    Okay... well abercrombie Kids is a lifestyle brand that caters to kids who are in there 10-16 range. You'll notice that abercrombie Kids does not capitalize the 'A'- this is how they distinguish themselves from Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Abercrombie & Fitch, which also goes by just Abercrombie (ANF for short), is a lifestyle brand that is directed to men and women who are 18-24. Even though there are two names, it is one company. However, from time to time Abercrombie will release a pair of jeans or a type of shirt that will say 'Ezra Fitch' instead (Ezra Fitch is the name of the other guy who cofounded Abercrombie & Fitch). When you see Ezra Fitch being sold, it is the most premium type of clothing ANF will sell- however you won't see it too often and it's best to look for it online.

    And also in case if you're wondering, this company also has three other lines you may be interested in. There is Hollister, which is the overlap in age between the Kids and the regular ANF. This is for that 16-20 crowd. And there is also Ruehl 925 which is for the 25+ crowd. The last line is called Gilly Hicks and they debuted fairly recently- it's a lingerie brand.

    Abercrombie & Fitch sells clothes for teens and women, their sizes go from XS-L and size 00-12 depending on if you are a Regular length, Short length or Long length. They are also quite expensive because their jeans can get up in the $100 area. Abercrombie and fitch brand logos on their hoodies also normally say Abercrombie & Fitch whereas the Abercrombie kids stores Nevers say Fitch. They only say abercrombie and they usually do not have a capital A for the word and if it is the rest of the letters are capitalized. Whereas Abercrombie is also called Abercrombie Kids, it is made by Abercrombie & Fitch (so is Hollister btw) and they have kid sizes but some people that are size XS and S at Abercrombie & Fitch can fit into size L & XL at Abercrombie (Kids). Also, the moose on Abercrombie clothes is a bit bigger and usually more noticeable, the prices is also alot cheaper. Abercrombie bathing suits are also shaped differently than Abercrombie & Fitch because they do not have molded cups since it is a kids clothing line. The kids clothing also goes from size 8-16. In conclusion but stores are great and its good if your a size XS or S so that you can fit into both! :D

    abercrombie is for kids (everything is smaller there, the moose logo, all the letters are lower cased, it's pretty much a semi-watered down version of Abercrombie and Fitch)

    Abercrombie and Fitch is the original and is the "parent" of HCo, Rue 21, and abercrombie.

    Sometimes people will get lazy and just call A&F: Abercrombie and many times people will buy stuff from abercrombie and try to pass it off as A&F since the stuff at abercrombie is kind of cheaper

    Abercrombie (no fitch) is kids.

    and Abercrombie and Fitch is adults, but people just call Abercrombie and Fitch 'Abercrombie' 'cause they don't wanna say the whole thing.

    Abercrombie and Fitch is the adults and Abercrombie is the kids/tweens.

    but sometimes people will shorten the adult's store to just "abercrombie"

    abercrombie= kids

    Abercrombie & Fitch= adults

    sometimes people shorten Abercrombie & Fitch to just abercrombie so they don't have to say or spell the whole thing. but officially, abercrombie is the childrens' store.

    abercrombie is for children. its sizes refer to 7/8, 10/12, 14/16, etc.

    It is the children version of Abercrombie and Fitch, except it is spelled all lower case , is kid sizes, and is cheaper.

    Abercrombie and Fitch is for Women and Highschoolers , and there sizes refer to 2,4,6,etc. Abercrombie and Fitches clothing is more expensive then abercrombie kids because it better quality.

    I got a shirt from Abercrombie and Fitch a year ago,and since then I have got tons of shirts from abercrombie kids, and some have gotten holes in them . My shirt from Abercrombie and Fitch has never ever got a hole in it.

    weird huh?
