    He knows what he's doing. You don't say something like that unless you literally have nothing to lose from it. That **** will just make kids want it more.

    I don't see anything wrong with it. Specialty shops have always had a clientele they aim for. Its pretentious but nothing to get worked up over. Besides Abercrombie is over priced drek that wears out quick.

    Something not entirely different I have seen is some states have a price markup on clothes larger than XL. I've never encountered it in NC, but I have in SC and TN.

    How is this news? Abercrombie has always been anti-fat/ugly.

    This isn't even the first time they have been in the news over something like this. They got into a stink over refusing to hire fat people not too long ago.

    I knew there was a reason I never bought any A&F or even walked into a store. :oldrazz: I'm never been fat, but according to their models/topless salespeople, I shouldn't bother anyway since I'm not white. :o

    I always did think how pretentious it was that they had giant pictures of shirtless guys in their storefront to make you want to buy their CLOTHES. :o

    Shop somewhere else, then. I've been following reactions via threads on the Misc; all overblown. I'm a slim man. I sure can't shop at the speciality stores for the more robust gents. This situation is more or less the same. Nothing is stopping anyone from going into Abercrombie except the fact that the clothes might not fit you.

    At the risk of sounding like an a-hole, if this is rustling jimmies, then the people who're mad should make an effort to get themselves in shape. Note that I didn't say supermodel anorexic skinny.

    if you are big you buy bigger clothes, if you are small you buy smaller clothes. this guy is saying that if you are big **** off you suck and are uncool. i have never seen a mens big and tall shop that hated on skinny men. its the attitude this guy has, if he wanted to sell clothes to skinny people fine but to call fat people un-American is just wrong.

    I think that's why it's getting so much news - if he were a walking Adonis, people would chalk it up to "okay, he's a *****ebag, but he's good-looking so he can say it."

    But he's not good-looking enough to even wear his own products! :lmao:

    What they should stop doing is dropping bottles of cologne outside their store.

    They play an inordinately large amount of dance music whenever I walk past.

    Abercrombie clothes look like garbage anyhow. Even if I could fit into their clothes, I have too much respect for myself to be caught dead in Abercrombie, not matter what this guy says. My outsides may look like a train wreck, but at least I'm not a **** on the inside. I had to develop a personality *gasp*

    But seriously, not to invoke Godwin's law prematurely, but doesn't this remind anyone else of a certain German political party with a particularly exclusionary philosophy?
