Do you remember A&F's first quarterly from the Fall of 1997? The book was chock full with articles and photographs of young, good-looking, and fit male and female models wearing minimally-logoed Abercrombie & Fitch clothing. The book was incredibly controversial and according to Fashion Week Daily:
It was pulled from US stores in December 2003 after numerous boycotts from religious organizations and women's rights groups alleging its sexually explicit nature, promotion of alcohol abuse, and other cultural concerns.
Despite all the talk, the quarterly will be back this Spring, but only for London residents. Since A&F's clothes are geared toward the younger generation, I can see why so many people were up in arms. Of course the general public can turn a blind eye to such marketing techniques, but do you think A&F's message is age-appropriate? Do you think it promotes bad behavior?
