    I own a lot of A&F clothing. Jeans, polos, casual button up shirts, hoodies, boxer briefs, and t-shirts. I can understand the "buy made in USA" mentality, but personally I don't think that's realistic/important enough to worry about. I have a football player build and their clothes seam to be cut just for my body. The boxer briefs have extra room, almost like a cup, in the font where your junk goes, so they feel very comfortable. Nothing ever shrinks or fades and they look fantastic. The t-shirts are some of the softest I've ever felt and they stay that way over multiple washings and don't loose their shape. I just don't see a downside.

    nothing is wrong if you are <16 yrs old.
    (and the visual about the boxers and the front part where your junk is kept was....um....unnecessary.)

    Paying for the name, and strictly for the hip-hop teenage brand whore IMO.

    I have to agree with some of what original poster said here because of the quality of A&amp;F is really excellent compared to some other brand. However, I do believe that some of their clothes look like an advertising billboard. If their logo is so big, they should be the one that give us money to wear their clothes not the other way round.

    Their brand image is in poor taste in my opinion.

    A most definite yes... http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/34...p_hoodies.html Although this is probably a knock-off. Tacky way overpriced 'Made in China' hoodies, with a huge 'ABERCROMBIE' printed on them. IMO these are typical hip-hop fashion, just add bling and one is all set.

    some a&amp;f outerwear and knitwear is OK

    however, everything is heavily branded and closely tied to the company image

    and the company image is terrible and evokes imagery of acne-ridden 15-year-olds hanging out in the mall food court. HTH
