A usually overpriced store with a huge lack in lighting, and should be sued for air pollution.

A store that was formed in 1892 as a hunting supply/surplus company. Is now a clothing store popular on college campuses and high schools. More expensive than most other clothing stores, (Gap, American Eagle, Old Navy, etc.) yet people still pay for it. Also owns two stores targeted at elementary/middle school-aged kids: abercrombie (all lower case) and Hollister Co., which is supposed to have a California/surfer image. Love it or hate it, it isn't going to go anywhere for a while.
I used to hate this store because everyone wore it, but then I pulled my head out of my ass and realized that they're just clothes.

A casual, lifestyle clothing brand. Either discriminated against or loved. There is no compromise. 'Individuals', 'goths', 'emos', 'skaters' usually hate A&F due to it's over-priced and plain clothing. Also, there is a growing dislike for the thumping 'media-driven shit' being played in the shop. Many people such as 'preps', 'jocks', 'bimbos', 'posers' wear A&F. I do not agree with any of the terms in inverted commas, but merely repeating commonly used stereotypes. I personally have a few A&F products, and Hollister but not because i want to 'fit in' or 'be popular', but because i saw it in the shop and decided I liked it. Big deal? Don't think so. I wear what I want to wear, regardless of the make, label, design or colour. A&F is a clothing make, not an excuse to hate. If I saw a goth i wouldn't immediately deduce that he/she listens to metal or slits their wrists? So what gives other people the right to judge A&F wearers?
Person 1- Oh my god. Why are you wearing Abercrombie & Fitch? You're just trying to fit in with the in-style crowd, why not be an individual for fuck sake, dress to your own satisfactions. Conformity is the basis of high school

Person 2 - I bought it because it was in a sale and I like it, i wear whatever I want, not everyone who wears A&F is a poser man.

Person 1 - Sorry man, *shake hands*

An overpriced clothing store that markets to young teens and college kids. Most of the clothes are pre wrinkled and torn. For some reason, nothing ever fits right because the store only wants people who are really buff(guys) or twig-like(girls) to wear their clothes. There is often a giant blown up picture of a male model who is not wearing any Abercrombie & Fitch clothes or any clothes at all. The store is so expensive that it even makes me feel bad when my dad buys me something from there.
Guy 1: "Do you like my new Abercrombie & Fitch jeans"?
Guy 2: "Yeah, but they're so torn!"
Guy 1: "I know!, I payed $200 for them."
Guy 2: "Awesome, wanna makeout?"
Guy 1: "Sure!"

A generally overpriced clothing store that sells shirts so thin you can spit through them as well as jeans that are so ripped they look like they could have come out of a dumpster.

If you shop there and weigh over 110 pounds, people will look at you like you're a pudgy freak and you'll develop such a severe eating disorder that you'll end up weighing around sixty five pounds - but hey, you'll look "good."

This store has spawned such abominations as Hollister and "abercrombie" - the kiddie store that sells little lacy thongs for your ten-year-old sister. So cute!

Generally, the guys and chicks that shop there are little trend-followers that will hook onto a style and suckle it until it's as dry as a bone, then move on to the next pathetic trend. They claim A&F has "quality" no other store has, but this is untrue. It is entirely possible to get a nice pair of jeans for, say, thirty dollars, and - here's a novel idea - RIP THEM YOURSELF. Those that shop there often also have an "I'm so much higher-up than you because I can shop as some WASP-y store!" attitude, usually unfounded, as most of those who chose not to shop there are trying not to conform to a cult that will date their closet to "I SHOPPED IN THE 2000s!" Those who shop at stores such as A&F and Hollister are screaming inwardly, "I'm a walking billboard for a fucking clothing store! Go me!" and are generally the poster human beings for birth control.

Not to mention the amount of perfume and cologne sprayed in the air there is enough to send anyone with allergies who shops there into apocalyptic shock, and the clothes you buy there come out smelling like you just got spilled into a dunk-tank full of skunk fumes.

In conclusion, those who shop at Abercrombie & Fitch are dated, smelly billboards. What are you gonna do about it - pop your collar at me?
Abercrombie & Fitch: Dated, nasty-smelling, walking billboard, collar-popping sons of bitches.

A popular clothing store that targets young adults/teenagers. Has a reputation for selling overpriced clothing. Despite the prices, the company is extremely successful due to the fact that many young adults/teenagers feel they must conform to their surroundings for various reasons and therefore shop at Abercrombie & Fitch.

*"Abercrombie & Fitch" used in this context may be replaced with any other very popular clothing store*
Jack: Hey, let's go to PACSUN! I need some new clothes.
Steve: Umm... you're kidding right? NOBODY SHOPS THERE! I'm taking you to Abercrombie & Fitch... EVERYBODY SHOPS THERE!
Jack: Thats reminds me... Irving Wallace used to say 'To be one's self, and unafraid whether right or wrong, is more admirable than the easy cowardice of surrender to conformity.'
Steve: Huh?
Jack: He means "go to PACSUN."

An American clothing retailer founded in 1892. The clothes are designed for college kids, aged 18-22, but many high schoolers wear it as well. Its main competitors are American Eagle Outfitters and Aeropostale. The brand is known for and highly criticized for its borderline-pornographic advertising. A&F has four subsidiary brands:

abercrombie kids - A prep school-themed store designed for children in the age group of 7-14. Essentially smaller, more age-appropriate A&F clothing. Also known as abercrombie (not to be confused with Abercrombie, the shortened name for A&F).

Hollister Co. - A California-themed store whose target age base is 14-18, the high schoolers. The only A&F brand to carry a body care line. Also known as Hollister.

RUEHL No.925 - An Greenwich Village-themed store designed for post-collegiates aged 22-35. It is also relatively unknown, with 27 U.S. locations. Also known as RUEHL.

Gilly Hicks - An Australian-themed store designed for women 18 and older. It offers underwear and loungewear. With 13 U.S. locations, it is the least known of the A&F brands.

Abercrombie & Fitch and its Hollister subsidiary are well-known in American public schools for their "preppy" natures.
Abercrombie & Fitch is a great store, along with its subsidiaries.
