Abercrombie & Fitch recently announced plans to open a children’s store on Savile Row, a London street known for high-end menswear and often referred to as “the golden mile of tailoring.” Obviously, this didn’t go over well with Savile Row’s merchants and clientele. In response, impeccably-dressed demonstrators gathered outside the A&F store in Burlington Gardens twirling their mustaches, strumming banjos, and waving signs that said “Give Three-Piece A Chance.” I’m a little concerned about the guy on the left with the riding crop, but otherwise I think this is brilliant.

As if clothing brand Abercrombie & Fitch wasn’t already the worst, staffers at the store’s Milan outpost say they were forced to work out every time their supervisors caught them making a mistake. Men were given pushups, and women were given squat thrusts, presumably so they could get ever-closer to the perfect Abercrombie model body.
Warning: Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister are going to try to emotionally manipulate you into buying their frat-lite clothing this Black Friday — and they are going to use man abs to do it. The retail chains are planning on deploying thousands of shirtless young men – faux lifeguards at Hollister and bros in skinny jeans at Abercrombie — starting at midnight on Friday, so be careful. You may be tempted to buy countless cardigans and denim mini-skirts, but hold fast! We’re sorry to say, the men do not come free with purchase. [Racked NY]
Gone are the days when the “Jersey Shore” cast wore Ed Hardy Ts soaked in Long Island iced tea-scented barf. Now they’re moving up in the world and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino struts his stuff in “aspirational” brands like Abercrombie & Fitch. In its most recent episode, The Situation was seen wearing neon green Abercrombie & Fitch sweatpants on the streets of Florence, no doubt whilst doing something sketchy. Can you guess who is not too pleased about this free PR? Yup, Abercrombie & Fitch. Keep reading »
It ain’t easy being a scantily clad Abercrombie & Fitch model these days. Not only was Belgian male model Florian Van Bael allegedly paid $1,000 less than the female models at a seven-day photo shoot for Abercrombie on Long Island, NY, but he also was under the close eye of ad agency Shahid & Co., which allegedly monitored all the models’ drinking, eating, and workout habits while shooting.

The other day, we told you about the upcoming return of Abercrombie & Fitch’s controversial magazine, A&F Quarterly, and now we’ve got a sneak peak inside the issue. Shot by Bruce Weber, the issue’s theme is a Hollywood screen test, and it will be available for $10 starting July 17. (Although, eager beavers can pre-order it now.) Here, a male model shows off his armpit hair. Enjoy. [StyleList] Keep reading »
Sales at Abercrombie & Fitch used to be through the roof, and while some blame the general economic downturn for A&F’s sinking sales, we know what’s really to blame: the discontinuation of the A&F Quarterly. The in-store mag, replete with naked and half naked pictures of hot people, launched in 1997 and was shut down in 2003, much to the dismay of frat boys everywhere. Now, on July 17, the A&F Quarterly makes a triumphant, probably-nude return to Abercrombie & Fitch stores all over the place. Pick up your copy and, umm, lock the bathroom door while you, uhh, “read” it. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
- Just when you thought Heidi Montag had reached the pinnacle of her attention-scheming, she accuses Adam Divello, creator of “The Hills,” of touching her inappropriately. (Ignore my snarky tone if this turns out to be true.) [ONTD]
- Zoe Saldana has some demands if she returns for “Avatar 2.” [Starpulse]
- Mario Lopez is today’s jerk. He reportedly convinced his girlfriend to not only lose weight, but also to get her boobs done. [F-Listed]
Run, run for your lives! Cologne-doused, shirtless Abercrombie & Fitch models are coming after the people of Japan! While this may sound like the plot of a bad spoof movie, it’s not too far off from the truth. (OK, well, not quite.) Apparently, the retailer has set up its first outpost in Japan, and the culture clash has been unexpectedly–and hilariously–problematic. Keep reading »
