Peeking Into Gulfstream Of Abercrombie CEO: Clothing boss has exacting standards on his luxury jet
The Smoking Gun ^ | October 18, 2012

Posted on 10/19/2012 5:03:48 PM PDT by EveningStar

When traveling in the corporate jet, the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch makes it clear that he has stringent requirements for his luxury travel.

Those needs span 47 pages in a remarkable “Aircraft Standards” manual that covers everything from the underwear male cabin staffers must wear (boxer briefs) to the seating plan for the dogs of A&F chief Michael Jeffries, 68, and his boyfriend Matthew Smith, 49.

Nothing to see here, just another narcissistic psychopath at work.

This must be one of those 1% ers, flying around in corporate jets, that Barry was talking about. Strange, since the guy’s a homo and probably a Barry donor.

His private jet, his rules. Gay or not, he is the one paying the bills.

Don’t like it, don’t work there.

Somehow, being anal retentive goes well with his sexual preference.

Sounds boring to me. Flip-flops can be dangerous, particularly if the aircraft is in rough air.

Odd that he can’t seem to buy a good plastic surgeon at that income.

Hayyyy,

This is NOT a nonsmoking flight.

Smoking is allowed in the cabin and lavatories after takeoff.

clean-shaven males had to wear a uniform of Abercrombie polo shirts, boxer briefs, flip-flops and a “spritz” of the retailer’s cologne

Imagine being stuck in an airplane for 5 hours with that fairy.

I'm less obsessive.

I'd have more musical variety and "Bond Girls" for cabin staff.

Those magazine inserts are annoying, I’m with him on that ;-)

So, having skimmed over this document, is anyone else having unwanted images of “Manual for Sex” floating through their brain?

Agreed. But always interesting to find out how liberal elites demand to be treated and how the treat others. I bet this guy was big on redistribution of wealth and social justice. But just not his wealth or any justice that would cost him any inconvenience.

Flip-flops can be dangerous, particularly if the aircraft is in rough air.”

In the olden days when flight attendants were all obviously females we had to learn to walk gracefully up and down the aisle in very high heels and shorter very tight skirt even when flying through a lot of turbulence. Some of us also learned, however, that there is no way to exit via the emergency chute in this type of attire though.

If you absolutely had to, I would imagine you would accept the show that you would be giving to those at the bottom of the chute.

You don’t really fly in turbulence on private. There is more leeway to fly over it, under it and around it.

I only had turbulence once and that was coming into to Fagstaff, AZ. You ride the crest of the mountain as you come in and there’s not muchyyou’re gonna do about it.

the “Aircraft Standards” was shot down in flames by the “his boyfriend” bit.

Obviously not men’s wear.

Boxers for his male cabin staff. They probably have to wear the backwards too.

You are just tooooo funny. Better to just wonder than to know and be disappointed!

I flew for TWA and there were no old or ugly flight attendants. We weighed in before every flight. Had a 2 lb. leeway and then you were grounded. But we did have a lot of fun. Took 8 hours and 2 stops from KC to LAX so you got to know passengers pretty well.

That these people run America and American companies tell me how far past its peak the country is.

I found the hypersexualization of the A&F clothing line distrubing and queer. They targeted children. Now it’s all clear.

Islam and homosexuality, America’s Charybdis and Scylla.

My God! What are they going to do now that Newsweek is dropping their print edition? That will cause a major re-write of Section 12 with Lord knows how many meetings and what level of executive input to accomplish.
