Hi i was looking on the internet and found this site...

http://www.abercrombieglobal.com/-c-26.html

I have a feeling it's fake though as it seems too good to be true, can anyone confirm this?

You've just answered your own question!!

If it's too good to be true, then it probably is!! A&F are ridiculously expensive in ''rip off'' Britain. Only in the US are they reasonable, and if you're lucky you might catch the A&F sale over there, where hoodies go down to £15 (price when I converted $ price)!

A and F are pretty good but very expensive.

I sometimes find myself going into Hollister when I go into the city centre but rarely buy anything.

£15 (when I converted it from US to ££) for a hoody that costs £74 (UK price) is significantly reasonable, unless you think otherwise! lol :mmm:. I went into A&F one day, but forgot my $$. Went back the next day, massive A&F sale in the US.

Well, I don't think £15 is the standard cost of a U.S. A&F hoody (more like twice that), but if the same hoody costs £74 in the UK, then ya, you're right- it's a lot cheaper here! (Still out of my price range, though)

My tip is (if your size is small enough) go to the US and shop in Abercrombie Kids (much cheaper than A+F) plus A+F is cheaper in the US too. Of course there is the cost of going to the US in the first place....

:facepalm: Yes, I KNOW that! It was in the SALE! :rolleyes: lol The standard price last summer was $60. However A&F I have noticed keep the figures the same, BUT they just change the currency sign! Checking the A&F website few days ago, the UK price is £74, which I suspect is $74 in the US. It's cheaper in the US, and significantly cheaper if you're lucky to go out of NYC and find a A&F store that has a massive store sale, which I found in Delaware! AND it's tax free!

Seems to be true for most brands.

That's a pretty good sale; I hope you took advantage of it It wouldn't surprise me if A&F just changed the currency sign from $74 to £74, which would mean the UK version is far more expensive because £74=$124 So I don't disagree with you (although, you're wrong about the taxes part)

Edit: However, it should also be noted that both UK and US workers make close to the same for a starting position. That said, it's not really like you have to pay more for a UK A&F shirt, since you have to save up just as much as an American in the same position.

It's really annoying, and such a rip off!

I also got a Guess watch, cost me $85, over here in the UK it's £150!

I only got a hoody and a top! I look back and think shoot, shudda got another hoody as they are really warm and long, which accommodate my long arms well.

I didn't pay tax, Delaware don't pay tax apparently (well it wasn't on ANY of my receipts)- everything I wanted I got in Delaware as it was tax free. Whereas NYC charged tax, which my brother discovered!

Well you can always come back and find another sale And it seems that you've experienced the unpredictability of the U.S. tax system- some states have it, others do not (and the percentage changes, too!) Not only that, but the listed price of a product doesn't include the tax, so you never know the grand total! (unless you can easily find, say, 7% of numbers easily)

I am working in A+F at the moment in central london, when I have worked there during sale periods the real bargain stuff goes ridiculously quickly (anything that is reduced will usually go by lunchtime). People are prepared to pay so the price stays up. And yeah definitely just change $ to £ so unfair!

Yes, the family I was with were telling me about it; some states have tax and some don't. I found end of Aug, start of Sept is when the sales were everywhere lol I was hoping to come back this year, but I got really sick (caught a virus in America) last summer, only just got better. But hopefully in the next few years, I'll be back (im not trying to sound like Arnie, honest :rolleyes: lol) and catch the sales again.

Yes hotels = prime example of not knowing the grand total!

You're exactly right! Towards the end of August and the beginning of September, all of the "back to school" clothes go on sale :yes: (that's what I tend to do my shopping, too :teehee:) Where are you from?
