i just get the hand me downs anyway so bleh

I have yet to discover what's so different between department store jeans and Target's jeans lol

yes perhaps it wasn't the kindest thing for the CEO to say he didn't like fat people or whatever, but it's not really all that surprising

re-word: "We market t-shirts made in third world countries to white muscle heads jocks and plastic bimbos. We love stupid people that are wiling to purchase our shit at full price.This is 'merica!"

Aside from this, I think it's stupid to point fingers at some company for not having a size that fits you. If I were to open a bouquet, what audacity do you have to tell me to make an XXXL skirt especially for you? I can just hear tumblr's fatties cry out Thin privilege.

Think you can walk into Kid's gap with your pants all the way up to your chest like you are so entitled and demand for larger sizes. Now that's a show I'd paid to see.

My thought's are well if he is the CEO then who am I to tell him how to market. If that's the type of crowd he intends to attract then that's what he want's.

But personally no I don't agree just based on the fact that it sound very condescending of him to actually say that though.

Bought a plaid shirt there once , it was too small , and didn't bother taking it back, and I do not intend to ever shop there again... those prices.

For the record all the people who were working in there were quite ugly though. So Idek what he's talking about when we only hire "good"-looking people.

My opinion is that people are unnecessarily making such a big freaking fuss over this and it's hypocrisy incarnate.

It's funny how as a result of him judging people, everyone goes straight to judging him. There's just no integrity in the vocal mob-ority.

He can make clothes for whoever the hell he wants. If this hurts his bottom line in the long run, that's certainly none of your business but his. I personally do not shop there as a mid-20's male on a budget, but seeing the clothing itself does not bother me, nor would I even mind wearing it at all if I was given a handful of it.

Everything he said is something everybody (including the "fat" people) already know, people are just angry because they think it's taboo to actually *say* it out loud. He may not have sounded the most graceful in his ways, but who is anyone to judge? He has made himself extremely successful based on the concepts he spoke of...can't really argue that.

If you don't like it, don't shop there. Leave it at that and go about your business.

Story: http://www.businessinsider.com/abercrombie-wants-thin-customers-2013-5#ixzz2SSY5zAd0

Abercrombie and Fitch has decided that anyone over a size 10 jean isn’t sexy enough for their clothing line, and doesn’t want them shopping in their stores and sullying their clothes. They decided to only hire good looking people so that only good looking people will come into their store.

“It’s almost everything. That’s why 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. We don’t market to anyone other than that,”

That is an actual quote from their CEO Mike Jeffries.

I know that majority of crunchyroll was probably not a "cool kid" in high school. I know I wasn't.


Questions

-What are your thoughts?
-Do you agree with this?
-Do you shop there? and if you do, will you shop there again?


Can he run the brand the way he likes? I guess so. There's no law saying he MUST cater to a particular size/price range. and there shouldn't be such a law.


DO I dismiss him as a hipster jackass? Oh yeah.

Well I live in the United States where everyone is supposedly equal. But the fact that they only want to "hire" good looking people goes against that. They are depriving non good looking people of jobs that we are in such desperate need of. It's a different story if they refuse to sell to non good looking people but if we let this continue other company's may follow in their foot step.

When I grow up and have children I don't want their appearance to be a factor on whether or not they should have a job. What Abercombie and Fitch are doing is complete bullshit (pardon my french) and they should be stopped before this becomes a trend.


P.S. I have never purchased from their stores and most likely never will.

They don't want to clothed us chubby and fat people. All there is to it. Try Aeropostale, at least they have extended sizes for full figured people. There swim suits wouldn't do me justice though... Lol. I'm not much of a bikini person.

They should also make guillotines for us ugly people to buy and kill ourselves with.

those name brands has always seemed smaller than the actual sizing, like a medium shirt size is more like a small or maybe that's just how the clothing is close-fitted, i prefer my clothing to not be close-fitted so i prefer not to shop there, but as for them wanting to sell to a certain selection of ppl i dnt rlly see anything wrong with that seeming as i do not own the store, there is plenty more places to shop in the world

The CEO sounds like a hypocrite. I don't really agree with this, but isn't a size 10 women's pretty small? I wear a size 30 men's and I don't think that's remotely close to being overweight. Wouldn't a size 10 women's be the equivalent of a size 31 men's? That's kind of sad considering the CEO must wear a larger pant size than that.
