Abercrombie’s CEO Mike Jeffries has caused more controversy by banning black clothes from the store and encouraging employees not to wear the color at work. The ban of the color black from the brand is because of concerns that the hue is too “formal.” Discouraging employees from wearing black at work is because Abercrombie is about a casual lifestyle. “Management will tell people that Mike hates the color, and so we’re not supposed to wear it to work,” an employee, who chose to remain anonymous, said. “It even applies to coats in the winter.” “Abercrombie & Fitch does not sell black clothing and discourages wearing it at our home office and in our stores, because we are a casual lifestyle brand and feel black clothing is formal. We have nothing against black clothing and feel it is perfectly appropriate for things like tuxedos.” I Like it! UPI
