Abercrombie & Fitch
(ANF) - Get Report is scheduled to report before the bell on Thursday, Nov. 29.
But the clothing-maker wasn't always the company that we know today.
The company used to be an "elite outfitter of sporting and excursion goods."
It even outfitted legends such as President Theodore Roosevelt and Richard Byrnes.
The store almost didn't make it today--it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1976. However, it was saved once it was purchased by another clothing company and the focus switched to the clothing styles that we know the brand for today.
