Family?[edit]

Do editors really call this article "biographical" if it does not even mention Abercrombie's family except for that he has died among them? ("Abercrombie lived the remainder of his life in the Adirondacks with his family until his death.") 95.28.221.204 (talk) 22:03, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

I'm removing the following.[edit]

I am removing the following-More important, the company is frequently referenced as simply Abercrombie. First, who thinks its more important? Why is it more important? There is no source for this and it reads like PR fluff. Actually since Abercrombie and Fitch were sold to the Limited a long time ago, I don't see how David Abercrombie influences the store anymore, compare the old Abercrombie and Fitch to the new store, and his influence is non existent. Also the whole Legacy section reads like it was written by the CEO or someone within the company. This statement is laughable and has no sources and reads like a opinion- Abercrombie & Fitch continues to reference to its original image of its early years with the Abercrombie moose and "sexy" male ruggedness. I'm pretty sure that David Abercrombie did not promote sexy male ruggedness back in 1892 or 1904. The legacy section needs to be rewritten.--BeckiGreen (talk) 21:18, 9 May 2013 (UTC)
