Abercrombie & Fitch bans buying “too many” clothes

a 33-year-old californian woman, who wears abercrombie & fitch almost exclusively, received an email from the company's head office informing her that it would no longer be accepting any future orders from her.

abercrombie & fitch, which has since lifted the ban on mrs navarra's account, argued that its actions were part of a system in place to protect the brand against customers that buy and re-sell product on websites or ship large quantities to other countries.

but the system is sometimes triggered based on order history and mrs navarra’s history shows that the woman was not buying multiples of the same item, so most probably she was victim of a major system error here!

if i were her i would ask for a compensation, say a year’s wardrobe?

      I wouldn't be surprised if she was indeed re-selling to other countries like – hmmm I don't know… KUWAIT??? Do you think all these small businesses selling A&F from their homes or at P2BK actually got their goods from the source?

      I heard A&F is coming to Kuwait (at the Avenues of course)…. a few years too late in my opinion. As soon as it opens here it will fall out of fashion with the A&F-wearing crowd, since the whole point was/is to be seen wearing something supposedly purchased overseas while traveling.

      Why would this lady buy clothes for the high price in store not retail to sell them? This store should be proud that she wears their clothes. This is nuts

      The real question here is why is a 33 year old women exclusively wearing clothing that is marketed for teens?

      or she's too thin to find clothings in other women sections? :) I know I have this problem, and it's not wearing teen clothing that I want but I can't find anything I can wear in ladies' wear, they're too big for me
