Abercrombie & Fitch Features Famous Men, Famous Dogs In New Ad Campaign

jacob-artistIt is a known fact that any photo of a beautiful man can be greatly enhanced by the addition of a puppy, so it’s only natural that Abercrombie & Fitch has gone to the dogs for their 2013 “back to school” ad campaign.

The world’s largest retailer for anorexic folks has employed celebrity photographer Bruce Weber to shoot 11 different “stars on the rise,” including Glee‘s Jacob Artist, Texas Chainsaw 3D‘s Scott Eastwood, Taylor Handley, Alexander Ludwig, Lily Rabe, Julio the Skateboarding English Bulldog, and Carrie The Dancing Merengue Dog, among others.

In case you can’t tell, they’re supposedly promoting the new A&F Jeans Collection, which from the looks of it are still covered in bleach spots, rips, and gaping holes.

Mike Jeffries, company Chairman & CEO, is extremely excited about paying these thin celebrities to wear his clothes, because he discovered them first and you can’t say anything to the contrary or else you’re fired:

“Identifying talent during the early stages of their careers has been something we have always been excited to be a part of. We enjoyed working with these 11 actors selected for this campaign and look forward to watching them flourish in their careers.”

So here they are! Who wore these distressed A&F jeans best?

Alexander Ludwig:

Taylor Handley, who has a hard time looking cute in anything since trying to murder Ryan and Marissa on The OC. But this works:

    “what do you think of this post?”

    why are we only given the option “outrageous”? can’t we have a “WTF” option? a “/facepalm” option?

    who the hell are these “famous” men? I haven’t heard of a single one of them.

  • ncman

    @MikeE: LOLOLOL I think they are all former A&F models who now are claiming to be actors.

  • tardis

    I only know who tow of them are. That Ludwig guy who I saw in The Hunger Games. He looks thinner here and Scott Eastwood who is Clint Eastwood’s son.

    Anyways. Abercrombie sucks. I hope people get over this asafp.

  • BritAus

    James Frecheville’s the Aussie actor who was in Animal Kingdom.
    Jacob Artist is in Glee and yes Alex Ludwig was in The Hunger Games.

    Seriously Queerty, who is sucking your collective dicks to have you promote Abercrombie & Fitch shit. Maybe you are hoping that your target market will forget about CEO Mike Jeffries comments recently. Maybe you think that your Twenty Something Audience is trivial and frivolous. You are wrong on both accounts.

    Young men and puppies don’t make a companies image issues disappear…only articles like this one. Anti-discrimination Queerty is presently not!

  • Scott

    I think that if I were going to advertise clothes I would have the models wear some.

    I won’t click on outrageous, but I don’t hate the pics either. I think Alexader Ludwig looks great. I don’t remember him looking that muscular. Other than more variety in the responses, these look good to me. Pics of guys. And actually, Scott, the only one showing a lot of skin is Ludwig. Everyone else is buttoned and zipped. Have fun with it. Move on if you don’t like it. Don’t get gray hairs over it. ;)
