There have been a lot of comparisons made over the last week or so between Abercrombie & Fitch founder, Mike "We only like the cool kids" Jeffries and Lululemon founder, Chip "Our designs aren't flawed, your bodies are" Wilson. But there's one big difference between these two clothing moguls

Lululemon founder, Chip Wilson, recently said that the problem with his company's yoga pants is really a problem with some women's bodies. It appears they believe that plus-sized women don't engage in yoga, and what's more, they shouldn't deserve to. Why?

I feel sorry for Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries. All he did was say out loud what the vast majority of clothing lines already seem to be thinking and practicing. We can, and should, help young people to realize that there are many profound satisfactions to be had in life that do not rely on achieving a certain appearance or level of popularity (a fact that becomes comfortingly obvious as we age, yet is often difficult to grasp in high school). But we shouldn't blame A&F for being honest enough to articulate an omnipresent elitist marketing strategy no one else wants to own up to. We are, after all, the ones that make such strategies pay off.
