Abercrombie & Fit
...That's what the new Abercrombie & Fitch store soon to open in London should change its name to after it was revealed this week that only the super gorgeous need apply for staff jobs. The American chain plans to hire in-house models found by talent scouts to fit the store's "healthy and handsome" image. According to Vogue, there will constantly be two sales assistants wearing only swimwear - ideal then for London's weather right now, not! Other reports suggest that only a few out of the store's 500 employees will actually have previous retail experience. I won't lie, the promise of seeing male models in the buff while doing a spot of shopping does appeal to the senses but only hiring beautiful people? Please!
The London flagship store opens in Burlington Gardens this Thursday 22 March.
