Abercrombie SAY WHAT?????

9 May

As I was cruising through Facebook today, I found a news link about the Abercrombie and Fitch CEO, Mike Jeffries. He was talking about how cool he is and how awesome the rest of the world thinks his clothes are. Too bad no one else agrees.

First of all, I don’t feel bad talking about the guy and posting his picture:

Troll, right? The reason that I have no bad feelings about calling this guy names is because he has been calling me names for years:

“In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids,” he told the site. “Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely. Those companies that are in trouble are trying to target everybody: young, old, fat, skinny. But then you become totally vanilla. You don’t alienate anybody, but you don’t excite anybody, either,” he told Salon.

Yeah. I take that personally. I wasn’t uncool in school, but I wasn’t one of the kids that walked around in the best clothes, either. I had glasses. I was long and lanky, with too much arm and too little body. I had funny hair at times. My teeth were (and still are) noticeably crooked. I am obviously one of the people who SHOULD NOT wear his clothing.

Or maybe I should. Maybe I should parade around in his stuff, take my picture and send it directly to him. Maybe I should get my bigger-than-Abercrombie’s-standards boyfriend to squeeze an A&F shirt over his girth and email it directly to Mr. “I Ain’t Pretty And I Don’t Know It”.  How funny would that be???

But for now, I’ll just encourage a boycott. Seriously. This man doesn’t deserve anything, least of all our support.

However, if any “ugly people”, myself included, want to mass email the guy, let me know and we’ll organize it! Oh, I just might be on to something here…….

        Still can’t find that email but the media is doing a great job of giving him a giant middle finger. I heard of a woman who sent all her clothes directly back to the Ohio main offices. That might work to send a message as well.
