My nine year old ran into Hollister the other day and I ran after her and grabbed her by the arm to drag her out. She protested and I said in a loud voice 'this is poseur clothing'. You could have heard a pin drop in that store. LMAO! Take her over to Old Navy... LOL
Mikey- man she is 18 and has a job, she will be a contributing member of society and she is an adult, so dont sweat it, we wont bag on ya here on the board for it, not much anyway, hahaha . Just when ya go out to eat or whatever make sure she isnt wearing a Hollister \"surf team\" shirt!
I am so glad there is no hollister available to my kids. My 14 year old went shopping with her grandmother one day and shows me what she got at a TJ Maxx, a freaking hollister \"surf team\" shirt. I told her i never want to see her wear that, and that I wouldn't wash my car with it. SHe was a bit upset but understands now that no fake surf shop gear comes in the house. She can wear Aeropostal, and all the other stuff out there, just no fake surf shop gear. Granted you can buy Volcom and Quiksilver and Hurley and the others at a freaking Macy's which is kind of dishearting but at least the people that founded those comapines and many still in these companies surf and built there brand around a true understanding of the lifestyle, no matter how money grubbing and sold out these compaines may become.
true but at the same time all those companies (quik, volcom, billabong, etc) definitely aren't what they used to be. Look at Volcom for example, now owned by a french luxury designer, gimme a break. So much for \"youth against establishment\".
Out of curiosity, what do you all think of Nike as a surf company? Supposedly they're selling Hurley and dropped the whole 6.0 thing since they're now a more 'established' surf company. More money for the industry could be seen by some as a good thing, but what about you guys? I guess the only thing you can't argue is that they're damn good at running a business.
