Abercrombie and Fitch Not Lookin So Good Telling People They’d Rather Burn Clothing Than Give It To The Homeless.

So an A&F spokesman came out the other day admitting that they would rather burn their faulty clothing than donate to charity. They say poor people wearing their clothes is bad for their image. I want to go on record saying that’s horrible, disgraceful and inhumane. With that said, I completely understand why they’re doing this. This is a business, it’s not a charity organization. If anyone could wear their product, no one would. Personally I don’t wear any of their clothing. Kinda gay. But bottom line is if I see someone wearing A&F clothing I assume they can support themselves financially. If I was walking in NYC and saw a homeless guy sporting a flamboyant, torn A&F shirt I would assume that everyone who’s anyone can score their merch. Which would result in me judging everyone I see wearing their shit. No one wins.

Imagine you’re taking a girl out on a first date. You just had a great dinner and you’re walking out the joint and a guy living on the street who smells like dog shit asks you for spare change and is wearing the exact same shirt as you. Buzz kill city. If you’re stupid enough to think you can get laid after an incident like that I have a bridge to sell you.

p.s. The people that make “snuggie” should donate their robes to the homeless. Hobo’s don’t want to wear stupid Abercrombie shirts with a random date stitched on them. They want to be comfortable while living on the street. Snuggie, get on that.

  1. I would rather wear clothes that fit than wear Abercrombie and Fitch.

    Abercrombie is just a small part of a larger consortium of douche bags. Skinny jeans, overly expensive poorly made crap and douche bag hair should all go. Let’s get back to dressing dudes like dudes, in clothes that actually fit. Go out and buy some Dickies, or a Carhartt jacket. Also, try to limit the amount of “product” you put in your hair. If it takes more than 38 seconds it’s wrong.

    This is the dumbest rationalization I’ve ever heard. I’m told quite often that I look homeless, or at least half homeless, (big beard, thrift store outfits, etc), and yet, I’ve never been dong better with women. I think it’s because I’m finally mature and happy and content with my life. People who say things like “no way yer gettin laid now brah” typically don’t fit that description.

    Dear Silky,
    Although sentiments you express are valid and, perhaps, shared by many, referring to A&F clothing as “kinda gay” in a clearly negative connotation is as divisive and insulting to a group of people as the original comment made by the A&F CEO that triggered your displeasure.
    Don’t make the same mistake he did…

    Well, in defense of Gay people, and I do know of several folks in my circle…they have a preferred way of dressing. So as the parent of a heterosexual teenage son, he for example, will not A & F for concern that girls will think he is gay…or anything with a vneck for that matter. Any CEO who makes derogatory statements like this ugly F@ck should have his company taken down 12 notches. Hooray for the guy who is out to re-dress the homeless. Totally spot on.
