This Mall Has Been Rated PG-13

You know those almost pornographic shopping bags that you see being carried around malls? Abercrombie and Fitch. I have never been nor ever will go in that store. "Uh, no, the music is too loud in there." (Bonus points if anyone can tell me where that came from.) I was with D at the mall the other day to see Santa and RIGHT BY Santa's castle is the A&F with an almost naked boy standing in the doorway. Open shirt, pants unbuttoned hanging below his tighty whities. Right by Santa. I couldn't come up with a way to get a picture without them seeing me because I wasn't taking the picture for the same reason all of the teenagers were. I was back there today when there were now TWO almost naked boys in the doorway and figured out I could get an ok shot of them from upstairs. Notice the top of Santa's castle in the bottom of the pictures. You can see the guy on the left better in the first picture and the guy on the right better in the second one.

Does anyone else see this as inappropriate and are there other malls across America doing this same horrible thing? Please let me know.


  1. I totally agree! Whatever happened to modesty and decency??? Those half-naked guys make me uncomfortable. Go put your clothes on for crying out loud!

  2. I haven't been in a mall for a long, long time it seems, but I do remember A&F ad/magazine that they sent out when they were new. It definitely bordered n porn. It closely resembled what I would imagine a fraternity/sorority yearbook might look like.

  3. I agree with your assessment. That's just...gross.
