Their “ivy league heritage” image may have worked in a better economy, but it looks like their elitist business model is failing hardcore in the present day. More
Topic: Abercrombie and Fitch
Remember when Abercrombie got itself in trouble last month with that Taylor Swift-mocking (also maybe slut-shaming?) t-shirt? Sure, the most offensive thing about it was the superfluous hashtag, but Taylor Swift fans (#Swifties) were worked into a blood frenzy that … More
Which is more annoying? Swift or Abercrombie? More
Remember when Abercrombie CEO Mike Jeffries said he didn’t want larger people wearing his company’s clothing? Sure you do! It was basically because they weren’t cool enough and he was worried it might bring down the brand. Turns out that he doesn’t want employees wearing large clothing, either. More
Oh, you’re sorry because
everyone hates you now and you’re afraid of your stocks falling your comments and practices discourage inclusivity and diversity? Well, good. I guess. But …oh, what’s that ol’ saying that definitely applies here? “Too little too late”? More
A little while ago, Abercrombie & Fitch CEO
Clayface Mike Jeffries made some really awful comments about why his fratty Americana mall clothes don’t come in larger sizes. A recent article (focusing on the brand’s desire for thin, popular customers) brought the comments back around and a new outcry surged on the internet, especially from the fat acceptance community. One blogger, Jes at The Militant Baker, decided to write an open letter to Jeffries.
…Even better, she did a photoshoot to accompany that letter, imagining ‘fat Abercrombie ads’ that reflect positive body image. More
Hey, betches! Sofia Coppola‘s The Bling Ring premieres at Cannes today! The film, which stars Emma Watson as the Worst, is based on a true story about a group of shallow people who robbed rich and famous shallow people. Zeitgeisty!
Anyway, guess what that means? Horrible early/mid ’00s fashion is back! Did you miss whiskered jeans? Louis Vuitton Murakami bags? Purse dogs? Ever-present Frappuccinos? Unapologetic venality? Paris Hilton being marginally relevant?
Hopefully you didn’t. But let’s take a stroll down the worst kind of memory lane with our carefully considered Bling Ring-inspired shopping guide. More
Apparently, the reason the Abercrombie and Fitch will not make larger sizes is… because they really do not like larger people, very much. They certainly don’t want them wearing their brand. I wish I were joking on this one. According … More
There is only one Hollister Co. in the whole of Ireland. If you’re like us, you’d say that’s one Hollister too many. But, plenty of people really like shirtless dudes in darkened mall bungalows, so an enterprising 27-year-old man in Ireland named Max Kulczynski decided to fill that hole in the market: he began offering the full body spray and shadow experience in his very own fake Hollister.
Listen, Abercrombie & Fitch has been dancing around the fact that they want to have people making out in their advertisements for years. More
Hot on the heels of yesterday’s hopefully fake but certainly horrible news that a woman in the UK was injecting her 8 year old daughter with Botox to help her entertainment career, the world has discovered a push-up bikini top on sale over at Abercrombie & Fitch Kids. Yes, the same manufacturer of thongs for 7 year olds that said said “Eye Candy” on them. I find the idea of a little kid in a bikini kind of off-putting to begin with (am I crazy? old fashioned) but More
