Abercrombie Says It Would Rather Burn Clothes Than Give Them To Poor People

abercrombie-and-fitch-ad

Abercrombie and Fitch is a popular clothing retailer, but is certainly not loved by all. Many people have a negative impression of the clothing industry giant due to the atmosphere of the store, the prices, or even the clothing themselves. What most people don’t know about is the intense superiority complex of Abercrombie and Fitch as a company, not just the consumers that wear the clothes.

Recently in an interview with an Abercrombie and Fitch District Manager, who has requested to remain nameless, revealed an interesting procedure the company follows regarding its damaged clothing.

“Any clothing that has any type of blemish, including things such as a stitch missing or a frayed fabric, gets sent back to the company for immediate disposal.”

He continued to share that a large amount of clothing gets sent back to corporate for issue such as the ones listed. Abercrombie and Fitch has had many requests by non-profit organizations to have the clothing donated to areas of need but the company refuses.

“Abercrombie and Fitch doesn’t want to create the image that just anybody,  poor people, can wear their clothing. Only people of a certain stature are able to purchase and wear the company name.”

Despite the bad economy and all the people in need, Abercrombie and Fitch will not sacrifice any bit of their superior high class image that helps anyone but themselves. This is completely outrageous.  Think of all the clothing they could have donated to Katrina victims or for the Haiti relief. In todays world consumers are looking for companies that are reaching out to others, not withholding for themselves. This type of bad business will hopefully lead to bad results for this clothing giant.

The unnamed manager was asked how Abercrombie and Fitch responds to the requests by non-profit organizations to have their clothing donated to the poor.

The manager had no shame at all when admitting that the company downright refuses to send any clothing to those in need.

“Abercrombie and Fitch doesn’t want to create the image that just anybody, poor people, can wear their clothing. Only people of a certain stature are able to purchase and wear the company name.”

Well.

A company that is actually known for having elegant people flaunt their brand could maybe get away with a comment like this, but we all know that

Abercrombie and Fitch is the preferred retailer for those who only think they have class and elegance, but really they’re a bunch of posers with bad attitudes and fake tans.

It seems like the world is finally figuring out that the glamorous ideals of A&F were really implemented by some of the most hideous personalities known to man. Here at Elite, we understand what truly commands stature, respect and admiration. One of the easiest ways to obtain these sacred qualities is by giving.

It’s people who dedicate their lives to helping those in need who should be endorsed and idolized, not those who don’t value compassion and generosity.

An honorable clothing company would be glad to give as much clothing as possible to the poor. We pray that A&F has changed its policy on the charity issue by now because ,if not, the retailer should be ashamed for not acknowledging the moral duty to serve those in need.

Despite the bad economy and all the people who could use a little help, Abercrombie and Fitch prefers not to sacrifice any bit of their superior, cliquey image in order to help anyone but themselves. This company is completely outrageous.

Think of all the clothing they could have donated to people like the Katrina victims, or for the Haiti relief. In today’s world, consumers are looking for altruistic companies, not those littered with biases and preoccupied with superficiality. This type of bad business will hopefully lead to negative results for this clothing giant.
