His attitude and marketing tactics are not at all uncommon among the fashion industry. That being said Abercrombie has been passé now for at least 5 years.

Also, it's worth understanding that A&F and many other companies float risqué ideas once in a while with the intention of grabbing bad press. A&F put sexist and racist things on T-shirts, marketed thongs to 10 year olds, and put naked 16 year olds in their catalogue because they want the moms and dads to get indignant. They want their store to be the store your kid goes to first when they feel like rebelling. Ironicly the clothes they sell there are not in the least bit rebellious and are rather preppy.

Is Abercrombie & Fitch still a thing? I think they had a good run. It was cool back when I was in high school (ten years ago). I thought the brand fizzled out.

Would you prefer they say it another way? Maybe something like, "Hey, these pair of rearless undies will fit your chihuahua, too! So buy 2!"

This guy decided to give out Abercrombie clothes to homeless people in response.

If I had the slightest provocation to wear A+F as an adult, I would be offended!

Abercrombie has been uncool since I left high school.

I was surprised that the guy actually said that. I googled his picture and it looks like he's had some cosmetic surgery and wears make-up.

Hani Khan, Ex-Abercrombie Employee, Scores Legal Win After Being Fired For Wearing Hijab


A judge ruled that Abercrombie & Fitch violated federal law when the company fired a Muslim worker at one of its Hollister stores for refusing to take off her hijab.

Judge Yavonne Gonzalez Rogers ruled in favor of Hani Khan’s request for a summary judgment against Abercrombie, which owns Hollister, last week, according to court papers. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued Abercrombie on behalf of Khan in 2011, after she claimed the company fired her in 2010 for her decision to wear the religiously-mandated headscarf.

“Reasonable jurors could determine that by offering Khan one option — to remove her hijab despite her religious beliefs — Abercrombie acted with malice, reckless indifference or in the face of a perceived risk that its actions violated federal law,” the judgment reads.

A trial will begin at the end of September to determine what Abercrombie owes Khan as a result of its illegal actions.

An Abercrombie spokesman wrote in an e-mail statement that it's company policy not to comment on pending litigation.

"Abercrombie & Fitch does not discriminate based on religion and we grant religious accommodations when reasonable," the statement reads.

The judge also denied Abercrombie’s claim that allowing Khan to wear her hijab on the job would present “undue hardship” to the company’s brand and sales. Khan had been wearing her hijab for four months at work before a district manager visited the store and decided it was against the company’s controversial “Look Policy,” which some say goes too far in micromanaging an employee’s dress.


“Abercrombie must provide more than generalized subjective beliefs or assumptions that deviations from the Look Policy negatively affect the sales or the brand,” the judgment reads. “The evidence presented does not raise a triable issue that a hardship, much less an undue hardship, would have resulted from allowing Khan to wear her hijab.”

Khan’s complaint is one of many accusing the retailer of discriminating against certain types of employees and customers. Abercrombie found itself in hot water earlier this year after a years-old quote from CEO Mike Jeffries resurfaced, boasting about the company’s “exclusionary” look. In addition, France’s human rights watchdog is investigating Abercrombie over claims the company discriminates in hiring based on appearance.

Feel slightly guilty at giggling madly over this comment.

Re: Girls Group Takes On Abercrombie & Fitch

I actually agree with A&F on that firing. If you are in the selling of fashion, I would want to dictate the fashion my employees wear while working there. And a hijab is a poor fashion choice for the store. Looking at them on google, they aren't as bad as I thought. It wouldn't bother me if someone was wearing them. But I'd still say the company ought to be able to dictate that.
