This seems like a very wise idea to me. When I recently passed through Paris a few friends asked me if I could bring some things with me to save postage. They sent about 5 ebay items and $400 worth of Abercrombie to my address - TWO of my holdings. I had to pack a suitcase just for them. I already consider these Parisian friends of mine, both in the movie industry, to fashionable types and the weak dollar is only making our goods more attrative.

I am long on ANF largely with global expansion in mind and here is another bit of info from ANF that confirms the European appeal is even helping sales here. I just hope they can maintain the cult following and manage NOT to overexpose the bran.
