Abercrombie & Fitch, with 843 stores in the U.S. and 163 stores elsewhere, will drop identifying marks in U.S. stores with the spring 2015 season. Contributor Walter Loeb sees it as a big mistake. "I think that this is a very radical decision for a company who has made a significant investment in its logo over many years. The Moose was A&F’s version of Ralph Lauren’s Polo Pony. Customers liked the identifying mark."
