This is the first time

This is the first time I've ever been tempted to buy anything from Abercrombie and Fitch, simply as a monument to stupidity. I suppose that it's brave to introduce "edgy" products without any focus groups or market research. On the other hand, it's scary how the A&F folks in good old Ohio couldn't see how this stuff might be a little bit offensive. I guess my PC sensor has been sharpened over the years in the Bay Area. They'd got into trouble before for showing too much skin in their catalogs, but most people don't mind seeing semi-naked hotties. These T-shirts just suck. I can't wait for their Dirty Niggers line, though. Posted by mikewang on 12:34 AM
