Are You Thin Enough To Be An Abercrombie & Fitch Customer?

Are You Thin Enough To Be An Abercrombie & Fitch Customer??
Oh yeah, makes me want to apply!

Apparently the old adage you can’t be too thin or too rich is the mantra of high priced clothier Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jefferies in this 2006 Salon article. Apparently the fecal matter hit the rotary impeller this past week when Business Insider article referenced that old interview late last week and this petition requested Abercrombie & Fitch make clothing for all sized teens.

Seems that Mike Jefferies only wants “young, thin, hip” people in his stores (I cannot believe they don’t want old, frumpy moms with cash to pay for the clothes for those young, thin, hip kids, too!). Larger than size 10 females may not enter. This controversy actually helped raise the stocks $4 this past week. In 2012 the stock was hammered by poor sale quarters. Seems ignoring the size 14 and over crowd during a recession isn’t exactly the wisest business decision.

From the 2006 Salon article:

Life is good for Jeffries, who in 14 years has transformed Abercrombie & Fitch from a struggling retailer of “fuddy-duddy clothes” into the most dominant and imitated lifestyle-based brand for young men in America.

Valued at $5 billion, the company now has revenues approaching $2 billion a year rolling in from more than 800 stores and four successful brands. For the kids there’s Abercrombie, aimed at middle schoolers who want to look like their cool older siblings. For high schoolers there’s Hollister, a wildly popular surf-inspired look for “energetic and outgoing guys and girls” that has quickly become the brand of choice for Midwestern teens who wish they lived in Laguna Beach, Calif.

Whether or not he’s a genius or a lunatic is open for debate. These Business Insider articles show a company that doesn’t always persevere with their strategy. In the US they may have a sycophant following, but cracking the overseas market is a bit tougher as they mark up their clothing 65% more than what they charge for the same article in the US market.

So what do you think? Much ado about nothing? Old news? Do you think retailers should be exclusionary to a degree? Even when it comes to excluding 67% (or more) of the female population in the United States? Is it smart business to exclude so many people? Or do they have enough brand/store loyal shoppers that, even if their target market decreases they can still be a viable long into the future? And most importantly… do you or your children shop at Abercrombie & Fitch? If yes, will you continue to do so?
