Abercrombie & Fitch Clothing & Accessories at Discount Prices
Although the first Abercrombie & Fitch store was founded in 1892 in New York City, NY, the current brand has no relation to that first store. The original concept of the company focused on high-end sporting and excursion items, such as tents, fishing rods and high-end shotguns, a far cry from the modern Abercrombie & Fitch.
The company we know today as Abercombie & Fitch is the company's third inception and its focus is casual luxury clothing. The company's brands include Abercrombie kids, Hollister and Gilly Hicks.
Abercrombie & Fitch has made its expansion around the world very deliberate, expanding in a slow, calculated manner to different high-end markets first. The company has flagship stores in most main cities in Canada, Asia and Europe.
