The real question is why the fuck are you on their mailing list?

David Barrett:

A while ago, I got a loan of a hoodie, and it fit really well... arms went all the way down, which is important for people of my giantosity. It was an Abercrombie and Fitch hoodie.

So I went to their website to see if they still had it. They didn't, but they had one or two hoodies I liked, so I put them in the shopping cart and then tried to see how much shipping was.

To see how much shipping was, to continue with the order to that stage, I had to register an account. Which meant being put on their mailing list.

David Barrett:

It's called an observation, Cassie, of their approach to marketing.

In this ad, they are advertising men's clothing by featuring topless men, where the clothes themselves are pretty much invisible.

Therefore, assuming they are trying to target MEN with this ad, we can derive from their tactics what type of men they are targetting.

Straight men generally don't like to see buff men's chests. For starters, it can trigger feelings of inadequacy with one's build, or confusion: "Why am I supposed to be interested in this?"

So, if it's targetting men, but the tactics seem like they would be ineffective on straight men, who's left?

In other words, this ad seems to be targetting gay and bisexual men. Which is fine, but by the very definition, advertising to gay men via pictures of topless men is pretty fucking gay.

God, how I love it when ignorant people decide to voice their uninformed opinions. If you knew anything you would understand that the reason A&F uses these extremely chiseled models is because that is the image we go for. Our look is most simply put "casual/athletic" Now if your style condradicts ours and or you cannot fit into our clothes BACK THE FUCK OFF! I'm really sick of this "The world against Abercrombie" bullshit. Just because half of you assholes are jealous of us you assume we're "gay." I'm sorry I pay a ton for my clothes but, I would think that should be my concern and noone elses. Also, notice how Abercrombie is like one of the only clothing retailers that you NEVER see advertise on TV, Newspapers, Magazines ect. Why? Walk into our store and you'll know. Grow up you fucking losers. It's really pathetic that you actually wasted time making fun of some guys wearing no shirts. So go ahead and call us gay, bi or whatever. Fact is, we get more pussy than someone like you could probly ever dream of. Bitch.

just becuz the hot models dont wea shirts doesnt mean that they're gay...loser...dont u ever take ur shirt off, toget a tan or to take a shower or to swim...all girls love the guys with their shirts off anywayz so it doesnt matter... maybe if u had a hot bod like them u wood want ur shirt off too!

Posted at November 23, 2006 01:38 AM

jose:

dude its true. just cause they have no shirt on doesnt mean anything, so lets say that a guy wants to take his shirt off he is automatically gay. dude get a fucking life, for real. go to the gym and work out. i bet u r flabby ass hell and very jealous too. LOSER

Jean-luc Aka God.:

I think it's pretty fucking generic of you guys. To be sucking my dick quite so frequently. You know what is twice as gay as what i just said the fact that this loser would write something about the company he purchases from, the fact that i am posting and reading this massive amount of garbage. I think you guys are even more gay, then both of these models.

The only thing this Guy is proving is he knows how to abuse Webster's. It's an illusionary tactic to make, guys think that Abercrombie can make them hot. It doesn't make a guy gay to desire a somewhat physical enhancement to make them more attractive to women. When you make a purchase from Abercrombie and Fitch you are buying clothing, not a 5 ft 11 cut shirtless model. It is your closed eye, and submission to trying to impress people that make your opinion ignorant.

Well, after much has been said, i must say that straight men dont like to see naked man, but bi or gay men do. girls as well, so the comfortable, and quite enxpensive clothing, at least here in Brazil, produced by them are aimed at such people, so what (question mark) If you like it, look at it and buy, buy, buy their clothes. otherwise, ram! get lost, dont give a thing. go for a walk and get toplessed yourself. use your precious time and leave the ones who like the picture alone. why all this dilemma for (qm) Nobody talked about the girl in the picture. is she gay or what She has a nice body and so (qm)... two man and a girl means a threesome and that's apealing for many as well. the aim of the campain is to get many of its publich by their sexual interest, leaving behind the beauty and appearance of their clothing. They prefer to show the attitude rather than a ordinary description of what one should wear. They are seeding ideas of attitudes. be fit, go ahead! such a couch potato! A long time ago, fatness was appropriate, but today it seems a vilain. and time goes by... cheers. any comments are welcome to my personal e-mail: jeffcoimbra@uol.com.br and my msn: coimbra_jefferson@hotmail.com

For all of you who SHOP @ Abercrombie, and all of you who WORK at Abercrombie you should know ABERCROMBIE IS PRETTY GAY! I worked at Abercrombie for 2 years and out of 5 other male brand reps (now called "models") that i worked with 3 were gay INCLUDING ME!!!! If you cant walk into abercrombie and spot out who is gay in there, weather they r working or shopping, then dont shop in there at all. Hott guys with thier shirts off...YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, definately targeting the gay male. Abercrombie is KNOWWWWWWWWWWWN across america for being gay friendly and having a huge impact in the community. Reality is...gay guys are obsessed with glamour and being vein. When you see an Abercrombie model...that means you are hott and gay guys wanna be hott. Its all a never ending cycle of body image and confusion and sexual orientation that sucks for everyone...gay and straight...its not a big issue weather its aimed towards gay or str8...sooooooooooo whats the big deal here? Abercrombie is SEMI gay in the fact that we are talking bout gay workers, gay advertising and gay shoppers...and its just as GAY to talk about it..saying its "gay"...we all need to get our "gays" right. wHAT I WANNA KNOW IS since when did GAY mean LAME, STUPID, DUMB, SILLY, CORNEY??????? I use it all the time, shit if not every day, so with that being said...THIS BLOG...ITS MADDDDDDDDDD GAY

I find it pretty messed up that you are talking mad crap about A&F when you bought a hoodie from their... sure the store idea for advertising their product different from other stores out there.. but they choise to do it their own way. And no one has ever complained like you did! And as a GAY model I dont buy there products becuase of the pictures on their walls.. I love their clothes and sure the price is a lot but its worth it. And it would like you to stop assuming that models with their shirt off are gay not every model is gay some are happly married. So if your favorite person thats a dude and took off his shirt does that make him gay? i dont think so... so yea i just find it messed up that your talking mad crap and if you have a problem with it then just dont buy anything from there shot more clothes for me then haha

Posted at January 16, 2007 05:57 PM

David Barrett:

I would just like to state for the record that I have never purchased any Abercrombie and Fitch clothing or other merchandise, nor do I intend to... their pretentious and ridiculous advertising is too much for me.

I'm typing this on a MacBook Pro for fucks sake, and I can still make that comment with a straight face.

Besides, their clothes just aren't that good.

Why are people taking so much offence? Perhaps you associate too much with the brand of an INHUMAN, UNPERSONABLE, CASH-FEASTING CORPORATION. For fucks sake, it's just a clothes store.

Grow up, kids.

PS: I'm disgusted by all the "poor" comments here, not because of anything personal to me, but quite frankly it shows a rather horrendous attitude towards the disadvantaged and the disenfranchised.

PPS: Yeah Chris, I agree; this blog is pretty gay.

First of all...this is the most immature shit i have ever stumbled upon on the internet. Every clothing company or fashion designer has his/ her own idea of how they would like to market their clothing. It just so happens that abercrombie uses very good looking men and women to do so...i personally do not think that just because this clothing line features shirtless "ripped" men, means that it is gay. Do you think that high fashion designers target Goth's and Punk's with all that heavy makeup and Extremly wierd hair-do's...no...its just adds to the image. That is my Opinion.

