Abercrombie & Fitch rethinks its Australian stores.

Abercrombie & Fitch is one of those companies I would gleefully enjoy seeing go bankrupt, almost 100% due to its asshole CEO. So it’s somewhat gratifying to note its adventures into the Australian market are floundering (see also: Starbucks, contrast: Borders).

See also this rebuttal to some points in the article (specifically the availability of clothing choice for plus-sized women and girls, or rather lack thereof).

According to their survey, men hate when women wear beanies, floppy hats, hair bows, open-side shirts, oversize sweaters, shoulder pads, peplums, bandeau bikinis (“they just make your shoulders look like a linebacker”), bright lipstick, heavy eye makeup, fake nails, bangles, pointy-toed shoes, wedge sneakers, ultra-high heels, fold-over ankle boots (“it looks like the shoes have foreskins”), high-waisted jeans, high-waisted shorts, high-waisted skirts (“it lacks a certain degree of subtlety”), pantsuits (“you’re a woman, not a man”), drop-crotch pants (“really, any loose fitting pants,) and mullet dresses (“I just don’t get it — where’s the fucking party??? You are covering the back!”). The question is how to wear all of these things at once.

I knew I hated this word for a reason…

But the etymology of the word ‘panties’ reveals it’s always contained an element of slight. When it entered the lexicon in the mid nineteenth century, it was as a derogatory diminutive of the term for men’s trousers: pantaloons. See what they did there? Took an insulting term for men’s trousers, and applied it to women and children, particularly girls, in an everyday kind of way.

–So apparently I share my revulsion towards this word with a lot of women.
