Abercrombie & Fitch is an upscale clothing brand founded in 1892. Initially established as outfitters of high-end sporting and excursion equipment, it was purchased in 1978 by Oshman's Sporting Goods, and later sold to The Limited in 1988, the latter of which turned A&F into a brand offering casual apparel for young adults.
