Abercrombie Moose Soon to Be Extinct
Abercrombie and Fitch, the 20th century sporting goods store turned controversial mallwear label, has seen sales decline significantly over the last few years, and the most recent dip is prompting a change: Abercrombie is dropping its moose logo from most of its clothing.
If you’re hoping a return to Abercrombie’s tweed-and-shotgun roots, you’ll be disappointed (and frankly you’re probably well outside of Abercrombie’s target demo). The chain attributes its loss of business to the rise of fast fashion retailers like H+M, and intends to steer its designs away from its dominant copy-of-a-copy-of-prep theme toward more of-the-moment designs. Safe to say the prep pastiche moment is over.
Teenagers’ taste can be more nuanced and sensitive than they often get credit for. This represents something of a sea change in tween/teen clothing tastes that’s been coming for awhile, as kids’ consume more, often cheaper and borderline disposable clothing and are arguably more familiar with trickle-down trends from runways and celebrities than ever. No longer is an embroidered pony or moose a signifier of cool.

I’m here to confirm that there is definitely a hierarchy in teen fashion. Aeropostale is definitely the lowest of the low. Hollister and Abercrombie are rated higher but definitely have an air of douchiness associated with them. American eagle is more neutral.

New employee day tomorrow. Much nervous. Very excite. So mystery.

Ha gli occhi belli di chi vince, di chi supera ogni ostacolo, di chi sa darti una mano se cadi e tirarti su, di chi è speciale e non lo sa.

Two feelings

The nervous anticipation of seeing a friend you haven’t seen in 15 years.

The joy of realizing it’s just as good as you remember.

After I decked out my classroom my first year in cheap lamps and string lights, one of my English co-workers did the same last year. This year I arrived to find that two more in the English department are joining the anti-overhead-lights brigade. In short: my classroom vision is da bomb.

Proper lighting (and high quality bulbs) has a non negligible effect on classroom performance. I remember my 11th grade English teacher covered our overhead lights with tissue paper to reduce their harshness.
