Abercrombie & Fitch Is To Japan As Oil Is To Water

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…

Poor Beyoncé is having a rough week! First, everyone thought she was involved in some kind of conspiracy with Kanye West and Taylor Swift at the VMAs.

Abercrombie & Fitch T-Shirts Shock And Offend — Again!

Hey, big news! Abercrombie & Fitch has a few T-shirts in its “New College” line that are, like, way sexual and sexist and not particularly funny. (The shirts above say “Show the Twins,” “Female Students Wanted for Sexual Research,”and “Female streaking encouraged.”) And people are mad about it!

Face Off: How To Tell If You Work At Abercrombie Or American Apparel

Dov Charney, American Apparel’s oft-sued CEO and general pervy slimeball, is at it again. This time around, he’s been accused of discriminating based on looks. Again.

Abercrombie Doesn’t Think A Prosthetic Arm Is Very “All-American”

So maybe it’s time Abercrombie & Fitch reviewed its “Look Policy,”  which requires employees to project a “natural, classic, American-style.” It sounds cute, but their insistence on it is becoming costly. A&F has already shelled out millions of dollars to employees who felt discriminated against by the policy — and they just might be paying more. Riam Dean, a 22-year-old disabled…

Please Don’t Do That In This Abercrombie & Fitch Store, Ma’am

An upset woman who was informed there was no restroom in a Northern California Bay Area Abercrombie & Fitch store urinated in a changing room.
