Hey friends, it’s good to be back after a long break to visit Moody Publishers in Chicago! I had a blast touring the campus and doing radio interviews. I’m so proud to be a part of what they are doing.
PSA: I’ve decided that for the next few weeks, I’m going to reduce my posts to just Wednesdays. It’s not forever. But for over four years, I’ve posted three times a week, and after Life After Art’s first incredibly busy couple of months, I need to recharge my batteries a bit. I don’t want to get completely out of the groove, so I’ll still see you here once a week.
Now, let’s get into it.
First, CEO Mike Jeffries made some comments which confirmed what everyone knows: that they don’t actually want most of us wearing their clothes. That backfired.
Then, Greg Karber tried to make a clever statement by giving used A&F clothes to homeless people. A lot of us (including me, I admit) thought at first glance that it was a cool idea, until we looked closer and realized it wasn’t. That backfired too.
No one appreciated Jeffries’ bold honesty about his company’s vision. So, what does a clothing store for the coolest kids in school have to say to churches? Maybe more than we might think.
