I honestly can’t remember the last time I went into Abercrombie & Fitch and the thought of the brand only instills nostalgia filled with denim skirts, lace trim tanks, thick brown belts, and the scent of that damn cologne.
However, there have been a few cute things that have popped up on my social media lately, and after deeper investigation, I’ve come to find out they were from Abercrombie. With some time to spare during my recent trip to San Francisco, I decided to go check it out for myself. Surprisingly, the merchandise was super cute. Quality wise, I’d say it was on par with the price point, but I found some great stuff on clearance that I can easily transition into fall and that was barely over $20. Obviously the key to shopping here at 32 years old is avoiding the moose icon at all cost and anything with ABERCROMBIE across the ass.
Here are some items I would recommend shopping here:
Knits- t-shirts, tanks, sweatshirts all seemed to be of decent quality
Jeans- found a great pair of white and black jeans that fit me great and were 50% off. They do have a lot of stretch so I’m curious to see how they hold up, but I’ve been searching for a nice pair of white pants all summer! They are up to date with the latest denim trends and come in short, regular and long lengths. Great selection of denim shorts as well.
Some things I avoided:
Dresses- all seemed to be synthetic fibers that were very thin and wrinkled
Sweaters- seemed to pill very easily and looked worn even on the racks and folded
Here are some of my favorite pieces from the clearance section and a few that came home with me.