Posted at February 4, 2007 11:07 PM

People call the store gay because they cant look like half the people that work there. I have alot of freinds that are Store mngrs and sales people..Most people think they are stuck up...There NOT...I could only hope more hot guys are gay there..i would date every one of them.

hey, whats the point for a blog like this, serious question!! why piss someone else off?? the clothes are awesome, if u don't think so then don't buy them (pretty simple) the point of a picture like this isn't the clothes, its the life style of someone who wares the clothes.. these guys seem like their having a good time so u might think well thats appealing so i'll buy it... this ad in particular isn't a great example but majority of their ads are that way.

Well, here in the UK we all think A&F is as gay as fuck.

But we don't care because unlike, your lunacy, it's ok to be what ever the fuck you want in this fine island of tours.

in fact, that's the only reason anyone likes it. you'll probably find that a large percentage of their sales come from gays in the UK.

I'm sure they wouldn't be half as big as they are if gays didn't shop there.

also, i've never seen a blog asking "how black is Rocawear?" because, that would be considered offensive, but somehow you seem to think that this may be acceptable?

you have alot to learn my friends.

alot to learn.

Chris-is-a-fag:

ur just a jealous douche cause u cant afford clothes with as much style as A&F. Just cause theres a couple shirtless guys in an add, doesn't make them gay. You see women in swimsuits in adds, that doesn't make them lesbains. For all we know, sure some of the models could be gay. That has NOTHING to do with the advertisement or the store. gay people have as much right to do w/edf they want in this world. Get a grip u loser.

why would you say abercrombie is gay if you are the one who bought a hoodie there and liked it so much you wanted to order two more.

Posted at March 13, 2007 12:17 AM

David Barrett:

I have already stated that I have never purchased anything from Abercrombie and Fitch. This fact has not changed.

As for the poor stuff?

a) I earn a lot of money; as I found out recently, more than most doctors, which is a scary thought.

b) If someone is actually poor, don't you think they have enough problems without you being a dick about it?

I don't really comprehend the backlash, unless:

1) You think that something as obviously homoerotic as three guys who just happen to be hanging about with their clothes off is not actually homoerotic.

2) You think that homoerotic imagery is not at all gay. Which is more than a bit stupid.

3) You hate gay people, because you believe that to call someone "gay" is a slur upon their character as opposed to a term that could ever be accurate and descriptive.

I can hear it now: "O, that's not a 'gay bar', that's just a bar where men go to pick up other men."

But hang on, we are not even talking about a person here! We are talking about a multi-million dollar corporation who does not give a shit about you.

Kirk:

To start, abercrombie is a really gay name. Think about it...look at the picture at the beginning of the blog...there's the names Abercrombie and Fitch above two guys standing right by eachother...a picture says a thousand words!

If you've been to Las Vegas recently you might've seen poster adds for the show "Thunder From Down Under" all over the damn place. Google image it...it's a bunch of guys standing around without their shirts on. I don't know how smart you guys are but when I see that picture I instantly know that "Thunder down under" is definately not about straight guys with their shirts off.

Abercrombie is exactly the same. they've got pictures of GUYS not a guy but GUYS standing around without their shirts.
I went to one of those stores...the smell was intense and the pictures they had there! FUCK! There was a picture of a guy and his jeans were basically down to his crotch with no underwear! I don't know how straight you guys are but I'll never again be seen in a store with pictures of guys naked unless I'm shopping for what those guys are wearing...UNDERWEAR! FUCK! You've got guys in underwear all around you and you're buying a polo shirt! I guess it's supposed to be an added bonus...

Michelle:

First of all, Abercrombie is not a gay name. The company is named after two people, David Abercrombie and Ezra Fitch. That is why it is called Abercrombie. It was not out of the blue.

And honestly, most girls are attracted to guys that wear nice clothes. I know my friends are. It is one of the first things we notice. Good clothes is an added bonus. Not every girl wants a little skater boy punk person.

Doug:

I have to agree...A&F are pretty gay and this is coming from a gay man. Sorry. I'm not saying the people who go there are gay or anything like that but the ads are very homosexual. It's nothing for A&F to be ashamed of. I think it's cool that some companies are actually targeting homosexuals. See most of you don't understand because most of you are straight and the media is directed mostly entirely toward straight, white, christians (which IS the majority). So let it be. I mean jesus, where you shop does not make you gay or straight. I've shopped at A&F, J.C. Pennies, Old Navy, Wal-Mart, Hot Topic and any where else you could think and I'm STILL GAY! You've probably shopped in all these places and YOU'RE STILL STRAIGHT! Where you shop doesn't make you who you are your life does. Get over it.

Bryan Who cares?:

Well, i have few a&f products which i have obtained through my freidns over the years but one thing i would like to add is as though the picture may appear gay they are getting paid to look gay so i would look gay for the kind of money they make but on the other hand their clothing line sucks and they are assumed gay.

I live in London and all male imagery is no regarded as gay - if you are in anyway sophisticated you will understand their marketing strategy - very similar to Calvin Klein - Make your image and product homo erotic and you will appeal to gay people and females - females see the product as sexual and (sublimally) so will straight men (not homophobes)- women bought Calvin for their boyfriens in the (niave) hope that the image would rub of onto their partner and men (gay or straight) secretly hoped they would turn into that sexual demi god in the ads. Same with A&F

My dear sweet enigma (how apt) I think not, I have been in marketing for many years no company would 'damage' their image in the way guys on this site are saying - the company is extremely image conscious and would not try to damage themselves.

a&f junkie:

I just want to say that the name Abercrombie and Fitch is not gay. It's named after two men who owned separate companies that sold sports gear (clothes, equipment, etc...) Through the years they combined, forming the fucking awesome clothing manufacturer that we know now. To that guy who was commenting on the wannabe preps, what the hell's wrong with being a prep. Preps are pretty hot.

1) Some of you need to learn proper grammar and spelling.
2) Who care’s about how much money the company is making? Isn’t that the point of business? Not too many people start a business to make “okay” money.
3) David your placing a lot of emphasis on how the company is being “INHUMAN, UNPERSONABLE, CASH-FEASTING CORPORATION”, but brother most corporations are, it's in their nature.
4) If a company can price an item high and still sell it, they will do so and long as the demand is there.
5) Why does it matter who’s buying the clothes? Gay or not? Gay people buy food, does that make food gay? Some of you need to stop being ignorant bigots. David try not to place an emphasis on “gay” as being a negative connotation, that’s probably why everyone is getting so aggressive towards the issue.
6) Your title “How gay is Abercrombie and Fitch?” should actually be, “Why do I care about a company I don’t even purchase merchandise from?”
7) This topic is completely subjective and regardless of the amount of comments made, it wont be resolved. The only pleasure you’ll get out of it is a few laughs. (from some of the spelling and irrational as well as ignorant comments made)
8) All you Abercrombie and Hollister purchasers: instead of buying 3 of those superficial items, but 1 or 2 and donate the money you would have spent to a foundation or organization that supports less fortunate people… People are starving all over the world.

