Abercrombie & Fitch bans black clothing for being too formal

Abercrombie & Fitch bans black clothing for being too formal Abercrombie & Fitch bans black clothing for being too formal

Abercrombie & Fitch, the clothing brand which said earlier this year that it was only for the ‘thin and cool’ has announced another change: it has banned the colour black from clothing.

The brand suggested that the colour is ‘formal’, and employees at the company headquarters are ‘not supposed’ to wear any black clothes to work, a ruling which ‘even applies to coats in the winter’, according to Business Insider.

A spokesperson for the brand has said: "Abercrombie & Fitch does not sell black clothing and discourages wearing it at our home office and in our stores, because we are a casual lifestyle brand and feel black clothing is formal. We have nothing against black clothing and feel it is perfectly appropriate for things like tuxedos."

this isn't a CHANGE........Abercrombie & Fitch has NEVER produced any article of clothing thats black. No shirts, jackets, tees, or pants. Nothing. No black clothing. It isnt racially driven either......I used to work there. They aren't as bad as their reputation that unfairly portrays them. They have a cetain image and group they aspire to capture and appeal to, just like EVERY other brand......

A Abercrombie & Fitch é um grande sucesso. Com 117 anos de existência, a marca voltou a atrair os holofotes e após uma revolução em suas linhas, com lançamento de roupas em estilo despojado, tornou-se febre nos grandes centros da moda. No Brasil, por exemplo, a marca é uma das mais procuradas principalmente pelo público jovem, que se encanta com o novo estilo da marca norte americana.
