Abercrombie & Fitch - The Men Behind A&F
In the late 1800s, David Abercrombie and Ezra Fitch opened Abercrombie & Fitch, an outdoor gear and clothing store for wealthy businessmen. Although the store was popular and successful, it eventually went bankrupt, and in 1988, The Limited Inc. bought Abercrombie & Fitch and changed it into a fashionable clothing store for teens and college kids. They also operate abercrombie (for kids aged 7-14), Hollister Co. and RUEHL, which targets the twenty-something crowd.
Abercrombie & Fitch - The Collection
Abercrombie & Fitch is known for its preppy image and features guy's and girl's clothing such as woven shirts, polo tops, graphic t-shirts, wool sweaters, cargos and jeans. They also sell hats, belts, flip flops, jewelry and fragrances!
Abercrombie & Fitch - The Shoppers
Back in the day, every president from Theodore Roosevelt to Gerald Ford shopped at Abercrombie & Fitch! Other famous peeps to pass through its doors included Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart and author Ernest Hemingway. Nowadays, any celeb who digs the casual, preppy look shops at Abercrombie & Fitch, like Katie Holmes, Adam Brody (his O.C. character, Seth Cohen, wears a ton of A&F polos and tees) and Lindsay Lohan, who even modeled for abercrombie kids when she was younger.
