"I Love My Daddy"
My daughters wear these shirts and when I asked them what it means they have no idea. As their father I thought it important that I should understand what it means since they wear so many of these shirts so I looked it up online and found no meaningful definition. Since so many people wear these clothes and they look nice the word should have a meaningful definition so I've created one. From now on, Aéropostale now means "I Love My Daddy".
I know my daughters love me because they are always wearing their Aéropostale shirts.

A mall store similar to Hollister but cheaper and less popular. It’s peak was in the 2000s. Now mostly just high school girls and Hispanic guys shop at it.
Victoria: I’m gonna go into Hollister.
Valerie: I like Aeropostale better so I’m going in there.

Despite the juvenile monkeys and butterflies, Aeropostale has good quality clothing for half the price of American Eagle or Abercrombie and Fitch. It is, by no means, a 'wannabe prep store'; it is a store for people who like their fashionable and comfortable aparrel and have more sense than to waste money on a worse quality, over-priced Abercrombie shirt. Just because someone shops at Aeropostale doesn't mean they are too poor to afford clothes elsewhere, it just means that they are excersizing some practicality in the way of clothes-buying instead of spending frivilously like the majority of today's youth.
Stephanie: Want to go to Aeropostale today?
Courtney: No way, that store is for like wannabes who like can't afford Abercrombie like us but still want to be all like cool and stuff.
Stephanie: Yeah, I guess you're right.

The truth of the matter is that these girls are developing superior attitudes to those who merely want comfortable clothes that will not make them fall into debt. For them, evidently, money grows on trees, so they have nothing to worry about. However, not all people are this fortunate and would rather save their money for a more important cause and will settle for cute, appropriate clothes.

An affordable prep store with nice clothes at good prices

I'm sick and tired of all you people bashing aeropostale just because it is the cheapest of the prep stores. I shop at aeropostale and have some shirts from ae. I can't stand to have to listen to you kids say that hollister and a and f are so much better just because they cost more. i mean why the hell would i want to go to a and f and spend $50 on a single shirt when i could go to aero and get 5 for that same price. i don't know about you but i like getting the most out of my money. also all you people talk about how a and f and hollister are made out of higher quality materials. give me a break, none of you people have any idea of what a high quality material is and you know it. do me a favor and take a look at the tag in your $50 shirt and tell me what it says. i bet you its made out of cotton and the shirt was probably made in tailand with all the rest of the shirts made by everyone else. so just because you spend more money on shits than me doesn't make any better of a person than i am and you think it does than that is really sad and you need to get a life. if all you kids do is bash aero all day than you are really the pathetic ones because you have nothing better to do with your lives.
Aeropostale and you people need to accept it, just because the other stores are more expensive doesn't make them better and you people need to realize that.

Aeropostale is a teen clothing store that is commonly grouped with Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister Co., and American Eagle. However, it is also regarded as the "cheapest" of the group. This may or may not be true, because they are generally the same in quality, but the other three's original prices on their items are much higher (especially A&F and HCO, which sell T-shirts for $38 in a heartbeat).

Aero sells clothes and other items (jewelry, sunglasses, bags, etc.) for both females and males. From personal experience, I notice that a lot of people well above their teen years still shop here, for some reason. Although most styles are meant for younger people, the simpler and more basic things can be stretched to people of at most 8 years older.

Lately, it seems that Aeropostale has been taking cues from the other three main teen retailers. They have removed the monkeys and butterflies from their clothes and general image, and instead replaced it with a more clean and "mature" "A87" logo. Their models and advertisements generally use the same people all the time, unlike the other stores (probably more cost-effective). Also, they are always fully clothed and doing fun, G-rated things instead of a more romantic and mature theme like A&F and HCO use. This new advertising (as well as the logo) is probably used to attract more of the customers that go to the other three, rather than thinking of Aero as a monkey-butterfly-glittery-kiddish brand. Their original selling price can also hurt your wallet if you are on a tight budget.

Their sales are much better than A&F and HCO, however. Stuff can get extremely cheap, especially near the ends of the seasons. Aero hires people of all shapes and sizes and doesn't hire based on looks, as A&F and HCO are known to do.

Seeing as most people were slightly disturbed by the butterflies and monkeys, I'm guessing Aero will make an even bigger name for itself in teen retail in the near future. It's a good place to shop, in my opinion.
Girl 1: Where do you like to shop?
Girl 2: Abercrombie, Hollister, American Eagle, Forever 21, and Aeropostale!
Girl 1's aunt: I like to shop at Aero too! I'm 30 but hey, their stuff isn't kiddish anymore so no one notices!
Both girls: ...
