I got a jacket from Abercrombie

I couldn't resist. I at least cut off the A. Fitch taping on the front. Commence mockery.

It's not bad. It could be an overpriced Ezra Fitch jacket, but no one in their right mind spends that much on a jacket.

The jacket ain't bad. One wonders why you were in an Abercrombie store to begin with.... We'll just assume you were hitting on cute sales girls.

I think it looks good; I like the pockets and the zipper that also buttons. It's good to hear you removed the name-tag, but I'm honestly not sure if even that could convince me to purchase something from A&F.

The girls in AF stores aren't really that cute. They're shiny and artificial. Beneath the permafrost of cheap makeup, they probably look like normal human beings. Also, I saw it online. I had a fair amount of store credit. No way in hell would I spend money at an Abercrombie.

I like shiny and artificial.

Some of the stuff in A&F is alright. I have a few tees and two pairs of jeans. Considering that everything is over priced (I am going to condrict my self here), sometime I wonder why I like this store. I brought one shirt the other day, a nice oxymoron, a new vintage tee.

I was not impressed with their jeans when I tried them on. The selvage Ezra Fitch stuff was remarkably bad for the price. The ts were pretty cool, honestly (a little silly and overdone with the previntage stuff, but I really liked the texture and weight of the fabric and the cut), but overpriced, and I didn't see a single one that didn't have a garish logo or some "clever" shit on it about 'wanting good head' or somesuch.

The humor shirt is over done everywhere. You can get them in spencer's cor christ sake. I tend to stick to the hertage and logo tees.

Arethusa, thats really not a bad jacket. Also, I go to A&F sometimes to buy gifts for my sister. I do think some of their clothing looks good on women, though none of their skirts or jeans.

haha. i feel almost justified that i've been quitely whispering to the missus at night that i actually kinda like this jacket. i saw it on ebay one night when i was looking for a vintage military jacket for the spring. i've thought about picking it up and cutting off any mention of a&f but so far haven't given into the temptation...yet. i've worn military jackets since i was a teenage punk rocker and still have a fondness for them but it's getting harder to come by cool looking ones. designer ones usually have a little too much "designer" in them for my tastes and current ones you can find in army navy / workwear stores are very ill fitting and thrift stores...well, i'm not sure good ones even exist anymore.

weirdnj - those goofy shirts that you mentioned, about how the trend is so overblown that spencer gifts carries them...spencer gifts is the place that is SUPPOSED to be carrying them. t-shirts with stupid sayings like "Beer Powered Sex Machine" belong in novelty shops next to oversized "Over the Hill" cards and furry pink handcuffs. the fact that frats across the country pay $40 a pop to walk around dressed like they're at a retirement party for a 58 year old middle manager is one of the biggest jokes ever played.

I actually like that jacket quite a bit.

The "clever" shirts are shit though. They, and the attitude projected by their wearers, regularly cause me to comtemplate acts of extreme and brutal violence.

I haven't seen that jacket, but it looks nice. It's funny that civvy clothing makers are doing stuff closer to vintage cuts than current army suppliers (I understand military makers aren't going for a "look").

I saw this jacket in an army/navy store, and was intrigued, but in all sizes the shoulders/arms were huge and baggy. Maybe nice when riding a motorcycle, not for casual wear. Ignore the caption.

I like the jacket.

I used to be a pretty big fan of Abercrombie and still love their shorts, but nothing in the store really does it for me anymore. You can get tees that are 1000% better for $10 bucks more and designer button-ups for the same price.

Where I grew up, Abercrombie was the "rich kid store" as our town's nicest store was/is a Dillards and a Macys (formerly a Bon Marche). The nicest label those stores carry is Ralph Lauren (although my brother informs me that Macy's just started carrying Lacoste).

I like it, assuming the fit is good.
