I know there's no age limit on clothing brands but I do get borderline irritated when I see twenty somethings sporting Abercrombie and Hollister out in public. After age 20 (definitely 21) I think those brands should be retired and left to the teens/preteens. I'm almost 22 and never been into either brand because I like to standout from everyone else in my appearance/clothing. I like a more mature casual look such as Express, GAP, clothes from Macys and Dillards (when they have sells), and I love Burlington Coat Factory and TJ Maxx. I just don't want to wear anything that associates me with teenagers. I also kind of hate when I see grown men wearing Hurley, Osiris, Quiksilver, and those other skater brands especially when they're "kiddie" looking type shirts and doesn't exact look right on a grown man. But I don't know maybe I'm overreacting because after all it's just clothes not a big deal. What do you guys think?

Why can't you dress how you like on your own without worrying about how others dress? Why does the way other people dress bother you?

Yep... You are overreacting. It's just clothes. It's not a big deal.

You are over-reacting.

GAP is almost the same as the other places you mentioned, so don't see what the big deal is for casual wear.

Well, if the twenty-something take good care of their health, have good skin, no wrinkles and stuff, they can sport mentioned above brands.

Twenties is new... err...preteens.
