VINTAGE FISH BELT
The two of us met while working at Abercrombie and Fitch while on the East coast, back in 2005. We didn’t agree with the brand and it was the last place we ever expected to work, but clearly it was meant to be. One of our family members also worked at A&F, before either of us were born. It was launched in 1892, if you can believe it, and started as an outfitter and sporting goods brand. Abercrombie and Fitch was eventually bought by The Limited and they pushed it toward a younger customer. It’s sister company, Hollister became their West coast label and was launched in 2000. It was cool to come across this early-years Hollister Co. fish belt. It is a really funky piece of history and is almost fifteen years old.