I totally agree with this guy ^^^^ a child dies in Africa every 3 seconds from starvation and most of you are out buying $20 - $30 T-SHIRTS?! Let’s talk about that rather than all of your homophobic tendencies! You could feed an African family of 4 for a week with the price of ONE T-Shirt. Get your heads out of your Asses and make a difference in the world. That family or child will remember you, who’s going to remember the clothes you had on last month?/ and who’s going to care?

caitlyn:

why don't you go and save the fucking world then, Stacey.. I’m sure you're just as big of a consumer as everybody else..
do you make your own clothes and use all your money to feed the hungry in Africa?
I’m not saying sponsoring the poor in a 3rd world country is a stupid idea, I’m just pointing out the fact that just because you bought a 30 dollar t shirt, doesn't mean you don't care about the starving families in Africa. Let alone are probably the only ones who can afford to sponsor anybody
don't make yourself out to be such a fucking god.

it's just a business like any other..

David Barrett:

Hi Johan, thanks for one of the more sensible comments. You must be over twenty :)

> David your placing a lot of emphasis on how the company is being “INHUMAN, UNPERSONABLE, CASH-FEASTING CORPORATION”, but brother most corporations are, it's in their nature.

I am very much aware that this is the nature of most corporations. The reason I brought it up is that some people seem NOT to be aware of this. It's just a company, it's not your friend.

> Why does it matter who’s buying the clothes? Gay or not? Gay people buy food, does that make food gay? Some of you need to stop being ignorant bigots. David try not to place an emphasis on “gay” as being a negative connotation, that’s probably why everyone is getting so aggressive towards the issue.

I'm not placing an emphasis on "gay" as having a negative connotation. I'm saying that three half-naked dudes just hanging out; well, that's pretty gay. It's definitely homoerotic imagery and homoerotic imagery is pretty fucking gay.

I'm not stating any opinion on whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. But I don't think we should be afraid to say things are gay because "O no, people might think we mean gay in a BAD way". For example, two men having sex is pretty fucking gay. This isn't a value judgement... it's a statement of fact.

I think people are getting so aggressive because they forget that Abercrombie and Fitch is just a corporation, AND they associate the word "gay" with an insult. So they react defensively and, quite frankly, hilariously.

> Your title “How gay is Abercrombie and Fitch?” should actually be, “Why do I care about a company I don’t even purchase merchandise from?”

Perhaps you are over-estimating the amount of time I have dedicated to this whole thing? Not much. And don't try to dictate my actions.

Posted at May 16, 2007 06:14 AM

Alex:

I have two opinions ^.^

One:

To the people saying the store is NOT gay: Have you ever walked INTO an abercrombie and fitch store? Usually, there's a picture of a giant man wearing briefs and nothing else with a steroid crafted body.

Casual athletic, my ass. I've been in pro swimming and running for years. I don't look like that, and unless I start getting assrammed while doing situps,probably won't.

The interior of the store has bright lamps blaring soft colors like baby pink,piss yellow, ect., on the patrons,and clothes.The inside of the store is dim, the clothes skanky, and whatever the hell is with the ripped jeans you pay 80$ for, when the rips even look piss stained yellow. There's techno-pop blaring, the kind you hear in almost ALL gay strip clubs.Oh, and for a few others, going to harass me? Giving a hand job to your buddy one night, or participating in a circle jerk, is GAY.

There's also the fact that it's an affiliate of XY Magazine, once publicly stated the clothes were for the effeminate male, and I don't know what in the hell IMAGE you're trying to convey, but it SCREAMS I'm a gay man spending daddy or hubbies money..


That's like 8 opinions though >.>

Whoops...byes! My url is MySpace, also the gayest site on the web. Cause I'm pink like that.

wow!:

okay i cant believe yall are making such a big deal of ONE picture i mean anyone can start a big thing over that..but there are other pictures like guys and girls. Oh my gosh can you believe that? When you go into the store you may be able to point out a few gays, but where can you not?

Now, when the other people say you can't afford it, thats only because they have nothing else to say.

But i wear A&F and so do almost all of my friends, and by the way i have no gay friends. I'm only relpying to something like this is because im bored and for anyone else who is replying to this because they are angry with it is pretty lame.

Who cares what other people think..just buy what you want and wear it with confidence!

Kelton:

Some of the people in this string are identifying way too closely with a corporation - by tying your identities so closely with fashion, you are offended? Weird. I don't here anyone getting this mad about Kenneth Cole, or Macy's or any old store that sells clothes. The fact is some people on this string are more concerned with money and "A Look" then they are with being kind human beings eganged in discussion.

What's with the name calling? Loser? Teenagers talk this way, not people whose opinions we should take seriously.

Gay = negative unless you want to buy that. If so, your delusion, not mine. Many people who post have fabulous bodies and smiles, and some used to and now know better. Learn from experience kids.

Eventually, you will get old, and (at least) more fat or skinny, possibly loose your hair, and possibly your money to the drugs that will fill the void of your self esteem long after fashion looses your interest.

People matter, and we're more similar than you think or want to think. People say that being gay is a choice - I can buy that on the principle that I choose whom I sleep with. What about your choices? Do you choose to respond like an animal, all teeth and claw? Violence over affection is lame, not being gay.

That's why me & my BFF are 100% anti -Abercrombie and society's personal opionion's will NOT change our minds...


Posted at May 20, 2007 01:06 AM

Paul:

First of all, lol to Bree's comment. Roman Catholics don't believe everyone should be themselves, they are against anything and everything, including the usage of condoms in developing countries where AIDs is a big epidemic.
On to the main topic:
It seems that the majority of people in here are stupid or blind; David is quite correct, Abercrombe and Fitch is pretty gay.
I would firstly like all of you to understand what the word gay means, in modern terms it is defined as homosexuality. Homosexuality is being sexually attracted to the same sex, i.e. boy fancies boy, or girl fancies girl.
Firstly, this advertisement is not aimed at females; it is promoting male clothing and was sent to a male customer, thus when producing this image, they had the target market in mind as being male.
Now, let's study this picture in detail. It seems to me that approximately 60-70% of the image is of the naked male body, some well defined ones at that. To me this seems to be very homoerotic, and to anyone that disagrees, please explain why straight males should enjoy looking at naked men? So you say that if a man looks at that they will think 'look at that body, it's mighty fine, I wish I had a body like that'. That thought process was one of a gay man.
Now I've never been in an Abercrombie shop, nor do I know what their clothing looks like, but it is quite plain to a logical and rational thinking mind, that they are quite gay.
I don't think there is any argument against this, hence if you do respond in negativity towards my post, you must be a moron.

a&f is not guy! its not amazing , but you guys gotta understand that people have different styles, you might think its guy while others wear it and others that wear it might think your clothes is gay, just dont get into there buisness

Posted at May 20, 2007 09:18 PM

mE:

Actually being an Abercrombie employee...they are trying to target straight women actually. To by clothing for there "other" mens. Maybe that will answer this question. lol Give me a break, OF COURSE GAY MEN ARE GOING TO BE TARGETED. Look at these ads..very "homoerotic"

Posted at May 22, 2007 11:04 PM

mE Again:

There was a study done if I remember correctly, Abercrombie targets straight women, and what do straight women and gay men have in common...MEN.

The photographer for this company is indeed a gay male, but to each his own...think what you must. Does it really matter, the clothes are hot, if its your style.

