Abercrombie & Fitch Will Drop Its Infamous Logo From Its Clothes

As Abercrombie & Fitch continues its slow descent into obscurity, the company is attempting to regain some profit by removing the logos from their clothes that once made the chain famous. After all, logos just aren’t trendy anymore, and Abercrombie is only a store for “cool” kids. Teenagers are apparently opting to spend their money…

Abercrombie & Fitch’s Jerk Of A CEO Has Lost His Chairman Title

Mike Jeffries, CEO and chairman of Abercrombie & Fitch, lost his chairman title this week. The guy is a super-douche who made it known that he only wants cool kids to shop at his store. It seems that shareholders are fed up with that attitude, because it’s no longer selling. The new chairman will be Arthur Martinez,…

Abercrombie & Fitch Will Finally Include Plus-Size Shoppers

Abercrombie will finally be expanding its range of sizes to sell clothing larger than a size 10. In what might just be karma for being colossal jerks, the company’s stock prices have been dropping and customers aren’t flooding into the store like they used to. CEO Mike Jeffries still insists that his brand is marketed

On Muslim Woman’s Veil Lawsuit, Judge Rules That Abercrombie Is Still Pretty Much A Giant Bully

In case people aren’t yet convinced that Abercrombie & Fitch is the Douchiest Company Ever, they’ve set out to prove it once again. In 2010, they fired Hani Khan, a Muslim employee who insisted on wearing a hijab at work. The store claimed that the head scarf would hinder sales because it strayed from their…

Abercrombie & Fitch Pulls T-Shirt Making Fun Of Taylor Swift’s Love Life

Abercrombie & Fitch just launched an anti-bullying campaign but they’ve fucked up yet again by making T-shirt  with the slogan, “# more boyfriends than t.s.” — meaning Taylor Swift.

Aaand cue the mob of torch-wielding tweens.

Abercrombie & Fitch Does Not Understand Irony, Announces Anti-Bullying Campaign

Remember how Abercrombie & Fitch CEO and Biff-a-like Mike Jeffries told the world that A&F clothes are just for cool kids? Or how he explained that A&F lady sizes only went up to 10 because he didn’t want fat women wearing his designs and preferred “thin and beautiful” women buying his clothes? That was awesome.

Just In Case You Didn’t Hate Abercrombie & Fitch Quite Enough

By now you’ve probably heard that Abercrombie & Fitch is an exceedingly offensive company that aims to create clothes exclusively for the young people that CEO Mike Jeffries deems “cool.” But did you know that A&F has a long history of sexism, too? As The Huffington Post explains, back in 2005, activist Heather Arnet of…

Fat Blogger Poses Like She’s In An Abercrombie & Fitch Ad

Abercrombie & Fitch’s CEO Mike Jeffries said he only wants his clothes worn by “the cool and popular kids,” not the “not-so-cool kids,” which is why sizes only go up to women’s size 10. Men’s sizes, by the way, go up to XL and XXL because it’s only women who can be too fat for…

Comedian Takes On Douchebag Abercrombie & Fitch Practices By Being A Douchebag

It’s pretty clear that Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries is a raging douchebag. Aside from the sexist and elitist (oh and we forgot, ableist) practices the company’s been found guilty, Jeffries most recently came under fire for his absolutely ridiculous sizing policies. You see, A&F only produces women’s clothing up to a size 10, because,…

An Open Letter To Abercrombie & Fitch’s CEO Mike Jeffries

Dear Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries,

I used to see your brand walk up and down the halls of my high school way back in the day. Before I really even knew who you were, there you were — in the form of jeans, shirts and other fashion statements of the late…

8 Stores That Instantly Make Me Feel Old, Fat, And Grumpy

I’m a little uneasy about getting older, but it’s definitely not something that’s on my mind 24/7. There is one place, however, that forces me to confront the harsh passage of time more than any other, and that’s the mall. Stores I once bounded into with youthful glee now turn me into a scowling curmudgeon.

Check Out The Most Well-Dressed Protest Ever

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 Garde…

Abercrombie & Fitch Force Workers To Work Out As Punishment

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.

There Will Be A Bunch Of Shirtless Dudes At The Mall On Friday

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.

Abercrombie & Fitch Will Pay The Situation To Stop Wearing Its Clothes

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…

Abercrombie Model Fired For Eating A Croissant On The Job

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.,…
