Abercrombie & Fitch boss’s jet rules: wear flip-flops and play Phil Collins
The boss of Abercrombie & Fitch requires male models who work as stewards aboard his private jet to wear boxer briefs, flip-flops and a “spritz” of the retailer’s own brand aftershave, it has been claimed in a US court case.
According to an “aircraft standards” manual, male flight crew are told to present themselves clean shaven in a uniform of Abercrombie polo shirts, boxer briefs, jeans, flip-flops and gloves (black for when handling silverware and white for laying the table) while working on Abercrombie chief executive Michael Jeffries’ executive jet.
The extraordinarily detailed manual, which also requires crew to play Phil Collins’ Take Me Home over the jet’s intercom as the jet takes off on homeward bound flights, was disclosed in an age discrimination lawsuit brought by a former pilot. (via The Guardian)
