Each piece in the collection originally retailed for US$15, though the entire lineup has been on markdown for clearance since 2014 (US$5; GB£4.99), and the product shown above is of what remains being sold. For archiving purposes, only unedited-assured, original images strictly from abercrombie.com were used in this post, though you can find images of the rest of the sold out product with your preferred online search engine.

The A&F Body line makes for a great addition to any Abercrombie & Fitch collection of product through time and, most specially, from the Mike Jeffries Era and from the last days of exuding elite, privileged prep identity. Collect them (from instore or online abercrombie.com to assure untampered quality) before their gone!

Stay FIERCE!
