    Default Targeting specific market segment

    I can't verify this but I am so boycotting them if this is true... then again, I am not in the stated market segment...

    The same goes for other designer brands like Giorgio Armani, Hugo Boss... Abercrombie is no different.

    Is not you boycott them hor. Is they choose who to boycott.

    CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch (A&F) Mike Jeffries doesn't want fat people shopping in his store.

    College kids wear, what can I say?

    Dunno what is the fascination here with American brand clothing stores like A&F. Personally European brands are ALOT better. Both in style and quality.

    It is funny sometimes. People paying lots of money to buy product that cost so much more than its worth and help them advertise.

    It is over-priced low quality college kid clothing with marketing campaign aimed specifically at the homosexual segment.

    Type "abercrombie advertisement gay" and click on Images in Google.

    Top European men's fashion labels are orders of magnitude superior to this low class US brand that relies on crass advertising.
