    Good for her.
    Jeffries arrogant statement is deplorable, and inappropriate for the CEO of any company.
    Their clothes suck anyways.

    The irony is that this dirtbag Abercrombie & Fitch CEO is just downright ugly himself. I mean really beat with an ugly stick. Google him; he could not possibly ever have been one of the "cool" kids. He looks like a complete doofus who would never qualify to be in his own stupid "demographic."

    Some companies specialize in Plus size clothes and some don't. Not everyone has to make them. Just more reason to stay in shape fit & Trim. :) Re: "Beauty isn't between a size 0 and a size 8," said Ellen, "It's not a number at all. It's not physical." - ............>> Is that why Ellen Married a Model?

    The issue is not that Abercrombie & Fitch markets to only a very narrow segment of the population, it is because the CEO has stated that he does not even want fat people in his stores - that I find disgusting.

    All of these retailers who target the coveted the 14 to 28 year olds -- cut, style, size, and market their clothing to a slender clientele. The GAP, JCrew, Club Monaco, H&M, et al carry smaller sizes -- even their XL's are made for someone who wears a size 10. Ellen needs to find a better cause. Oh, the CEO is a total moron for articulating his dumb ass strategy, and will probably see a backlash from the generation who cares about this -- and huge drop in sales. Oh, well...

    The stock is up. So it is a good strategy and the CEO is not a moron. I don't like the guy but he is making $$$$ fr the company and that's his job. It's not like working at BK Anita. (you can google the word"stock" if you need help)

    Let's be politically correct, let's help fat kids who can't stop eating, stay that way because we don't want to give them a poor image of themselves, then, years later, as they keep gaining weight, BECAUSE IT'S OK, AS LONG AS YOUR HAPPY, or jolly, WITH YOURSELF, they have heart problems, Diabetes, etc. Now they aren't just overweight, they're morbidly obese, and it's much harder now to lose weight, than if they nipped it in the bud, years before.

    Give them a friggin break. They are not the only clothing manufacturer that targets a specific market. And are there any clothing lines that market a product to make you feel anything but cool.
