    Abercrombie and Fitch has always played on the homo-eroticism of its marketing to sell clothes
    Now Bruce Weber ... the photographer who is largely responsible for its sexiness has taken it to a new level
    Where there is no longer any ambiguity

    Well.

    Saw this coming 10 years ago, why it took so long is the only surprising thing. icon_twisted.gif

    Next stop: Sean Cody bareback territory.

    Second Look: Bleah.

    After review, I'm disappointed.

    I was hoping to see moar anemic Abercrombie model ass.

    Instead just some bromancing dude brahs with a little extra bi-curious angst. I guess NakedKombat.com's profit margin is still safe for now, lol...

    Right? Men who don't know what fashion is but think A&F are fashionable just because a lot of their clothing looks alike so it goes together, love that shit.

    True fact:

    A&F sales floor workers - making the big $12/hour USD in major metro areas = "A&F Model".

    A very small subset of these boys and girls get tapped for actual photo work.

    Yeah that's a clever way for them to convince people to do that and pay them shit.

    The model, "models" work at the 5 av store in NYC. They get paid more.

    He's on the shopping bag though but thanks for the info. icon_razz.gif

    Actually, no...I change my mind, I wasn't joking.

    At the gym, around the house, to run a quick errand - no problem wearing A&F.

    Going out, or on a date? Yeah, turn-off. That bothers you? Oh well.

    It is an old trick in retail - a way of getting better looking kids to work for crap money while making them feel falsely elite.

    When I was a teenager working in retail I was offered a job at Tiffany as a "Merchandise Ambassador." I would have been paid slightly more than a grocery store clerk for that oh-so-prestigeous title.

    I instead took a job across the street at Bergdorf Goodman as a mere Sales Associate and cleared several thousand dollars a month in commissions. Not bad for a kid working 15-20 hours a week max.

    Modeling is serious business, although not brain surgery. And for all the demands and requirements -- a model NEVER re-folds clothes or straightens a rack or offers to "put that in a dressing room for you."

    It is what it is and it ain't modeling.

    ^ I never understand how people fall for that. Like, I realized in the first 5 seconds it was just a clever way to get them to fold clothes for shit icon_razz.gif

    They do the same thing everywhere though. The hospital has like 500 directors. Technically I'm a director too but I never use the title because I realize they are just trying to give me a false sense of pride icon_razz.gif

    +1

    Anyone who still thinks A&F is fashionable is LATE!
