    Already knew this, but loving your post – I’ve never worn A&F either, but I remember wishing I could a)afford it or B)fit into it – and I was a size 6 or smaller until late college! As a woman and a mother, I find the whole thing sickening. I agree – let’s make social media work for good!

    He is a despicable person! It’s his companies decision if they don’t want to carry the sizes but I think it is absolutely horrible that he would come out and attack people for being who they are saying that they can’t be a part of the “In crowd” or that they aren’t as “Hot” as the people who wear his clothes. It’s disgusting!

    I’ve been steamed about this issue too! I never wore A&F because I thought the clothes weren’t of the best quality for their price, and I also found the store pretentious. I’ve supported this cause and shared it on Twitter and FB acounts (both personal and my blog page!)

    BTW, this guy needs to realize that this kind of message angers moms, who are the ones who buy the clothes! I have a “popular” son, the athlete that A&F reportedly caters too. (Don’t know how he got to be that way. Definitely not my DNA.) Guess what? I buy his clothes, and he’s just now getting into adult sizes. I’m not buying him A&F. Not wasting my money on a brand that promotes hate.

    I am so with you on this one. To quote an old song, “Everyone is beautiful in the own way.”

    LOVE the last line of the post. And I’m headed over right now to show my support. What a jerk. (I’ve NEVER bought a thing from A&F anyway because of their soft-core porn they call catalogs.
