    Yesterday I enjoyed a pretty decent omakase while seated next to the most stereotypical fob couple: guy in a horizontal striped Abercrombie polo and the girl with a Gucci print shawl and two Chanel bags.

    I always assumed it was for reasons related to appearing youthful, which ties into that specific sects "body worship" attitudes.

    While not gay, I'm somewhat of a self-identified meathead who wears abercrombe from time to time because it fits me well and is pretty cheap on clearance.

    so, my post had no real contempt implied.

    Excellent guys, thanks for making this conversation on the different meanings of Abercrombie among various social groups as shallow as possible. I was worried it was going to be interesting.
