Abercombie & Fitch: Size 10 and under only

featured-image-3671177

After reading this article on why the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch hates fat chicks, I was appalled. I mean this is America where the majority of the population is size 10 and above.

They’re always in the news for something including the recall of offensive t-shirts that poked fun at Asians with slogans such as “Two Wongs don’t make it White”.  Now they’re stirring the pot again by saying that if you’re plus-sized, they don’t want your business.
So for you plus-sized ladies, what are your thoughts on this? Personally, I fit in their size demographic, but I have no interest in shopping at their stores anyways. Their shorts only cover half of your rear-end and they make everything smaller and tighter.

For the ladies who fit into Abercrombie’s “in-crowd”, what are your thoughts on this? Would you support a company that goes so far to discriminate?  Please comment below.

    Bleh. His comments of “we hire good-looking people in our stores because good-looking people attract other good-looking people, and we want to market to cool, good-looking people” sounds like Zoolander. I wish this guy was a joke. :( I hope more people boycott the store, but it’s doubtful.

    Do you think they will take it as far as not hiring employees who are size 10 and over?

    Lane Bryant only sells and has ” full figure women” in there store but no one complains about that. If your tiny everyone says oh you can wear anything, that’s not true I’m 5′ and 107 so regular stores don’t fit my hight or waist. So small women need their own store also.

    My 14 yr old daughter is 5’10” tall, 145lbs . She pretty much had never been able to wear their clothes. They have generally been cut too short or even their large size top are narrow. I agree that they’re does need to be larger sizes, as teens do enjoy their clothes or they need to adjust their sizes, so a large is comparable to larges in other stores. Some other speciality stores do have a plus size area with limited styles. This would attract more people/teen in the long run.

    My sister is a size 3 and is the manager of a Lane Bryant store so Stacieq00 you are wrong about that.

    I’ve bought items at plus size stores such as accessories etc. But Abercrombie’s CEO doesn’t want you to set foot in his store because he doesn’t want to associate his brand with a “fat chick”. I guess it’s up for interpretation.

    It’s a big mistake on their part. Teens may like their clothes but it will most likely be a size 10 or above parent who actually makes the purchase. If I had teens they would be spending my money somewhere else.
