Faith Clash at Abercrombie

This article explains a lawsuit that has been ongoing since 2008 about a Muslim [then] 17 year old girl who was denied a job at Abercrombie because the hijab she wears for religious reasons is not part of their dress code. Having worked at Abercrombie & Fitch when I was in high school I know from personal experience that their look policy is EXTREMELY strict. Everything from no nail polish, not more than one ear piercing, no eyeliner or heavy mascara, so on is strictly enforced. This article should be shocking but coming from a company like Ambercrombie & Fitch where appearance is everything, it really doesn’t suprise me all that much. Abercrombie has had several upon several instances like this in the past. They really need to start looking at their business ethnic and really determine what is more important to them.

  1. I wonder how this will affect Abercrombie? Do they gain something from this strict dress code? What kinds of effects might this going to the Supreme Court have?
