Parents Hot Under The Collar Over Clothing Magazine

Posted July 9, 2001

— A new clothing catalog that has a little more skin than normal has some people hot under the collar.

The new Abercrombie and Fitch catalog features some models that are totally nude. The pictures come as a shock to parents and teens who got a sneak peek at the catalog with their parents' permission.

"The clothes that I saw on people that were actually wearing them, they looked nice, but when they weren't wearing them, I was like, 'What's the deal with that,'" says Lauren Wenick, who says she does not like the new catalog.

Abercrombie and Fitch insists it targets college-age students, not teenagers. The chain says you can only get this catalog at its stores. You must be 18 to buy one, and clerks will check IDs to make sure.
