birthplace[edit]

where was he born? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.8.83.110 (talk) 00:23, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Plagiarism[edit]

I read the salon.com interview, and much of this article appears to be copied and pasted from it (choice words removed/altered to avoid immediate removal). So basically this needs a major renovation. And I don't really care about Abercrombie enough to do all that research. So it's a project for someone who has the time and the interest. But it is of relative pertinence, because plagiarism is plagiarism. Bflorsheim (talk) 06:09, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Although it's not a subject about which I've got any interest whatsoever, I've rewritten the page, removing some of the more lurid personal details, and just generally trying to put it into English and de-plagiarise it (if that's possible). It probably still needs someone who gives a damn to provide more references than just that single interview though HieronymousCrowley (talk) 16:10, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Personal life[edit]

When and if someone expands this to a proper Personal Life section, sources note the names of Mr. Jeffreis' "companion" is Matthew Smith (as of Oct 2012)[1] and he owns three dogs (Ruby, Trouble and Sammy).[2] (talk) 06:48, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Is he a homo? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.165.133.22 (talk) 03:48, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Political Party - source?[edit]

His political party is currently listed as "Republican," with no citation provided. The only related info I found online were two contributions he allegedly made in 2009 and 2010, $2400 each, to "Fisher for Ohio," supporting a Democratic party Senate candidate in Ohio. This was listed on a site called "Corporation Wiki"; I tried to provide a link, but Wikipedia autocensored the URL for spam or something when I tried submitting this Talk entry.

It seems like Jeffries' party affiliation should be removed until/unless a reliable citation can be provided. 71.238.69.41 (talk) 22:52, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done If someone cares enough to find a reliable source (for either/any party), they are welcome to add it back in. I'm off to bed. Ignatzmicetalk 04:12, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

Where did the picture go? I removed the reqphoto tag a while ago because I'm pretty sure there was a picture. Why was it removed? I've added the reqphoto tag again because we definitely need a picture of this very prominent businessman who has helped shape American culture.Zigzig20s (talk) 03:24, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Often users upload pix that are not copyright compliant. When this is discovered by reviewers they are deleted. Its likely that's what happened here. I just searched WikiMedia Commons and at present there are no photos of anyone named Mike Jeffries available. -- KeithbobTalk 11:18, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

This is a little ridiculous[edit]

I came here to find out what exactly is wrong with Mike Jeffries' face and there is no mention of it anywhere. There must be something out there to explain what's wrong with his face.....he wasn't born this way. 173.52.158.74 (talk) 00:38, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

At 9 he suffered full-thickness burns to his face and torso after pulling the power cord of a grease fryer, causing boiling oil to fall onto his head. The burns formed eschar requiring surgical debridement and skin grafts from gluteal area followed by overzealous facelift(s)/eyelift(s) 108.8.7.40 (talk) 01:08, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
