Abercrombie - Page 2

post #26 of 52
mike jefferies is not 80, he's only in his 60's actually. but i guess he dates guys in their 20's on a regular basis, which is totally creepy. one of my good friends and ex-frat brothers who still lives in ohio worked at abercrombie's corporate hq in columbus for many years and met the guy several times. i guess he's relatively nice but a total douche. as you would expect from a guy his age who prides himself on looking and acting like a college kid. and i guess he is over the top flamboyantly gay when you meet him in person. not that there's anything wrong with that.

And basically, in the eyes of those who wear A&F, Hollister is just a cheap knock off of the same exact stuff...And then there is the whole...It's still trying to advertise the Laguna Beach vibe, which is dead.....

Their branding is really retarded, with the seagull covering the whole top...basically...BRAND WHORING TO THE MAX!!!

And the whole...cheaper and worn by toooooooo many people... I have a feeling most of this have something to do with A&F having the whole "gay-vibe" thing...well at least around middle school and high school when people actually care...college...it goes from gay to douchebag... *shrugs* idk about this...probably something to do with the advertisement...


Idk, I still like the brand(A&F only), yes for the gay-vibe, BITE ME! And yes...I do have a pair of low rise sexy jeans.

because all the kids at the mall wear HOLLISTER CALIFORNIA shirts when they are 3000 miles away from cali

oh ps. both stores drench their clothes in their alcohol diluted fragrances so much that it induces nose bleeds

I kind of think that wearing a shirt that says California on it is worst in California then elsewhere.

Well to be honest you can still get both of those washes from the site it self: Abercrombie & Fitch > Men > Jeans or even the store...

It's not a old wash or design at all...

I have a pair of medium Kilburn Low Rise Boot and that wash has been out for some time now, so unless you are trying to find a better deal or something...they are still up on the site and still quite available...

As for the saranac, hmm, I guess ebay would be good. I think that wash was discontinued do to poor sales or something...

If I remember correctly, AF and Hollister are owned by the same company- same kind of thing as Banana Republic, Gap, and Old Navy being the same company. They like to have a cheaper, more accessible brand that kids can actually afford, I think.

I know a lot of AF's jeans are just as expensive as buying a pair of jeans here in the mall. I paid about $95 for a pair a few years back (before I started getting into premium) and can't imagine going back. But to each his own, I guess!! It's always funny to me that I will spend as much as I do on jeans and then wear them with like, an Old Navy tank top that I paid $8 for.

I think of Hollister and Abercrombie like the difference between a Lexus and a Toyota(or a Acura and a Honda), a Lift-Master garage door opener to a Chamberlain, or a Compaq to an HP - they are the SAME THING, except for a few differences.

At least Hollister has a logo. Most A&F tees and hoodies just have giant "ABERCROMBIE" or "A&F NY" logos sprawled across them.

Frankly I don't like the image, "lifestyle," or clothing of either brand, but I do like a lot of Hollister hoodies -- and not for the logo prints on them, but just the simple fact that they are generally incredibly soft and warm, unlike a lot of designer hoodies made of really flimsy cotton just to be lightweight.

But other than a couple hoodies, fuck that whole trend.

And they are surprisingly durable too.

LOL
I actually had to enter a Hollister store last month because my 11-year-old niece is into that stuff (I think it's marketed toward pre-teens, isn't it?) and when I checked out, the cashier sprayed the whole purchase, including wrapping paper, receipt, bag EVERYTHING with their fabulous fragrance. As if that stuff didn't already smell enough! and I'm allergic to most colognes/perfumes. Great!

Ha, For a couple weeks now, I noticed there is so much hate on this forum . I mean whats the problem if guy or gal wants to wear AF jeans ?

Levi's have been in Denim for very long time even longer than Diesel, people still wear them !

There is enough space for every 1 on the market IMO Diesel, Levis AF. You don't wear them but some 1 does

Thanks for listening ! Bye !

Dunno...it's absolutely hilarious when you see people in Germany and Italy wearing those brands when Diesel and D&G are right next door, literally

Sorry I'm so late to this party, but I had to respond:

Man, that photo really fucking creeps me out. It's like Gary Busey meets Shrek or Freddy Kruger or something.

I've got it: John McCain with a toupe!
