Hollister Co, a branch of Abercrombie & Fitch, is THE clothes brand for young Americans. With a modern and carefree style inspired in South California, it’s a favorite among youngsters, so much so it’s hard to not to run into a kid wearing the seagull or A&F logo on their shirt.
Again, they aren’t originals. Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch are super expensive and we haven’t been able to find any on the platform at the moment, but this does not mean that you won’t find some in the near future. You will know if they are original by the Guaranteed Authenticity icon:
What are these cheap Hollister and Abercrombie stye clothes you where talking about?
You almost never will find any replicas in AliExpress (there seems to be less and less every day). Instead you will find white label clones or Chinese brands. They can’t be considered replicas because they are legal (they can be sold) and don’t feature any of the original logos. Instead they use similar symbols such as the letters AF, eagles, or surf or California symbols like the Sentinel Rock.
As you can see by the picture, Beckham is a big fan of this AliExpress brand :).
Chinese Abercrombie equivalents
The most famous Abercrombie & Fitch style brand in AliExpress is Anjoyfitch Kevin, the one shown in the three pictures above. They have thousands of models inspired by Abercrombie, especially t-shirts (you can see them here), shorts (here) and jumpers (here).
I have to admit I used to think that people only bought items that didn’t have the word “Anjoyfitch” visible, but from what we can see in the ratings, these items also have thousands of sales and customers are super happy with them.

What about the quality?
Compared to a replica, Chinese brands (copies with no logos) tend to be better quality and cheaper. The reason for this is that replicas are constantly prosecuted, so to compensate their losses, they up the price or lower the quality.
In other words, you’re much better off getting a product by brands such as Anjoyfitch, than getting a replica.
