Brand icons 2

Further to my last posting... why are A&F shirts so bloody small? I was stuck in the change rooms a few months ago trying to extracate my head and arms from an A&F shirt which, according to the label inside the collar, should have fitted me comfortably. Don't laugh. I was seriously panicking with my arms flailing above my head (an embarassing image of me rushing out of the change room to ask for assistance caused me to break out in a cold sweat) Eventually, I managed to get the thing off on my own. When I tried the next size up (and I was seriously contemplating a diet by this stage), the shirt not only accentuated my pastly upper arms and armpit fur (because the sleeves were so short) but also drew attention to my 'muffin top'.