ED:

First off: A&F isnt really that great. Their style is bland, and even though it doesnt cost that much, its still too expensive for a t-shirt that just says A&F on the breast pocket. I mean geez the designers could at least put more creativity in it. I'm getting kinda sick of people sayin things like "rich people and people with style buy A&F" and people who brag abut it sayin "i shop at A&F" and A&F is awesome!!" i mean its ok to like sumthin but COME ON PEOPLE are u blind? its ok at best. If u want real style, u should shop for REAL designer clothing like Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein, Diesel, Vince, Hugo Boss, Juicy Culture, Gucci, Versace, Ed Hardy, Zara, Von Dtch, and clothes like that. I'm sure you've all heard of them, but if u havent then your just uncultured and ignorant. I buy those clothes cuz they were made by REAL designers.

Second: A&F DOES target homosexuals as well as str8 people. But that doesnt make it 100% gay. There's nothing wrong with targeting the gay community. Gay people wear clothes too u know.

Wow. I just find it highly amusing that pretty much the majority of the people who are getting all defensive have horrendous grammar/spelling/whatever.

If you're going to be all defensive, you could at least do it with a little pride. I mean heck, when you go around defending stuff with grammar and spelling that makes others (mine especially) want to bleed, all that does is give your side/opinion a bad name, which *shouldn't* be what you are going for.

Anyways, I would like to say something about the actual topic now... I've been a pretty avid hater of all the Abercrombie lines for a while, just because of their ways of advertising and because they're just not well made enough for their price tag. And it's really not a "rich person" thing, in my opinion. Anyways, if one is truly rich, they don't *need* to go around flaunting it. Heck, most probably would try to avoid it and go low key.

Posted at May 26, 2007 05:06 AM

AbErCrOmBiEqT:

ur right too ed... kuz i mean it is kinda expensive for the style... they could put a little more effort into designing the clothes... everytime something new comes out its like identical to the one before it... so ur right those other names obviously have more style kuz they are made by runway pro's... well some anyway

Abercrombie is soo far from gay, Its such a good store. Too bad you cant afford it =)

Posted at May 28, 2007 03:17 PM

Wowser...:

Okay jeeze louise this is getting kinda serious aint it...although, I must say it's made my day of illness at home quite amusing.

The way I see it - why so much anger? The creator of this was making an observation, and if you didn't agree, you didn't hafta get so darn worked up!!! I agree that it's just a corporation and isn't your friend...it's not like this guy is insulting your best friend or something!!!

Secondly, why slag off people without alot of money? "Just because you can't afford this"...what does money have to do in an argument about whether this corporation has homosexual imagery?

The fact is, things are interpreted in different ways. "A panda eats shoots and leaves". Corny, I know, but different interpretations.

And as for generalizing whole countries opinions and mind sets...woah woah woah guys, I'm from England and I don't have the same views as the Queen, or everyone in Britain, just like not all of us sit around drinking tea in bowler hats...

This thing has gotten waaaay too far and waaaay too personal. I can see this guys point of view, and I agree that this particular picture could be interpreted in a homosexual sense. On the other hand, I also agree that it can be interpreted as a subliminal message type thing to say to guys "you can look like this" or to girls "your bf could look like this" [or "damn, this campaign is dead hot"...].

Gay or straight, what does it matter? If you like the clothes, buy them. If you don't, then don't. Don't slag off peoples sexuality/financial state/opinions. I myself am going to purchase a pair of A&F jeans, and I'm very much a heterosexual teenage girl.

And, do any of you ever think the guys have too many muscles? Or is that just me? I mean, I do like muscles, but not that many...lol.

Posted at May 28, 2007 10:14 PM

"A panda eats shoots and leaves"

Wow, that was such a corny example, but I really love it! I am inspired by it.

And yeah, I personally don't like guys with too many muscles. Especially when they get pumped up with steroids and their veins are like bulging. THAT is scary.

In whole, I really liked your comment though.. It, like your panda thing, was truly inspiring.

I was just skimming through, but I guess I am kind of shocked by the use of the word "gay" to mean "unattractive" (ie "These guys are hot, don't call them gay!"), "bad" ("A&F is a GOOD brand, it's not gay!"), or "stupid" ("You're gay, shut up!"). Obviously tons of people use the word in this context, but such a volume of slurring all at once was kind of...wedijfkjjdf.

The picture is just clever advertising. Every human has a quasi-erotic relationship with every other, so subliminally, everyone viewing the ad will think, "Hella sexy. Is this the Hella Sexy people brand? Will it make me/my lover more Hella Sexy? Fux awezome."

Well I have two comments to make...first A&F models are hot and would make anyone horny just by looking at them...but the clothing is not as expensive as you think...maybe in the south...but if you have not noticed...they are not the only clothing store that sales expensive clothing...they have poor quality clothing to me and their clothes wear out too fast. And to the dombass that said A&F is the best...well what an dombfuck...obviously you have never heard of lacoste, Fendi, Hugo Boss, DKNY, Gucci, etc. Come to NY some time and there will be plenty of people there to show you how it would cost about ten hoodies, ten jeans(even ezra fitch) from A&F to buy a t-shirt from a store in SOHO...(for people who don't know what this is it is the most expensive street/area in NY)

I think the prices are alright, but AnF IS pretty expensive for what they are offering. All their clothes do look the same to me and it does make some guys look gay. But here where I live, AnF is more of an asian thing. I don't know why, but it seems to me that every asian person wears AnF like everyday. People also take it as a status symbol. Since the nearest AnF is like 30 miles away and everyone in this area is 'ghetto', it's fun to hear people say "OMG he's wearing AnF," because AnF is supposedly expensive. haha. Personally, I don't like AnF that much. I wear it for the status symbol, and because all the asian girls love guys who wear AnF, mwahaha. Also, I do think people make fun of AnF because of their own personal insecurities.

Angie ~ Luv:

Um... all these comments were...interesting. I just wanted to say that AnF is a normal store just like gap or pacsun. People just seem to like it and it's what's in right now. So, if you don't like it, nobody cares. It's popular anyway, and your opinion doesn't really matter. Asian people do wear AnF or Hollister, because that's where the clothing is made. In Asia. Also, people who say the quality is good... It's not. It's pretty bad. It tears easily, and there was never one time when I bought something at Hollister of Abercrombie that something wasn't flawed. There was always either a tear, or something was over-stretched. Same with AE. Remember that Asian (most of them) people are very fast and dynamic. They can't spend all there time on one thing. Therefore, the quality is not as good as it should be. And AnF or all the other stores seriously overprice it for what it's worth. A shirt that they make would probably be worth like 10 dollars for me. I still shop there, but they lack originality and style. It's what's in, so just go with it and don't be a hater. I shop there because I love the clothes and they fit me really good. I honestly encourage people who cant afford Abercrombie and Fitch to shop at PacSun or American Eagle. They aren't THAT overpriced... and most of it's like the same stuff. :) ~~angie

Wow, that is some pretty intense yapping that's been going on in this thread. I mean, my friends and I have all noticed that there's a lot of half-naked guys standing around together--although, the majority of our comments have been along the lines of "manboobs," "steroid abuse, much?" and "oh my god, I have been blinded by the extreme lack of taste in plastering pictures of half-naked people on the window" (though that part is really no worse than Victoria's Secret). It's not a big deal. Get over it. The models' sex lives are (a) none of your business and (b) irrelevant. The quality of clothing and its prices have nothing to do with the original post and is something that commenters brought up themselves. The assumption that people are poor, fat, unattractive, gay, and etc. for criticizing Abercrombie & Fitch is incredibly immature and makes your case look even worse, if that were possible.

