with a pair of tits by acting in a loud and obnoxious manner. This is usually quite humorous because Abercrombie's ads consist of blatantly homo erotic pornography.

Abercrombie is seen as a drain on our cultural society, because it provides a uniform for what the corporate mainstream deems "cool" and acceptable. Abercrombie wearing people are usually the first to stick their noses up at anyone with even a hint of individuality. Their clothes are often seen as blatant hypocrisy because even though, despite being fairly expensive, they come with a pre-distressed or ripped design, which could be easily duplicated on one's own, or by finding a similar product at a thrift store. In other words, uncreative people need a store to make their clothes "unique" for them.

Abercrombie is often hated on by the Hot Topic crowd, because of culture clashing, but Hot Topic employs the same marketing strategy, only to a different social subculture.

Although Abercrombie clothes are relatively boring, and forgettable, they are not usually of low quality. The disdain for the store has more to do with the preppy, snobbish, suburbanite, slutty, douchebaggedness attitude and lifestyle that goes with them.
Abercrombie is for redbull drinking, BMW driving, Lacrosse playing, Frat boys who are too stupid to stay in college.

a store most suburban bred girls go to buy their wardrobe. specializes in wayyy overpriced, tiny, tightfitting clothes that sport sexual sayings. They sell a lot of ripped jeans and vintage worn out tees that cost about $30. If u really want a truly vinatge tee or old jeans go to some thrift sore where you can get some for about $5-$10. Most people who wear abercrombie try to be cool, but in reality those people are insecure bitches that think they are really hot.
Bitch: hey like lets stop in abercrombie where I can get an ultra-coolio vintage tee on sale for $30!!!

Regular person: no thanks- you can go but I'm gonna stop at haagen-daas.
