    You know, this might acctually slide by as a commercial stunt to attract self proclamed "cool" and rich kids who will look for every way to singl out themselves from the majority (needled to say that it is oh so shallow) but what I see as a problem is that these words are coming from person who is poster child for plastric surgery gone wrong and obviously he once was a kid who got bullied in high school and manage to grow up still wanting to be one of those cool kids. Please Mr. CEO take a mirror and admit to yourself that any fat or uncool kid will always always look better than you. NOTE: his plastic surgeon succeeded to make his face reflect his soul.

    I'm 18 years old. Graduated last year from High School. Let me give you an input on the popular kids. They wear Abercrombie, American Eagle, Aeropostle, Forever 21, etc. Brands I could never afford. I wore cheap clothes from the clearance racks. If they're not on clearance, I'm not buying. Now, I'm a size 0. 90 pounds. Disgusting if you ask me. Now, lots look at reality. I, not a cool kid at all, work in a popular, big name Hair Salon, ULTA. I do hair for a living. Had my license for a year now. All the "cool" kids I went to school with are working at fast food places or pregnant, or even already parents. So tell me why COOL kids get expensive clothes when only their parents could afford it? Doesn't seem so cool to me.

    Forever 21 is not expensive clothing. I am naturally slim as well and that's the only place I can find clothing that fits me (Forever 21). Don't be ashamed that you are naturally thin! It is hard because everywhere we turn everyone says 'real women have curves'. But what about the rest of us? We aren't women? All sizes should be appreciated and not looked down on!! It's not anyone's fault they are bigger or smaller. We just have to work with what we have and not let anyone put us down.

    I'm a size 4 and who cares if you are a model. You are clearly uneducated. Judgemental is ONE word.

    Check this out...years ago, me, my mom and a few of our friends (5 of us in all) were shopping and walking around in a local shopping mall. Suddenly, we noticed an Abercrombie & Fitch store that had just opened up in that mall. So, we decided to stop in there and look around. Well...TOTAL MISTAKE ON OUR PART!!!!! We were shocked and disgusted by what we saw...very rude salespeople, a TOTAL BITCH of a manager barking out orders, very disorganized shelves, totally overpriced items, etc.. We saw one lady and her young daughter BOTH storm out of the store in tears. Well, after about 10 minutes, me, my mom and our friends walked out of there and NEVER went back. So, now here we are in the year 2013 and the saddest part about all of this? The certain Abercrombie & Fitch store is STILL in business!!!!! BEYOND SAD!!!!!

    But what about his face? If he doesn't like the not-so-cool people (or fat women particular), then what about the extreme procedures they put sh%% on their faces?

    He should think before saying these comments.

    When I look at Mike Jeffries, I don't see an "all-American guy." Silly Mike, we all know you're not Amerindian. All I see is an aging European with a swollen face. And it's not like anyone wants to see him with his shirt off, so why is he trying to push for that in his stores? A&F has always been nothing more than a mere mediocre, nouveau riche brand for upper middle class teenagers in the suburbs. It began to decline in popularity as far as I can remember as a high school student in 2003-2007. Besides all of that, his claims are just pure laughable. Target whatever audience you please, but don't try to use the label "all-American" in reference to what you really mean to say: white European teenagers.

    Okay.. So what he said was exactly 'nice' or 'right.' But seriously? WHY are any of you against this. We shouldn't be encouraging people to STAY or BE FAT.

    Oops I had a few typos in my last comment! Let me fix them-Ugly Mother-Fucker, I am a size 3. I should try and sue you because it MFs like you that help girls and women develop Eating Disorders. YOU make us feel that we are failures if we are over a size 4. Assholes like you inspire us to become Malnourished, lose our hair and our periods just so we can "Fit In" and not be labeled as "Fat Chics' I hope that you don't sleep well at night and I hope you remember this: God WILL judge you in the end & Let He Who Is Without Sin-Cast The First Stone-Yeah I am guessing the first to Cast Will Not be Mike Jeffries!!!

    Because some people are genetically predisposed to being "fat." His comments are completely unacceptable.
