Abercrombie & Fitch has overturned its infamous hot sales assistant policy

Abercrombie & Fitch has overturned its infamous hot sales assistant policy

Catchup News learns today that the toned abs, naked torsos and slim pristine models that used to be commonly found in their natural habitat aka on the shop floor at Abercrombie & Fitch stores are officially no more. They’re still alive, they just might have to get jobs with their brains now like us regular folk. The clothes company has scrapped rules governing the attractiveness of hires, signalling the end of former ceo Mike Jeffries’ reign (of terror) at the high street store. Christos Angelides, president of Abercrombie, and Fran Horowitz, head of sister-company Hollister, told Bloomberg they believe stores and clothes were tailored to Jeffries’ strange needs for too long.

Jeffries previously banned French manicures, hair gels and moustaches on stores workers and until last year he had refused to sell black clothes. He also reportedly put together a 40-plus page manual that dictated the behaviour and dress of passengers on his private jet. And this guy was in charge of a clothes company?? Lord help us all. But from now on, employees will not be restricted to a dress code as Abercrombie attempts to modernising, and they’ve also apparently scrapped the idea of having topless models welcome shoppers into stores. It also plans to raise the lighting, lower the music and stop spraying so much cologne into the air. Naked torsos will no longer appear on bags. It’s a brave new world out there. More from Catchup News next.
