    Neither. I'm about as fashion oriented as Larry the Cable Guy.

    I've never heard of Zara, but I'd say them if anyone.

    Abercrombie just isn't fashion to me. It screams, "I just spent way too much on this shirt to let you know I like expensive useless things."

    Their target customer and price points are different. I personally don't like Abercrombie because it's kind of blasé, like the McDonalds cheeseburger of fashion. Zara's ok, it's like a slightly more upscale Banana Republic. If I worked in an office it'd probably be more appealing to me.

    I prefer the European stuff so Zara. Don't really have any interest in Abercrombie.

    I've seen A&F stuff that looks good on some people, and some that looks terrible on others. Guess for me it depends on what it is and who's wearing it.

    I'm pretty sure the same would be true for Zara, which I know nothing about.

    Zara. I work in an office, and have to dress professionally Monday through Thursday.

    And isn't Abercrombie for high schoolers and freshmen/sophomore college crowd?

    Zara for sure! Zara's clothes just look better and have a certain 'cool' about them that Abercrombie lacks. But then again, they are each made to cater to a certain crowd and I've never fit in with the Abercrombie crowd. Besides, Zara makes some good jeans and man bags.

    I prefer Zara's style but I'm too tall for most of their pants and they only carry shoes up to 12, which doesn't help me. I really like their sweaters and jackets.

    Well I try not to wear my jeans unbottoned and falling down, so no Abercrombie, and I don't think I've ever worn suspenders with no shirt. So no Zara.

    Is there an option for "I wear whatever fits and is comfortable?"

    I like the European style of Zara and much more affordable than Abercrombie.
    Abercrombie is the same thing every season and soooo over priced

    If you find Abercrombie overpriced, you should buy it from the shop in London - it's twice the price!

    I have never bought anything in Zara, and I have only bought one item from Abercrombie, a pair of flip flop/sandals.

    I do like some Abercrombie stuff, but in the London store at least, it's way too expensive for what it is.

    I prefer a shop called Esprit, think it's only in Europe though.

    Apparently Esprit does have stores here in the States; I'll have to check them out when I'm in Miami in late February.

    Benetton and Sisley are also awesome brands. They closed the Benetton in Columbus, which highly upset me. In general, I find those 'High Street' fashion chains to be much more fashion forward and wearable.

    Of the two choices i'd be Zara, however if you're in Canada try Tristan and America or RW&Co (i work for them). Banana Republic is way too overpriced for what they make (same thing as aforementioned companies).

    if i knew what zara was, i'm sure i'd like it after surmising from the posts it's european.

    as for abercrombie, i only wear the t-shirts. they fit me well and they are so soft. I NEVER pay full price. always go to the clearance in the back. if it all looks the same every season why buy the new stuff? ha.

    where i went to school though, it was a status symbol and i can't lie that i didn't play into that a bit. but only a bit.

    Yeah, have a look. They aren't high fashion by any means, but I basically stick to t-shirts, check shirts, hoodies and jumpers, and they do decent and fairly priced on these items.

    Or maybe everyone here who says Zara is more fashionable than you are and more daring. icon_biggrin.gif

    Abercrombie is DEFINITELY not fashion. It's a style and a look, sure, but it's NOT fashion. Fashion is something that's always changing. Abercrombie clearly doesn't change. It lacks creativity and expression. Sad.

    The hunky model fills out his clothes nicely.

    Club Monaco is nice as well, as is John Fluevog. And I think Ports 1961, https://www.ports1961.com/#/press/list/list_all/1/, could make a killing if they expanded into men's clothes. Canada really does produce some great clothing stores. That's why I always seem to go 'broke' whenever I go to Montreal.
