 I tried to go there and read, but got sidetracked by the teacher who fed his students semen-laced cookies...  WTF?

I haven't shopped there in years either...mostly becausd they are a bit expensive... I love their jeans and my sister just gave me a pair of her old navy jeans and I was thinking of goibg and getting another pair. But after reading this I'm rethinking that decision :/

I stopped shopping there because the clothes are cheaply made. After a few washes I would find holes in articles of new clothes, even when I followed washing instructions.

If I do shop there it has been for jeans and I never had any issues with them but I haven't shopped there in years..I can't remember the last time I even went into an old navy.

That is normally the only thing I ever bought at old navy.  I liked their jeans but after reading this I doubt I will be shopping there anytime soon.

It is a year old. It has never been proven though ( not even what the jacket was it seems ). I also doubt the guy was all calm & just said, that is disrespectful, they need to take it off. Thanks & walked away. Most people that would go out of their way to tell someone they need to take it off & even go to the manager, would usually get a little heated. If the manager was concerned for their or the teens safety, they could have done this extra step. Doesn't have anything to do with the corporation in general, other than, they are trying to go by what was said. Which the manager stated that the teen was threatened earlier so when he started, they reacted with what they thought was best, that no one wanted to disrespect the military in anyway, including this teen, and that it was a French Jacket from the 30's ( was it? Who knows )I also know a lot of military members that will let their own kids wear their own things like this. So...there is alot to wonder about this.
