Abercrombie & Fitch’s logo, which once helped the retailer command sky-high prices on graphic tees from America’s youth, will be dead by this spring in the U.S.

“In the spring season, we’re looking to take the North American logo business to practically nothing, but protect logo in international stores,” Abercrombie Chief Executive Officer Mike Jeffries said on an earnings call today. “The logo business is larger in Hollister, and that becomes a little more difficult to overcome than it has in A&F, although we’re overcoming that in both brands.”

The brand, once worn as a status symbol among American teenagers and college kids, is no longer viewed as elite and prestigious — and Abercrombie is well aware of that. Earlier this year, the company removed references to “East Coast traditions and Ivy League heritage” and words like “sexy,” “idolised,” and “privileged,” from its corporate filings, and replaced them with phrases such as “confident and engaging” and “totally accessible.”
