I was at HQ yesterday to do some shopping, and a friend who works there mentioned they laid off around 300 people and are cutting back on product lines to refocus. Don't expect a lot of niche items like motorcycle jackets, watches etc. to stick around. I believe most of the hits are to clothing. News story is here as well, although it doesn't confirm the 300 number.
