Abercrombie & Fitch is a US-based clothing retailer that caters to consumers aged 18-22. With more than 300 locations throughout the U.S., Abercrombie & Fitch has evolved substantially from its original inception as a retailer of sporting goods. Founded in 1892 in New York City by David Abercrombie and Ezra Fitch, the company focused on shotguns, tents and fishing equipment. After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1976, the revived A&F more closely resembled the store it is today. Abercrombie & Fitch describes itself as "Casual Luxury", and includes three other brands, Hollister Co., Abercrombie Children's Wear and Gilly Hicks.
