Catalog of sins

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Dec 10, 2003

Abercrombie & Fitch is going to discontinue it's pornographic magazine disguised as a catalog. I wouldn't leap for joy thinking that this is a victory for decency and morality. It's more likely that it's no longer selling as well, that it has become too tame, it no longer shocks and titillates, and the kids aren't buying it anymore.

When I was a kid the only catalog I wanted to see this time of year was the Sears Big Book with the huge toy section. My, how times have changed.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Well unfortunately they pull it from production because the new layout was too extreme for anyone to accept. So they really did not drop it due to poor sales, thou that would have been nice if that message had been sent. Instead it was too graphic and did not feature any clothing in the issue they canceled. It's a shame that we have such garbage for our kids to hold as something to look forward to.
