Cheating Wives Shop at Banana Republic, J.Crew: Survey
New York Daily News ^

Posted on 06/29/2013 8:28:17 AM PDT by nickcarraway

A new survey by Ashley Madison, an online dating site designed especially for cheating spouses, has revealed their secret sartorial choices.

The site surveyed 52,390 of its female users, and it turns out that Banana Republic is the preferred clothing brand of cheating women.

AshleyMadison.com CEO Noel Biderman explained how the brand's "business casual merchandise perfectly suits the busy working woman, juggling work and family," which matches the profile of the site's average female user -- "a professional woman in her early 30s."

Runner-up on the list is preppy-fashion retailer J.Crew. Meanwhile Victoria's Secret is the top underwear choice for an extramarital fling, with 69 percent of the site's cheating women picking the US brand.

Here's the full list of clothing brands:

1) Banana Republic

2) J. Crew

3) Macy's

Cheating wives on AshleyMadison.com identified Banana Republic as their preferred clothing brand. JOHN TACY FOR NEW YORK DAILY NEW

5) H&M

6) Bebe

7) Lane Bryant

8) Chico's

9) Lululemon

10) JC Penney

Meanwhile, more than a third of the women surveyed said they spend more on their appearance since they started cheating, and 27 percent have a secret credit card to fund their purchases. "Becoming more concerned with one's appearance is often a dead giveaway for an affair," said Biderman.

First launched in 2001, the site now boasts 17 million users around the world. Competing with traditional online dating sites like Match.com or eHarmony, Ashley Madison directly targets married men and women who want to partake in a secret affair.

:: 10) JC Penney ::

That would be those women cheating on their “partner” with another woman?

I liked Banana Republic back in the 1980’s, when they sold military-style clothing and some actual military surplus items.

They shop at Banana Republic because BR is at every shopping mall in America, this survey is fairly worthless.

I used to have a 2005 passat diesel, was a good car, good mileage etc. I had no idea what kind of people were associated with the car until I noticed disgusted looks when I’d get out in my cowboy boots lol. They were also disgusted to see my coonhound in the backseat.

I only got the car because it got killer mileage and drove well, didn’t realize all the stipulations that went with it.

“business casual merchandise perfectly suits the busy working woman, juggling work and family,”

...and still finding time for a boy on the side?

Keep juggling. One of those balls is bound to drop.

You got the diesel - you’re good. Seriously, I know 3 different women who have/had/do cheat on their husbands that drive those cars. I guess it’s a cheap lease.

Yes ...those old Banana Republic catalogs were the best. Reading the item descriptions were an adventure. What the hell happened to that place. I miss the old Banana Republic. What it has turned into is no different than a Target store. I will never shop there.

I’m not sure, the one I bought was pretty expensive, was over 50k anyways.

I think it has to do with the fact that mostly liberals drive VWs heh

A long time ago Banana Republic had cool tropical and safari themed clothing. Great khakis, great cargo pants, cool camp shirts and the store was heavily themed.

Then they got bought by The Gap and became just another store.

Yes looks like el diablo with his willing subservient purveyors in the modern culture have sold women on a bill of goods built on highly flammable materials. One little errant spark overload and pfffffffsssstttt—there goes the little hedonistic utopia in bitter disappearance. Devils do lie dontchyaknows.

Coincidentally, my GF doesn’t go to BR or J Crew as she never liked those styles. Bebe or some classy chick store where I don’t want to go in are her preferred shops.

>>What the hell happened to that place.

Bought by Gap Stores, Inc. in the 80s, and “rebranded”.

Yep, celebration after victory, FoxNews styles, puts out more, than “peace and love” as a surrender vagina without victory. There is true and false peace in this world, and they feigned surrender behind celebration before getting destroyed. What a dish, and we know their envy and angst is real, they do not want to see America succeeding spiritualy like this in this faith/”gamble” which is a win win for whatever child of our is to benefit for us if we are not there. Their relentless attack on conservative families is all too telling.

Jettas are usually the choice for younger women. Low $20sK. Passats are more of a family/guy car, mid $20sK to $30K+ for diesel.

People who aspire to actual luxury brands but can’t quite get there buy a lot of VWs. Next step up is Volvo before the true luxury brands.

Interesting isn’t it that Mooch shops at J. Crew...and probably Banana Republic considering the current administration
