Not Made in USA: Abercrombie and Fitch: worst offender of them all

November 6, 2012

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. After reviewing a few companies whose clothing are all foreign made, I decided on the worst offender of them all to send a complaint email to. An executive at Abercrombie and Fitch will receive the following in their inbox tomorrow.

Dear Abercrombie and Fitch executive,

Over the past 10 years, I have read countless reports of your company’s extremely unethical business practices. The charge that your company forced migrant workers to make clothes in a foreign country under slave like conditions is horrendous and anti humanitarian. (http://www.treehugger.com/style/are-these-unethical-fashion-brands-hiding-in-your-closet.html) I do believe in second chances and giving one a chance to defend themselves. However, given the vast amount of public documents substantiating all of your company’s anti humane practices, I believe any defense counter argument does not have legs to stand on. You are however welcome to make one and I will of course listen with an open mind. However, one of the best ways in which your company can wash away the stain of your company’s poor PR and which will guarantee quality and earn many happy consumers is to stop making foreign made clothes and instead switch to making all of your clothes in the USA. This step would go a longer way to creating a good name for your company than another cheaply made semi pornographic ad showing underage and uncomfortable looking models. I hope you consider this positive step for your company.

Sincerely,

Made in USA Fan
