My college experience is that A&F is the mark of someone not in a fraternity. Ralph Lauren / Brooks Brothers with khaki shorts = FRAT. Abercombie / Hollister and cargo shorts = GDI.
Interesting article. I do tend to think that only Americans fall victim to the shitty trendy brands, but in hindsight it makes sense that all humans are equally prone to poor decisions.
