When did it become acceptable for a guy to wear a pink shirt? Why would anyone buy a pair a baggy plaid shorts that resemble a kilt? Who in their right mind would buy pre-torn jeans? When did dark brown and pink become a tasteful color combination? It is enough to bring one to tears, seeing the cashier in a tight collared shirt with a popped collar and seagreen and lavender stripes. Is that what a man - of any social strata - should wear? Unless they are openly homosexual, the answer is no.
It should also be noted that Hollister prices are no higher than any other mall outlet store, including Abercrombie and Fitch, Pacific Sunwear, or Hot Topic... so you can't use the "you just can't afford it" arguement. Most people can afford it; you just have some bad taste.
Dad: "WTF? Why are you supporting Hollister? And take those pants off, you're 8 years old for god's sake!"
I do understand some hate it and think its a cult, but I worked at one and the people are amazing and it actually is exactly what the haters say. An overpriced place to buy torn jeans, but hey here's a thought...why not buy the non torn jeans for $30 and do it yourself like most of the workers do at the store.
The clothing is of better quality than most the of the stores out there and is cheaper than A&F.
AND its not only for white people, I am hispanic and worked there and we had blacks and asains there too!
person 2 "Oh at Hollister"
person 1 "You paid 100 dollars for jeans?!?"
person 2 "NO I paid 30 dollars...haha"
