COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch says it will discontinue its quarterly catalog, which had been criticized for its young, scantily clad or nude models shown in sexually suggestive poses.
Earlier this month, the company stopped selling its racy Christmas catalog, saying its stores needed the shelf space for a new fragrance line.
In a release late Tuesday, the company said it would replace the A&F Quarterly catalog with a new promotion.
"While it has enjoyed success with the Quarterly over the years, the Company believes it is time for new thinking and looks forward to unveiling an innovative and exciting campaign in the spring," the release stated.
Company spokesman Hampton Carney declined further comment Wednesday.
The 280-page 2003 Christmas Field Guide featured photos of nude or partially clothed young people posing alone, in couples, threesomes and groups.
