An overrated urban store which sells nothing but strange yet quirky stuff suitable for those who either prefer not to be labled but are labled anyway or preps attempting to show their deep side.
OMG Urban Outfitters everything is so cool and unique and I might fool myself into thinking I have a sense of individualism if I shop here!

A store that sells clothes "affordable" for its, ahem, demographic. Makes money by stealing smaller designer's templates, corporatizing "designs" and funding Rick Santorum with the massive revenue generated by college kids who would never shop at thrift stores but still want the indie look.
I just got the Stuff Every Woman Should Know book from Urban Outfitters. It includes things like, "how to sew a button back on" and "how to smile at people you don't like." SO progressive

An overpriced chain store, found at most malls, that knocks off vintage clothing and independent designers while raising the price to something only hipsters supported by their suburban parents, and yuppies can afford
"Dude, the $60 plaid shirt I just bought from Urban Outfitters is dec as hell!"

a store that sells cool, indie/hipster, vintage-looking, overpriced clothes.
I used to want to model for urban outfitters, but then I realized I had a butt & boobs.

A clothing store for the urban, fashion-forward thinkers. It is an urban yet retro style for anyone, and they also sell house decor as well as cameras and knick knacks.
Read if you LOVE Urban Outfitters

NOTE: Fashion at UO is consistently copied from, also ripped off by mainstream, poser, teenage stores like Hollister Co., American Eagle, and Aeropostale which later you can see on the posers you hate at school or college kids at the mall.

You KNOW it's true

A very expensive thrift store, enough said.
I shop at Urban Outfitters because i have to much money, and i would NEVER be seen in a thrift store.

A store popular with kids who were picked on in High School and now wrap their identity around expensive T-shirts that have funny little sayings in cute colors. Employees usually listen to Bright Eyes and cry when they masturbate. Was founded on hippie ideals of free love and cheap clothing, but now sells Lacoste, Diesel, and jeans with holes and bleach stains that cost hundreds of dollars. Misleads shoppers, making them believe they are special, unique, or funny because of an asymmetrical collar or Led Zepplin logo. Distracts customers with bright colors and decor so they don't realize they are actually paying $150 for a beanbag chair.