And, frankly, using the word "gay" as a derogatory term makes you all sound uneducated, narrow-minded, and not worth anyone's time. Grow up; you aren't twelve years old anymore, and the original post was neither critical nor personal.

READ THISSSSSS IT SHOWS HOW FUCKING STUPID PPL AREEEE!!!!!!!!


ok heres the deal (brian/HEY/blank) <yea ok ur the ppl who just say 'i agree' and not write ur own opinion. i think tht you should all know....did you try to think for a second which kind ov gay he ment? there is gay as in uncool or gay as in the (guy with guy relation). ok now from davids writing you cnt tell which he ment so b4 defending something find out what ur fighting for smart asses.DUH. and second if ur saying gay as in uncool ur talking about a coorporation making billions ov dollars across the globe...and personaly ive seen like one a and f comercial in my entire life. so if they arent cool how many other very successful companies can you point at and say "woah all the people ov this generation go to this store and this store doesnt even have comercials to advertise." and if fucking david said gay as in (guy with guy) hey newsflash! they use the magazine to appeal to women,girls,straight guy tht want to know what the hot bod is, and gay guys tht tend to like the pictures.DUH! tht just shows tht ummmm its the 21 st century EH HEM!! so abercrombie is trying to attrack all different kindds ov buyers ther just trying to cell ther merchandise.so i suggest we all get back to our lives...imagine how many opinios we read.....and the time we took to write our own..and getting in stupid fights with ppl we dont know over clothes.HAHA!
ok well tenks for reading :]

P.S.
ellen yea we make grammar and spelling mistakes cuz we dont feel likewriting the whole word SMART ASS!so get over urself sweetie havent you ever chatted on aim? with ur bitchy mood im guessing you dont have frnds to chat with (=

P.S.
i lovee abercrombie and yea ppl who dont buy frm there doesnt mean ther poor.DUH!maybe they like other styles or abercrombie doesnt carry their sizes..in which case ther probabli jealous or angry but what ever....who really fucking gives a shit?!?!?!

Wow, this is crazy! Its called a marketing campaign, people. Every company has one. The reason they have half naked men in the posters is because this company has learned and proved that sex sells. Also, its because their largest clientel is young straight women and gay men. Look up some of the old color photos before the company became popular. Everyone male and female are nude showing butts and even topless women. From working at the store it seems that they can still get away with having half naked men, because as soon as there is a woman showing too much skin, the moms of the teeny-bopper girls start bitching to high heaven that its inappropriate. They seem to not care about the guys. There is a new poster of a topless women over the register now, that will probably cause a stirr. Anyway, i can see why straight men would think A&F is gay, however, they're not gay: they're smart. Why should they waste money marketing to a small part of their sales when they can attract their two biggest clientel in one blow.

Joe:

I'm gona make this short and simple... the very second that you guys are making fun of those shirtless models and calling them gay, they are most likely having sex with hot women, also the reason they have shirtless models advertising their clothes is because it's appealing, what would you rather have, a fatass (kinda like the guy who started this blog) representing your cloth line?

Um - David... you don't know much about "Marketing" or "Advertising" do you?

It's all image and brand perception - hot guys and girls wear A&F - at least that's what A&F wants people to think. It's called market positioning and brand demand.

You wear A&F and you're like those hotties on the wall. Somtimes a cigar is actually only a cigar.

Okay here's the deal.
When you buy a piece of clothing from abercrombie, the only thing that separates it from a normal, $5 tanktop is the stupid little moose on the left hand corner. Everything at abercrombie is too tight, and the shorts there are so short they should be illegal. Do we really want to see size 12 girls wearing shorts that barely cover their asses? Honestly, the clothes there are overpriced. When you buy a shirt from abercrombie and go out, you see like 10 other people wearing the same stupid shirt as you. Abercrombie and Fitch is for clones who have no personal sense of style.

They just cant have logical thoughts, ideas or get irony at all in that continent. Dear God, you would swear that a&f were the life blood of their country. you would think that there would be more pressing things on their minds, given the state of their nation and the destruction they cause world wide. get your priorities straight guys and girls and learn to take comments like the above for what they are-an observation.

Abram McCawley:

I really think that yall have a problem by trying to start some stupid shit. If the models are gay or not thats their business. As for the company, I think that they are one of the smartest clothing companies in the world to have such sexy models without iniciating homosexual conotations. I mean I'm gay but that doesn't mean that gay guys only shop there or that straight men should be intimidated by those type of pictures. If a guy is truely confident in his sexuality it shouldn't bother him to be in a store like that, so maybe the main portion of the guys in the store are actually straight and aren't intimidated by the picturs, and want to look good in the tight clothes. While a gay man might not be able to control himself in that store!!! So fuck off!!! Your so stupid to even have started this; actually to be more honest, you probably just started this to get to meet more gay guys. You're such a skeez!!!

I am sorry for the people who do not like a&f, you do not have to... by the way. just because something is different from what you are use to, does not mean you should act immature about it.... i am a pretty cool girl and i am easy to talk to so if i wear a&f dont think i wont say hello or have a nice day. : )

Get over it. Yeah the models or hot, whether a guy or a girl thinks so. I'm a girl, I'm straight, I shop there a lot- I want the guy models and hey the girl models are hot too. Like big deal. I really don't think David was in anyway using the word gay in derogatory terms, he was just making an observation. Stop being an ass.

We were essentially reading this just for kicks, and decided that most of you are too bitter to be straight. Why would you back a store so adamently?

Posted at July 24, 2007 02:11 AM

Charlie:

Thank you Ray, I appreciate the support on this ridiculous issue. =]
Even for religion though, not everyone has the same exact oppinions. That's why there are so many different denominations within the Christian religion and others as well. As long as it doesn't deviate from the main source of being, then it's ok, but you've still got to watch others' words. Once you leave the church you grew up in also, you'll probably find that no one church is exactly like that one church you grew up in.

Tyler, Fashiongirl's point wasn't that Abercrombie was expensive, what she was saying in her first post was that it was cheap and nothing like high-end designers. She said that Abercrombie's clothes were horrible and ghetto looking, and that's not necessarily a compliment even if ghetto is considered cool. (I'm not saying it's bad, I'm just saying that it's probably not your ideal place to be or live)
I don't know if she feels like that in reality, but you're getting a different view from what she actually wrote.

1.) They're the originals. Hollister totally copied.

2.) Look at their clothes. They're awesome!

3.) The models are soooooooo hot. They make you want to lick the pictures.

4.) Abercrombie is considered a designer brand.

5.) Celebrities wear it.

6.) The fragrances smell so good so you will too.

7.) If you wear a lot of Abercrombie you are considered rich.

8.) Wearing the clothes makes you feel closer to the extremely hot models.

9.) Most of the Abercrombie models (male) always have their shirts off.

10.) The clothes look good on almost everyone.

