    Clothing that is made for obese people just enables them to keep being obese.

    Check out this guy's wiki page. He looks like the guy from Mask.

    Hanging out with your fellow asians must have warped your vision, LA has lots of obese people. You have a hot, smoggy landscape where people take cars everywhere, eat a shitton of fast food and often love in food deserts.

    Yep. Bigger than 3x and I think you should learn to sew. Nobody but professional wrestlers and sumos should get that big, and society certainly shouldn't support them in any way.

    Thank you, Tweak. While the rest of the internet responds to this with disgust, you approach it with logic. Abercrombie has a brand identity that they want to uphold, and power to them if that's how they want to do it.

    But unless you're Chris Christie, morbid obesity is usually associated with a lower income bracket, so those people probably won't be shopping there anyway.

    Props to Christie for getting a band. Pretty obvious he's aiming for 2016 though.

    Well, he has made a career out of telling people what they want to hear. He may as well be something they also want to look at. :p

    I have no problem with this. As others said, they are a brand and they have an image to uphold. It's just business, if you don't like it tough shit, go buy a mumu :p

    I don't know if you guys followed the story, but I just read that a dude bought A&F clothes and gave them to homeless people for some "forced" rebranding. Hilarious!
