Mike "the Situation" Sorrentino may have to find some new attire for his "gym, tan, laundry" routine.

On Tuesday, clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) said it would offer "substantial payment" to MTV's The Jersey Shore's cast members to stop wearing the brand on air.


"We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino's association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans," an Abercrombie & Fitch spokesperson said in a statement. "We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response."

The reality show, currently in its fourth season, features hard-partying and hookups in locations ranging from the show's origin, the Jersey Shore to the current season in Florence, Italy.

The castmates have coined terms like "grenade"-- to refer to an unattractive woman -- and has come under fire for their liberal usage of words like "Guido" and "Guidette," which many have argued as adhering to Italian-American stereotypes.

Abercrombie & Fitch is also no stranger to controversy. The all-American retailer has come under fire in the past for a range of topics ranging from negative stereotyping to sexually explicit material and employment practices.

They prefer more of an upscale suburban douche look, and not the NJ douche look.

Are you fucking serious? I thought their mission was to get teenage girls to dress like whores? Seems like Jersey Shore is the perfect outlet for that message.

Interesting concept. Get known for being a dipshit. Always wear one brand. Make money NOT being affiliated with said brand.

Huh.

Good for A&F.

Their clothes are expensive as hell but they are quality goods. I've still got some heavily used clothes that haven't seen a bit of wear&tear.

A&F's biggest problem in my book is that they advertise the name on their clothes way too much, and I tend to buy clothes with NO logo or brand name pasted all over it.

Personally I can't get past the fucking stench that emanates from their stores. You can smell that noxious perfume crap 100 feet from the store entrance - I can't imagine how bad it must be inside.

Nah, I typically only shop at 3 places for clothes and A&F is not one of them. I've never purchased anything from A&F.

I don't have one of those happy trails. I'm a light brown/blondish dude so I'm fairly hairless.
Just thought you should know.
Well...
My nipple area. I have hair there.
Also on my back. I have random patches of hair there too.

Nice way for A&F to get some free publicity while pretending to be concerned. I doubt it will fool anyone, though.

I wish Abercrombie would pay me to keep not wearing their clothes.


They should also probably pay me to stop farting in front of their stores and groups of people wearing their clothes at the mall.

I've owned one article of A&F purchased like in 1986 when they were like a LL Bean ripoff. It was a loose fit cable knit v-neck sweater and it served me well for a long time through some pretty rough times. It was pretty rugged but I think their brand was different then.

In sixth grade, one of my classmates at our Catholic school brought in an A&F catalog. Pretty big scandal erupted out of that.

I only get clothing from:

2) getting it as gifts

I do have a Bronco ball cap collection, some of which I purchased. That's it.