(I FOUND THIS LISTON A WEBSITE)

WHAT FUCK !!!! why do they lie!!

First of all, Ray and I are not gay, we did not get kicked out of a church (we go to a church... obviously).
And sorry about my false assumation. That's just what it sounded like to me (about Abercrombie being ghetto).
If you don't care so much about Abercrombie (since it seems like you hate the place), why are you so adamently replying and bashing everyone who actually likes the place? If you don't like it THIS much, why should you care about insulting it? Do you really get that much satisfaction from all your mudslinging?

Ray:

wow, i have all the same questions that Charlie just asked. also, did you ever think that some people don't have all this money to spend on great clothes so they have to buy the stuff that's "cheap" copies. WHO FRIGGIN CARES!!!

FASHION GIRL:

are you DONE!!!!!!! RAY OR Charlie????

LIKE YOU SAID "People are entitled to their oppinions"

SO I DOING MAY THING IF YOU DONT LIKE IT LEAVE!!! IM NOT TRYING TO BE MEAN OR ANYTHING??

Posted at July 27, 2007 02:21 AM

Charlie:

Sorry for attacking you as you seem to have taken it in that manor. But you say that you're not trying to be mean when you apparently are. You are using harsh language and ways of putting your words to get your point across which usually tends to have a "mean-type" message smacked across it's forhead. Although I am sorry to have cornered you like this.

ok you peeps just dont like a&f bc you can't afford it! well all i have to say to you is....
TOO BAD
lol

Posted at July 29, 2007 11:56 PM

Charlie:

nikpags, That's not why I dislike A&F. That is a reason for it, but I like Hot Topic and their merchandise is expensive also. I still shop there. So it may be ONE of the reasons, but that is definately not the ONLY reason that people don't like A&F.

Posted at July 30, 2007 04:00 PM

Tannis:

ok.. you are all wrong! abercrombie is the best store in like the whole world! its so not gay! those pics are hot!!!! and i just went there yesterday and i got like 10 shirts for 100$ that is a good deal! (in the clearence) but i think its the best store in the world!

Charlie:

I'm actually starting to get sick of laughing at people's comments like "You're all just jealous that you're not as hott as the models in the picture."
Actually, no, I'm not jealous. I really don't even care about being hott. It's overated and guys would only like me for what I look like. So whatever. I'm just getting sick of this. I think I won't comment anymore.

Wow... can I just say I think that Charlie and Ray are the most awesome people on this blog?! I find it amazing that they were able to so quickly change the subject of the blog (a blog that has been going on for over a year might I add...). Kudos!

Posted at August 5, 2007 10:07 PM

Del:

Topless men... hmmm, what to say... I guess all you can really say about topless men is that they don't have shirts on... some are hot and some are not:)

Posted at August 6, 2007 10:08 PM

Del:

Come on people. I mean, really... Abercrombie is a company that sells clothes that are appealing to some, and not to others. They use a very sex-based sales approach, and are very successful. There really isn't much more to say. I personally think that the subject of topless men is much more interesting than whether or not Abercrombie is gay.

Posted at August 7, 2007 01:18 AM

tiffany:

u are fucking gay
thats all i have to say

Posted at August 7, 2007 02:52 AM

Mike:

So you all make it seem like being gay is wrong and despicable. I think it's time a gay guy said something. Whether A&F is gay or not it doesn't matter. To tell you the truth, I've seen gay, bi, and straight men wear A&F. You all need to learn some respect too, the use of the term Fag is offensive and should not be used. Why not try to be a little more grown up and civilized?

Posted at August 7, 2007 04:03 PM

Charley:

I agree with Del and kinda mike. Some people are going to like the abercrombie clothes and others arnt. Just becuase you dont like them dosent mean they are gay. the topless men pic to attract costomers. and i gotta say i think it works becuase i go there and i like there clothes. This convo is tottaly opinion based so its kinda a waste of time lol! some people like them some dont....

Posted at August 7, 2007 04:48 PM

amanda:

they are sooo fucking HOT!! are you people blind?!
shut the fuck up! i'm married to an Abercrombie and Fitch model. soo fucking sexy. you people have no lives. you guys are pretty gay yourselves commenting on how "fucking gay abercrombie is..."
bottom line is go fuck yourselves! ;)
no hard feelings. i LOVE abercrombie, you should too.

Posted at August 7, 2007 05:33 PM

Del:

Guess what Tiffany... I AM so fucking gay:) and I'm not ashamed of it. Gay people are very normal and most of them are quite friendly and easy to get along with. As a gay man, I love Abercrombie and Fitch, but contrary to popular opinion, I don't buy their clotes because of the topless men. I buy them because they are very comfortable and the style appeals to me:)

Posted at August 7, 2007 11:15 PM

BTW, thanks Charley:)

I guess that I'm just not a big fan of swearing and if I'm going to post somewhere, I'd like it to be "Swear Free." I am a Christian and I have Christian morals (Or at least I try to).
Does anyone else like to sworn at? No, I'm not so sure they do.


Topless men? Is that SERIOUSLY what happened to this? *laughs*

Oh by the by, Del, you are awesome =D *laughs* I love your posts. (I guess I'm just not so great at defending myself).

charley:

ok...amanda thanks for agreeing with me but you tottaly just cancled out everything i said. I said it was opinion based..and you aparently have a very stong opinion on the subject. wich is fine but that dosent mean other peoples are. and del im not but gay guys are awsom lol! i love em!!!

Posted at August 8, 2007 02:02 AM

Del:

Thank you Charley and Charli:) It's always nice to hear that someone likes your point of view:) And about the swearing thing, I'm not a big fan myself... I was merely repeating Tiffany's words (see Tiffany's post) for context purposes:) And one other thing... when you are gay, you tend to develop a good sense of humor (you kind of have to, to avoid being swallowed up alive), and things like this posting thread just tend to make you laugh:)

Posted at August 8, 2007 03:03 AM

Charlie:

Exactly, you don't have to like each others' oppinions and you definately don't have to agree with the oppinions or choices, but you should still respect a person.

Maybe I should have specified, ahem, I wasn't necessarily saying that to you, Del, about the swearing thing. I know that you were quoting Amanda. So it's okay I guess.

Posted at August 8, 2007 04:23 AM

Del:

Thanks Charlie:) I love your point of view. You are one of the few people on this blog who have been consistently objective with your comments, and that is highly respectable. You rock!:)

Posted at August 8, 2007 04:33 AM

Charlie:

*Laughs*
Thanks again Del. *Smiles*
I guess that I have to stay objective because I am an art and literature student. It's best to look through the Writers' or Artists' eyes to see what they were thinking. If the artwork or piece of writing is non-fiction, you don't have to agree with their point-of-view (like I said before).

Mr.Muscle:

I like these clothes, they make me look good. And what about this "gay" thing?

Well first off, it's not the clothes that makes you gay.
So stop this stupidity.
Think everyone that got a good body with their shirt off is gay?

... Gee, ever traveld to ibiza or spain and been at the beach during summer you dumb/jelous american?

Besides stop putting so much intresst in gays, if you aint gay then you might just let em be aswell, or are you trying to hide your own insecurity? hehe

I mean, i bet they dont care what you do with your wife in bed at night, so why do you care what they do?

Cause your cristian? well obviusly you haven't read the bibel to notice some things we do daily to "look good" is a sin aswell, just the church got hooked up on the male and female marriage part sorta.

