A&F Closing 50 Stores Trying To Stay Alive Stay Alive

February 23, 2013

Abercrombie & Fitch said it would close 40 to 50  stores in the US this year as the youth fashion retailer’s shares tumbled  following weak sales in the crucial Christmas quarter.

Like-for-like sales fell 1 per cent at Abercrombie & Fitch’s US stores in  the three months to February 2, extending previous declines in an intensely  competitive sector where its rivals include American Eagle, Aéropostale and Forever 21.  The Ohio-based retailer, known for its thumping in-store music and scantily clad  male door staff, said direct sales to US consumers, which include its ecommerce  unit, rose 5 per cent, although they remain a small part of its business.

Ask The Eye,Clothes Make The Metrosexual

June 28, 2010

Dear Eye View,
I have been dating this guy for about three months. When we first met, I was struck by his gentleness, kindness and sensitivity.  I can express myself, all my quirky idiosyncrasies included, and not fear judgment or ridicule. He understands me and accepts me as I am. Which is why I’m having such a hard time with this dilemma: I’ve never dated anyone so sensitive before. He has his bad days, as we all do, but his bad days make him cry. His mood spirals down into an abyss of self-hatred and emotional despair.  He says that just seeing me and holding me boosts his mood considerably. I’ve tried to help him figure out how something like a tiff with his boss can make him feel like the world is ending before he turns on the tears. I’ve suggested therapy, but he gets defensive, and I don’t want to shatter the tiny bit of ego he has. The other (bigger) part of me just wants to yell, “For God’s sake, grow some balls!” When we started dating, I had the “wow, he could be the one that completes me thoughts. Now, I can’t imagine spending my life with this man, having kids, etc., because I feel he’s weak and it disgusts me. It’s infuriating because the rest of him is so great. I love him and want to see where this can possibly go, but if I can’t find a way to overcome this, then I may as well end it now.


Dear Distressed

You start your letter rhapsodizing about this wonderful new guy and end it describing your fury and disgust. You love that you’ve found someone so sensitive to you, but can’t stand that he’s so sensitive. Make up your freakin mind. Are you looking for a sensitive dude or not. You have gone from thinking he is a work in progress to a real piece of work..Anyway, you need to get your mind right and give this guy a break. The Eye View wants to remind you that  clothes make the man. Get him a nice outfit, or get a girlfriend you dumbass. You will both feel better. Hope this helps.
