Abercrombie & Fitch (A&F) is an upscale American retailer that focuses on upscale casual wear for young consumers, and is headquartered in New Albany, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus.[2] It has over 400 locations in the United States, and is expanding internationally.[3] The company operates two offshoot brands: Abercrombie Kids and Hollister Co., in addition to two brands, Ruehl No.925 and Gilly Hicks, that closed in early 2010 and 2014, respectively.[2]

Abercrombie & Fitch is notable for using "brand representatives" (previously called "models") for store customer service.[4] Its main competitors are Aéropostale and American Eagle Outfitters. Its younger subsidiary, Abercrombie Kids, competes with Aéropostale's P.S., and American Eagle Outfitters's 77kids. Abercrombie & Fitch has been the subject of controversies including allegations of discrimination, preadult sexualized ad campaigns, and promoting an elitist attitude on the basis of looks or social status.