Besides, it's up to god to say whats wrong and right and take action in the afterlife, not us human, we got our own free will for a reason.

Make love not war, and that goes for everyone.
Love is never wrong. Only in the eyes of one-way-minded people.

Learn that and grow up.

Btw Sunraise festival was great this year in poland! I went there with my wife ;D
Look for it on google :)

Posted at August 16, 2007 12:32 PM

Charlie:

Mr. Muscle, are you talking to me when you talk about the Christian faith in your post? Because if you are, you should read my posts more carefully because I'm not exactly bashing anyone. I'm mostly only asking people to back off a little and be more friendly to other posters and the creator of this blog. Just because I'm not a fan of the gay idea doesn't mean I hate gay people.

2. Did it ever occur to you that women shop more than men and for them... and this ad is trying to appeal to women?

I think you're all immature for fighting over it.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, so why argue, leave each other alone. You all are hypocrites, you scream about them being immature for calling them gay, but then you go right around and say how they must be fat and ugly and poor, kind of rude I think. I hate adults. xD!

I'm only 14, and I have a better sense of things.

Jeez.

Del:

I check this blog every few days just so I can read the responses that people post. It's sad to see so much controvesry over such an innane subject. I do enjoy, however, seeing people post thier opinions. I think it's good to have your voice heard, but I don't think all the vulgarity is really necessary. Call me old-fashioned, but I think that clean, mature language conveys a message much more clearly and respectfully than a foul language-filled paragraph. If all the swear words were removed from most of these posts, the message would be conveyed much more clearly and concisely:)

Jeez You guys.......
Do ya'll really love or hate A&F so much ya'll have to swear so much???????


For everybody who said " your to "poor" to buy A&F clothing" ok, just becuase people don't shop @ A&F doesn't mean they are poor.....I am Middle CLass and I can afford A&F, I just choose not to. I am a junior in high school and i see it EVERYWHERE! It kills me!!! Tell me everybody, where else do you shop????

Me * Areopostale
* Bebe
* Express
* American Eagle
etc.............. Note: A&F is not included in my list... Do we all REALLY have to dress the same??? I mean, come ON!!! My BFF still wears turtlenecks for goodness sacks and he is a Sophomore in H.S. and I am very proud of him too...

Seriously, may God's blessing be apon you all.... let's seriously change this sick world.....

Ok about the gayness of that ad. True it is targeted to men. True they are shirtless. True they are good looking bodies. But seriously would you prefer a ad that has good looking guys, or an ad that has fat over weight slobs. These guys are models and probably gay but A&F isn't all that gay. But I like the gap models alot better. They seem really gay.

Posted at August 25, 2007 10:08 PM

J-curve:

Actually the more I look at it the more I want to go shopping...I need some new clothes. I might get a shirt from there too since I know my chest will never look as good as those guys. I just don't have that skeletal structure. Maybe that is a genius way of advertising and it makes you want to buy a shirt because your now self-conscious. Its not a matter of gay.

Posted at August 25, 2007 10:22 PM

Colleen:

for one, if you think there so gay you obviously must be too because your supporting the cause by buying the clothes and two, whats wrong with shirtless guys, its sexy and sex sells if you dont like it dont buy the clothes then.its not rocket science

Posted at August 29, 2007 03:40 AM

kid one:

I think the fact is that most ppl think the models at abecrombie are because not every guy looks like the models. back a few years when gay men realy started to come out they were all very well dressed style conscious and fit looking. now that that image has been engraved in the minds of all men that are straight they think that the ripped male is gay.
gay men are image conscious more then the everage man. also not a very large percent of the male population is as built as the models. so the average straight man looks at these models and says, well since im straight, and i dont look like that, they must be gay because the are better looking then the average man.
and as far as the marketing pitch its obvious. like afore mentioned near the top of this blog the mood/theme of A&F is casual luxury/athletic.
how many atheltes (good atheletes) do you see out of shape and unfit? not very many. the demographic that A&F is trying to reach are young adults that are style conscious, athletic, have a cool laid back style/personality. A&F is all about ivy league traditions, they cater clothes to the ppl who are used to finer clothes. the reason the high price is because it takes alot to go into the making of the clothes. and i know for a fact they are ALOT better then alot of brands out there. im not saying this simply because i buy stuff from there, but there is a very obvious differance in the way the clothes fit and feel, and of what they are made of.
so in conclusion men that think A&F is gay are wrong. sure they get gay customers, but doesnt everywhere? and the average male is not as stacked as the models they choose, and also in the mind of an average male any guy who is differant is labeled gay. i know this because i dress with a differant style then most of my freinds. i where clothers that "fit" and have trendy/preppy styles. they where shirts that come down to their elbows, baggy jeans with sneakers. so since i dress diferantly they are always saying "dude, your gay" which i am in fact not gay because i have a wonderful girlfreind. however that is irrelevent.

To Brian... how gave you the right to judge people the way you do? I think you're sick. To be honest with you, I think everyone is getting crazy over a stupid concept and that we should move on...If people want to buy at Abercombie and Fitch let them... yes they play their music kind of loud sometimes in the mall, but that doesn't make it a bad store. You could make any of these rude comments to any store in the world. Everyone will always hold their own opinions, so why does everyone have to argue over them? Fuck all of you.

To be honest though, I do feel like if someone were overweight or unattractive then they wouldn't be treated the same in the store. Abercrombie does put forth a very superficial image.

Of course, this is America. If you don't like it, you don't necessarily have to shop there.

As far as it being gay......brands such as Calvin Klein, Armani, and other brands that include shirtless models and celebrities in their ad campaign are not targeted at gay men. Why aren't we asking if those are gay?
Because they're not : )

Abercrombie is the coolest store on the planet. yoo all need to shut the fuck-up. the clothes are sexy. You can't blame a guy for walking in the store and trying to look good and most of them do. The cloyhes are hot the people are hot. the store is hot the moose is hot. so shut-up

The store is not gay. Well I mean for guys it is. But for girls it's just a normal shopping date with ur friends. I have plenty of straight friends who shop there. Oh and the techno-music is hott!!!!! Don't be all freakin stupid. think,duh! Abercrombie & Fitch is the coolest store on the planet and if you don't like it just say you don't like it. I hate Old Navy, but you don't hear me complaining. I mean it's full broke wanna be preps. Talk about an ugly store. It's cheap looking and reminds me of Wal*Mart or my local thrift shop

M. Garbarz:

lol...omg Abercrombie and Fitch isn't that gay...it's a fucking expensive clothing store which most people can't afford to buy shit at...those who lack self-confidence or can't afford the clothes therefore make fun of the fitch. Well i got news for you, it's a statement if you have A & F or Ruehl clothes, it shows that you're rich and can afford nice clothes. Suck it up and stop calling everything gay, because chances are, you probably are or you can't afford the clothes. Not to mention i buy clothes at the Fitch all the time and Hollister and Ruehl..and i'm not gay...but yeah this post has gone on long enough

Bubbi:

I just wanted to say that Abercrombie is more of a preppy brand than a "gay" brand...Also, at my school at least, rumors go around that you're gay if you're NOT wear Abercrombie. Another thing, the whole gay/straight thing really just needs to be dropped...I do think that more than half of Abercrombie's models are gay but that doesn't mean I think anyone wearing Abercrombie is gay. And the reason I don't lilke the store is because everyone I know who wears it is either a jerk or a complete bitch. No offense intended to any Abercrombie-wearing people reading this. That said I think this blog is really funny to read but kind of idiotic. Again no offense intended.

