If you're buying anything with logos/brands that are visible (i.e. polos, sport shirts), it might be wise to err on the side of the little pony, little whale, or little sheep in law school. The little pony in particular makes some pretty good slim/custom-fit shirts and polos.
I guess I'm just not like that. I agree that buying into the whole 'Abercrombie lifestyle' is very high school, and I am certainly not going around with "Fitch" written across my chest, or wearing flip flops all the time and big holes in my jeans, and I'm not even saying that I primarily wear Abercrombie, I think I have maybe 2 or 3 of their polos. I actually prefer Rugby for all casual wear. The point though is that fit and quality are my 1 and 2 priorities when shopping. I honestly pay no attention to labels beyond knowing which ones work for me. If something looks nice, then it looks nice regardless of what store it came from or what animal is on the chest.
Edit: I think this is the difference between fashion and style.
