Here's an example of your words coming back to haunt you...even 7 years later....Mike Jefferies got a lot of feed back when he made the statement and now 7 years later another backlash...A friend posted this on another website and I think it is so cool..wanted to pass it on...

Beware what you say.

RE: Abercrombie and Fitch

unfortunately, snapshots of this man would indicate the origination of his hatred for the less than attractive population.

RE: Abercrombie and Fitch

In all honesty, I think he said what is thought by a lot of other people.

I just looked up his picture. Wow!


 o
RE: Abercrombie and Fitch

Hadn't heard of his statements til now and don't know what he looks like. But regardless of what his external appearance is, he sure is ugly on the inside.

RE: Abercrombie and Fitch

He says Abercrombie & fitch clothing is aspirational so I guess if you aspire to be cool or thin and work at it then you get to wear their stuff? The guy is 68 and so made those comments when he was 61 - you would have thought he knew better.

I don't find him at all attractive - outside or on the inside.

RE: Abercrombie and Fitch

He never got to wear his own brand and from the looks of it, he never will. What a dud! He should know better is right!

RE: Abercrombie and Fitch

He may have been attractive when he was 18 but he looks like the scary guy in a horror movie now...crazy comment from someone that looks like a monster...HEEHEEHEE!

RE: Abercrombie and Fitch

had to lol at the last statement in the article...about the people they hire...

I have looked in their store in our mall. They are junky, worn out looking clothes that cost a fortune. My mother was raised by a poor minister and his thrifty wife in the early 1900s. She and her siblings were supplied their clothing from the Mission Barrel, the donated clothing from the congregation, because the congregation couldn't afford to pay him adequately. My grandmother was quite the seamstress, but still they grew up wearing donated clothing--which looked a lot better than the A&F clothes for sale today! Why would someone pay top dollar to look like that!!!!

My 17 year old grandson worked for them for a couple of months earlier this year. I asked if he was selling clothes and he jokingly said, "No, I am working up front folding shirts and greeting customers. That's where they put us 'pretty people!' " I laughed, thinking he was being silly but...guess not because he is good looking and has a great personality. They even took a picture of him and used it as a poster in the store and talked about putting it on store stuff like bags, etc. Now I'm glad he quit before all of this came up!

RE: Abercrombie and Fitch

I don't like the quality of their clothes or the elitist attitude.

RE: Abercrombie and Fitch

Isn't their store the one that gags you when you come within 100 feet of it? I have asthma and I start coughing and hacking everytime I get near it.

The guy is scary looking. Looks like he had lip implants and too many collagen injections.

RE: Abercrombie and Fitch

Kathsgrdn, the one at the mall near us stinks too! I have never been in it either, it just wafts out into the mall walkways! UGH


 o
Fitch! Please!

Have you seen the Ellen video on this? I LOVE Ellen! ♥

My DD was talking about this and she said he doesn't want ugly people shopping there or wearing their clothes...but commented on how HE looked. Scary and very plastic.

I am thinking about this some and I think this could be a brilliant marketing ploy aimed at people's Narcissistic personalities these days. If they shop at A and F they are the "pretty people" even if they really aren't or even if they are really. A & F is a status symbol to a lot of kids anyway...they think if they wear their clothing, somehow it makes their sh*t not stink! I bet this will only serve to increase their business.

On another note, I'm so glad they closed the one in our mall because they had the whole thing stunk up! What a disgusting fragrance! GAG!

RE: Abercrombie and Fitch

I will choose to pity the man, because he obviously needs it from looking at his horrible plastic surgery. He is striving for something he can never have.

RE: Abercrombie and Fitch

My DD sent me this picture, because I always ask "why does it have to be so dark in Hollister?" - this Dad has the right idea! LOVE IT!

RE: Abercrombie and Fitch

OMG..I hate that Hollister is so dark and wonder why. The store is fabulous looking but when you enter it's like a cave. I simply cannot see anything and have to carry purchases to the light out side to buy. Unfortunately Grandson wears nothing but Hollister and AE. And AE sprays their whole store with a pine fragrance and it wafts out to the mall.