Posted at October 25, 2007 11:55 PM

me:

bubi you are so right. the people that wear abercombi arn't gay. they mit be but in our school they arn't.well some people are but not a lot only like 2 or 4. but i have know idea. well anyways i totaly agree with bubbi. or school isn't like that at least i don't think it is. well bye!!!

Posted at October 26, 2007 12:57 AM

Posted at October 26, 2007 01:03 AM

me:

hey its me again i just want to say that i looked up if guys that wear abercombi are gay and it sayed that 55% of the wold is gay if you wear clothes from abercombi. but i don't know if that is true or not but i think it is. what about you? so has anyone else done reserch on this topic? if you have post a commment plz i would like to know if anyone else has done that. plz some one talk to me i feel lonly and i don't like to feel lonly. sop anyway back to the topic. i don't think there are alot of people in our school that is gay and wears abercombi but it is posible. i have now idea how many people there are in my school that are gay but i do know of one guy that wears abewrcombi that is gay. he is realy weird. he will talk and walk like a girl. some times i think it is prity funny even when i am with my friends. so anyone that wants to talk i am free to talk and i would love to talk to you. plz talk to me plz. good bye talk to you later.

Deebo:

hmmm well first off, the guy ads aren't targeting guys....they are intended to draw WOMEN into the store, who they hope will buy stuff for their boyfriend, sig. other, or even better, just spend their boyfriends money. And you'd better keep praying the guys are gay, because we're just gonna keep stealing your girlfriends until you decide to get off your ass and hit the gym. You seriously have to be gay to think that those half nude guys are designed to target you.....what a 'omo. peace

hey yall it me!

AND LIKE FALL SEASON AND THEY WEAR LIKE LIGHT COLORS ITS FALL SOME ON NEED TO TEACH THEN THE TRENDS!

WELL LATERS YALL!

P.S (I HATE a&F)

Posted at October 30, 2007 12:31 AM

dude:

I don't believe A&F is gay or straight. I think they are in the fashion business! What is wrong with a guy having his shirt off! I am not gay, but I definitely know how to appreciate a good looking body, whether it is male or female! I think the magazine is just trying to present a young, youthful, active lifestyle...which includes athletic looking guys. For people who say straight guys don't look at other guys...just pay a visit to the beach, or the gym, or any athletic field across the country. Anytime you get a group of guys together and one of them is shirtless or takes off his shirt..it won't be long before the rest of them are shirtless too...why?..because we competitively check each other out and we want to be the best looking one!
I think it is sad in this country that a guy can't express that another guy has a great body without it being called gay. Just because I look at my best friend without his shirt on and appreciate how great his body is, doesn't mean I want to have sex with him. It simply means I think he looks great! What is wrong with that? People do it everyday. Doesn't mean we are all gay.

um yea fashion girl, you're being pretty bitchy... i looked at what i first said and i was bad too. :( srry but i just dont think you should peg abercrombie as gay. btw you're spelling dolce & gabbana wrong how i spelled it above is correct. i just don't know why you would say you hate abercrombie, they're clothes aren't ugly. well anyway, try to spell things right if you claim to have them. srry about my first rude response earlier.

personally i think that if you think Ambercrombie is Gay, great and if you dont think it is gay, thats also great. everybody has there own opinon and they want to share it but still people i mean COME ON! who gives 2 shits if it is gay or not...Not me! and half the people i know dont either. so the point i am trying to put out there is WHO CARES!!! k?? take my advice and get a life, dont spend your "precious" time replying to what people think about Abercrombie.

Posted at November 6, 2007 02:21 AM

hott stuff:

ok,why the fuck am i writing to this or reading it, i feel like a loser but watever, wow "fashion girl" u piss me off, abercrombie is farthest thing from ghetto, its preppy, and its not a designer but its pretty dam close. and if the only designers u know are dolce and cabbana and prada than ur pathedic. i bet u dont even own 1 single thing from them. not to brag but i would know a lot more than u, my great grandpa owned juicy couture, and my whole family works and designes juicy. i not only model for juicy, i actualy designed the juicy dress that pari hilton wore to he premier of one of her clubs. so fuck u u little bitch, and dont diss abercrombie's models, there hott! even hotter without shirts!!

For one, ur like a walking billboard, 2 its completly UNoriginal (I see the same shirt like 8 times a day)3 ur most likely stuck up egotistical and bitchy if u wear it, and 4 the music they play in their stores SUCK massivly....reason enough.

Nathan:

Oh wow.

My god - im absolutely stunned. No wonder the world is as screwed up as it is...

We have Yanks spewing vitriole about someone's freedom of speech... spooky!

As a gay man - I think A&F are specifically targetting a particular market. I mean, if any of you had stopped to think - who does the clothes shopping? Mum, wife, girlfriend, sister, yourself... Id say they get alot of business from heterosexual women who are attracted by the images and would like "their man" too look like that too. (Problem is, they usually only buy the clothes but not the gym membership - & it takes more than nice clothes!!)

And why are we so pre-occupied with the outside - what about the inside??

All i can think is that the males who are soo offended by these comments are extremely insecure about themselves... Who cares if someone thinks youre gay or not... You know and thats the important thing.

As well as the females - im sure theyre targeting homosexual males... and its been known through the ages that gay men are quite fashionable & trend setters. Its understandable that hetero males want to look their best and would shop there, but by doing so youre promoting more of the same advertising.

We should all ask ourselves - would we still be interested if the clothes were not being modeled by hot guys... if it was a pair of jeans on a brown back ground - would it be so desirable.

Ive had my say - who cares if somethings gay or not. Sex sells... just wonder who's buying!!

Its obvious you all feel really strongly about this - if only you all put this much energy into making the world a better place & consideration for your fellow man this would be a great world to live in..

Oh - and thanks for the half hour of hysterical laughter I had at reading all the idiotic rants above... Get a life - all of you!

Posted at December 27, 2007 10:52 PM

Jay:

Abercrombie & Fitch has over-priced, trendy clothes that could be bought elsewhere for a lot less money. Why buy clothes already faded & ripped? Practically speaking, one would be better off to buy a crisp, new pair of cargo shorts at K-Mart or Sears (where they will cost a third the amount as at A&F) and let them get that way naturally. Of course, if one is wealthy and money is no option or one likes to foolishly waste one's hard-earned money, that's one's prerogative.

As for the "gayness" of A&F--there's no doubt, ZERO DOUBT, that this store gears its advertising dollars toward appealing to gay males & young teenish & tweenish women. But the models themselevs are most likely largely heterosexual, just paid to pose provocatively--"gay for pay," if you like. Actual gay males are usually obviously homosexual & effeminate-looking, not prone to working out to achieve the perfectly-defined body, which requires an upper body strength with which most are not equipped as effeminate creatures. as most are flabby fairies or skinny sissies. I have seen some gay guy joggers, but that's about it.

That's my honest take on this issue.

Gay enough that I can jerk off to it.

Seriously, A&F makes the best softcore porn in the world.
