Day #295: Dear Abercrombie and Fitch

Warning: I was uber pissed when I wrote this entry.

Abercrombie & Fitch.

I have despised this company since high school. Abercrombie & Fitch has never embraced selling plus-size fashions for women. Every time I went into an Abercrombie and Fitch store I felt judged, like every single clerk was asking themselves, "Why is she here?" 



Well, my hatred for this judgmental company has been further solidified by this article: Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Explains Why He Hates Fat Chicks
Apparently, Abercrombie and Fitch doesn't stock anything above a size 12 because the brand doesn't want "overweight or unattractive women" wearing their clothes. 

This is my message to the Abercrombie & Fitch CEO, Mike Jeffries:

Thank-you, Mike Jeffries, for your ignorant and stuck-up opinions of plus-size women. Even if I was a size 6, I wouldn't buy your over-priced, cheaply made clothes. The people you generally hire have absolutely no customer service skills and I can't believe that only assholes will apply there, so I am assuming your crew training program must be poor because every encounter I have ever had in that store has been with a stuck-up pricks, much like yourself. 

I'm not one to judge people, however, Mike, you are NOT one to be talking about the attractiveness of people. Not only are you a deeply unattractive man physically, but your horrid excuse for a personality contributes to the ugliness you portray on the outside. Rather than using your success and power to build your own troubled self-esteem and ego, why don't you help build the self-esteem of teenage and young adult women in America? Why not encourage women of all shapes and sizes to value themselves as humans and not for what they look like or how much they weigh? 

Maybe if you jumped on the plus-size bandwagon like your competitors American Eagle and H&M, your pathetic stores wouldn't be losing money and closing all over the country. You're an ignorant prick and the world would be a much better place without people like you.

  2. Great post. I totally agree. When iread the article earlier today, I googled him so I could see what he looks like. I wasn't impressed. That company just needs to go away.

  6. Love it! I think at the very least kudos to Jeffries for opening up a dialogue about the definition of beauty and worth--which is probably the biggest slap in the face to him! I actually launched my blog on a post about this controversy. Feel free to check it out www.mompson.com (and it's okay to rage at him--he deserves it!)
