Abercrombie & Fitch Resists Going Big

Many years ago, I walked through the old Abercrombie & Fitch, back when they sold safari gear to tiger hunters. I’ve not set foot in the store since then, nor have I ever worn any of their clothes. Still, if they want to limit the sizes they offer, they can do what they want. A touchy-feely org named Change.org has a petition calling for people to boycott fashion retailer Abercrombie & Fitch until CEO Mike Jeffries offers plus-sizes to consumers. Florida native Benjamin O’Keefe, 18, who described struggling with an eating disorder and feeling “worthless” because he couldn’t fit into popular clothing styles, created the petition on Tuesday. Why would anyone want to wear the clothes of a store that does not want them?
