Men buys shares in shop.
when you consider Uni-Qlo do the same thing at a much lower price.
My problem with AmApp stuff is that it's so boring. Most of the shop is taken up by a few very basic clothing items replicated in many colours. There's a lack of different styles and ideas, meaning you might go in for a few t-shirts but once you've bought one you don't really see the point in having the identical t-shirt in 3 other colours and there's no other style to buy.
They're aiming at a market of people who are used to TopShop prices, clothes that only cost about as much as you'd expect to wear them maybe a 6 months if you get bored.
People who buy really good clothes go elsewhere.
And tie-dye? Christ man, we're not at Glastonbury. Look at Uni-Qlo - they offer the colour range but also a lot of different styles in fabric, shapes, etc. And there are others out there who do that.
AA Shirt £50 = Get laid by hipster
Sweatshop shirt £5 --> Pretentious book £15 --> Kebab £5 = Get laid by hipster + Cash for cab ride away from her squat + Book enhances knowledge + full stomach
And for such basic clothing the prices are ridiculously high. It's not like it's down to the cost of not using sweatshops because it used to be cheap before it became the hipster's store of choice.
Don't you think?
did you get injected with something in Croatia
You've answered your own question, haven't you?
I made a statement.
I'll put in another ':D' for good measure.
Your statement indicated that you wanted to know why AA clothes are expensive now when once they were cheap.
I apologise for the lack of clarity in my syntax.
all working at about the same level - until they fired up the creepy faux-homemade porn ad campaings. Now they are huge and hipster-revered.
Oh, and the clothes are horrible.
If you go in a big branch of JW they've got some quite nice stuff. A little preppy, sure, but not outrageously so. Not that you'd never know it seeing as their entire business model appears to be based on selling pyjamas to students.
What are these other companies? If they're smaller that makes them more alternative, thus making me interested in their products.
Interesting point about JW. I suppose sloaney > rapey/semi-paedo, in the end.
That's not the direction we're going in..
