All About Style! | Abercrombie Christmas 2013: An Alternative Classic...

WRITTEN BY DOM, TSOF CONTRIBUTOR


         HI GUYS! HOPE you are all doing well.

As you may know by now, I'm not exactly a fan of the current direction the "look" of A&F is taking. The whole 90's grunge trend, in my opinion, just doesn't work for the brand...it's like trying to shove a square peg into a round hole. The current crop of A&F looks is absolutely some of the worst ever: I seriously question the ability of whoever comes up with them.

However, most appreciatively, the actual merchandise itself this season is some of the best we've seen in a long time! There's a solid selection of outerwear, fleece and sweaters, as well as a fantastic selection of classic and plaid shirts. For the first time in many years, we also have velvet lined tees back – how retro is that? Let's hope the velvet polos return, too (come on A&F)! ...Slowly but surely, we're getting there (A&F-wise, at least).

With that in mind, allow me to suggest to you a few ideas for outfits which evoke the spirit of the A&F of old – classic, American and timeless. More importantly, whilst the destroyed skinny jeans look cool, not all of us can actually squeeze into them – me included! Therefore, I thought it was about time someone showed the classic boot and straight styles some love. Enjoy the cold weather as much as you can!
