A store that tries to mass produce the "thrift store vintage look." My question is what's cool about buying mass produced "poser" vintage? People who started the thrift store movement did it to make a statement against "brands" in general, and corporate America. Urban Outfitters is a publicly traded company on the stock market and all they care about are their sales, and keeping investors happy. A far cry from being "indie" or "underground." I would much rather support a local thrift store then, try to obtain that stolen, exploited look from these guys.
That's a cool tye dye shirt, did you make it? No, I bought it for $112 at Urban Outfitters. It's a good thing I own stock in the company, they know how to exploit the youth, and making them believe they are indie, and underground.

A fashionable store with (i'll admit) slightly over-priced clothing. But, hey if somone has the money to buy a certain pair of jeans or a couple shirts they like, then they should be able to buy them without being ridiculed like some of you low-lifes here who love to lable people into certain groups. I like going to Urban Outfitters because it offers clothing and styles not seen at 'all-american' clothing stores such as American eagle or Abercrombie and Fitch. (Nothing wrong with those stores btw, they're just going for a different look.) Urban Outfitters also has clothing that is affordable.

Where rich people shop to look like poor people.
person 1: hey, why don't we check out urban outfitters? it's really trendy.

person 2: No way man. Every one who shops at Urban Outfitters is a poser. They're trying to look like a hippie but they're not at all. Real hippies dont have the money for this overpriced garbage.

You guys are mean. People who shop there aren't trying to be hipsters. People shouldn't judge people on what they wear. If I see a shirt and I think its cute, I buy it if I have the cash. If not oh well.Really cute shirts, jeans, skirts, furnitures. A bit pricey but its worth it.
Oh wow that granite wash shirt is so cute! where'd you get it?
Urban outfitters!

The place for suburban kiddies with subscriptions to Nylon to get the latest Cory Kennedy uniform.
Girl 1: WOW! I love the way you paired those blue fishnets with that oversized neon green sweater, gold chains, and rainbow Adidas hi-tops! Where'd you get that stuff?

Girl 2: URBAN OUTFITTERS! I'm so artsy and urban and unique! I should have Cobrasnake and Terry Richardson take my picture!
