"I Love My Mommy"
These hollister shirts are usually also worn by the same people who wear Aeropostale ("I Love My Daddy") shirts.
Dude, that girl loves both her parents cause she's got that Hollister shirt on today and she had the Aeropostale shirt on yesterday.

A company that sells surfer themed clothing. To all of the people that say, "people who wear Hollister have probably never been to a beach before, I'm a real surfer" Listen, their is no such thing as a "real" surfer. If you surf a lot, your a surfer. Now if you shop at Hollister, and you surf then that doesn't make you any less of a surfer. Hell, I can shop at Wal-mart and surf and still be a surfer. People are stupid fucks. Thinking that only real surfers wear hurley, billabong, and volcom. HA! They have a logo or brand stamped on their clothes too. As long as I still have the skills on the board, who gives a fuck where I stop at. Just take some time to think about that, and you'll see what I mean. Dumb asses.
(Guy wearing Hurley)- Hey kook, your not a surfer. Your wearing hollister.

(Guy wearing Hollister)- Well, bring out your board and ride those waves, and then we'll see who's the real surfer.

(Guy wearing Hurley)- I don't have a board.

(Guy wearing Hollister)- Exactly.

Hollister is a "preppy" store which opened its doors in 2000, in the Easton Town Center in Columbus, Ohio. Its parent company is Abercrombie. Hollister clothing is known to be cheaper than AF, mainly because the first Hollisters were taking all profits away from Abercrombie (this is called "cannibilism").

Hollister, or HCO, embodies a laid-back Californian lifestlye. They haved ranked top in Teens' Top Clothing Brands.

Logos: SoCal, a seagull, HCO

Fictional story: Hollister claims to be founded by J.M. Hollister in the 1920s.

Hollister is infamous for their clever advertising tatics. They print their name on the clothing, thus subtley (or not so much -_-)spreading word about Hollister.

Their stores are often made to mimic a beach party. They are dark, reeking of prefume, and loud. Lounge chairs and magazines are provided.

Well known for wrinkly/destroyed jeans.

Aimed at the pre-teen to early teen population.
I got this tee shirt at Hollister the other day.

A store, that in my personal opinion, isn't my style.
They sell clothes that look vintage, but in fact, aren't, and are notorious for they're ripped jeans.
It's located in most malls across america, even though the style and intention of the store is surfing and southern california.
It generally annoys me because nearly every shirt in that store says HOLLISTER on it, so it nearly turns everyone into walking billboards.
Yay! Go corporate America's plan to brainwash the population!
Abercrombie isn't much better, though, because of the trendiness; and the fact you have to buy two shirts to cover up your chest.
Hollister is a store, but whether you like it or not, you must find out for yourself.

Hollister is a cool store, but it rather kills your senses:
HEARING-Loud Blaring music
SMELLING-An entire store doused with fragrances coming through the airvents
SEEING-Dark, batcave like

Although taste and hearing remain intact.

Also, be sure to watch out for long lines and angry parents with rising credit card debts due to their little daughters who tell them to buy a "Cute outfit" for them, when they then get into fights with other parent because they are sick of waiting in sometimes very long lines!

Be aware not to wear your clothes sporting "Hollister" to the state in which it represents CALIFORNIA!!

You might just get beat up...

Hollister is a stylish clothing store based on west-coast surfer style. It is NOT based off of the town Hollister, which is far away from any beaches and is known more for paintball and off-roading/motocross etc. Hollister is based off of Hollister Ranch, which is a surf community somewhere in Southern California. People should understand this better, Hollister shirts say So-Cal on them often, Hollister the city is in Northern California.

Hollister is owned by Abercrombie and Fitch. Their clothes are similar in style, but are more reasonably priced. There are people who shop at Hollister but not Abercrombie and Fitch, because Hollister is perhaps even as low as the American Eagle price range.

Their clothes include pre-ripped pants, and faded clothing etc. all are meant to have a worn feeling. There is a reason to buy pre-ripped clothing; designer clothing is meant to stay the way it is forever. Generally speaking, pre-ripped clothing does not become much worse over time, whereas ripping your own clothing you will gradually expand the rips over time. In addition, designer fabric tends to be much more comfortable, cheap Levi's and other brands tend to feel cardboard-ish.

People tend to rag on Hollister and Abercrombie and Fitch because their clothes are higher priced than normal. In my opinion, I felt the same way but I find their clothing to fit much better and feel more comfortable, I would wear one pair of their jeans a couple days in a row if they didn't get dirty. They do sell jeans that are minimally ripped as well. It may seem overpriced, but you can have two pairs of jeans and that will be enough for daily use.
Person A: "Wow it sorta feels like I'm not wearing pants at all! Maybe I should by these? I've never really been in here before but all the guys that shop here get shit from people.."

Person B: "Yeah it's sort of lame but they don't really understand.. It's too bad you know I mean it's not like all the clothes in Hollister are destroyed."
