    I'm not sharing Abercrombie's outlook on this one. In my eyes, the image of A&F clothing was uber-douchey before Jersey Shore came along and it's image remains in place afterwards. Nothing's changed.

    This is more than just a little disingenuous, especially in light of this article. They are marketing a T-shirt with "The Fituation" across its front.

    This whole things smells like a publicity stunt to me.
    The biggest scam since New Coke IMOHO!

    Agreed.

    Again, I agree. But I enjoy the insult to the Situation and his Jersey Shore castmates nonetheless.

    well to be honest...Ed Hardey clothes as well as Affliction were mega popular and since Jersey Shore and John and Kate +8 ... If you wear them...you might as well hang a big DOUCHE sign around your neck. So there might be some truth to this, instead of/as well as it being just a publicity stunt. Hell the cast of the Jersey Shore were asked to leave Italy...and pretty much tossed out of Miami.

    Well! To think that a punk thug like Sorrentino should be denied would only improve his annoying, moronic attitude.

    Then they're hypocrites and plagarize

    Who cares about the clothes brands or that moron?

    In all the years of godawful reality TV nothing has changed and I doubt it will as long as they can get someone whose IQ is relative to a cup of wet yeast to do what they say.

    Just another tele celeb being paid millions for being the idiotic posterboy for douche bags.

    The Situation and Kevin Federline are in cahoots.

    Somebody ought to tell these kids that they're embarrassing New Jersey for the last almost 2 yrs. That, and probably ruining tourist trade for the South Jersey shores.

    I thought A&F catered to the douchebag demographic?

    A&F did kind of created the "douche". Then Ed Hardy just took it to another level. I mean... who does A&F think wear their clothes?

    I don't support A&F company. Racist bunch of people. I have a friend that used to work with them and he was asking to leave the company because of ethnicity and his body type does not go with the company image. The district manager was the one that pull him aside and tell him that. He sue the company, it did not make it out to the public because of the quick settlement by the company.
    My friend conversation on his last day with the district manager for the company was secretly taped and that is why the company settled before it went public. The district manager still working with the company. Nothing will ever change and I don't know why young people still shop at this company?

    Can I be paid not to wear their clothes, or indeed other brands I have no wish to wear?
