Abercrombie & Fitch has been accused of intentionally excluding larger women from wearing its clothes, by failing to make or sell womenswear in any size above Large.
In an interview from a few years ago, Abercrombie CEO Mike Jeffries had this to say about the company:
"That's why we hire good-looking people in our stores. Because good-looking people attract other good-looking people, and we want to market to cool, good-looking people. We don't market to anyone other than that.
In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids.
Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don't belong [in our clothes], and they can't belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely."
