• So they might keep their good name and maintain their positive image, Abercrombie and Fitch has asked Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of Jersey Shore to refrain from wearing their clothes. They are willing to offer him and the rest of the cast monetary compensation for not wearing the brand on air. “We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans…We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response.” In an ideal world, Abercrombie bans everyone from wearing their clothes, and the people are finally set free from the bonds of uninspired floral tanks and overpriced plaid button downs.
