Even teenage girls who shop at Hollister have standards for the teeny-tiny shorts they buy.While skimpy summer attire is nothing new, Hollister caused a stir with its Arrow Point short–which appears to be the shortest ever with only a 2-inch inseam.
Eric Beder, an analyst at Brean Murray Carret & Co. first tipped us off about the controversy, which ensued after the shorts were posted to the Abercrombie offshoot’s Facebook page.
About half the customers Beder observed said the shorts “showed off too much.”
Responses from teenage girls ranged from “the shorts are getting shorter!” to “I wouldn’t even be able to get my leg in that” to “WTF.” Some customers also complained the $34.50 item was “overpriced.”
Responses from teenage boys on the page were predictably positive, and a countdown for summer broke out.
