Dandy of the Week: Michael Jeffries (ABERCROMBIE & FITCH)

Mike Jeffries’ life isn’t easy seeing he’s probably the boss of the possibly most unpleasant fashion label in the world: ABERCROMBIE & FITCH (A&F).

His company is being mocked everywhere, be it for dull marketing initiatives (dozens of half-naked adolescents in front of newly opened stores), questionable human resource practices, unpleasant school-sports-locker-room-smells in the stores, or, most frequently for the ‘chavy’ suburb style of the brand.

When you’re constantly exposed to such humiliation you would at least want to lead a somewhat comfortable life outside of the realm of public awareness. For example when you are traveling.

As was revealed recently 68-year-old Jeffries insists on having exclusively freshly groomed, male staff on his private jet, wearing nothing but ABERCROMBIE & FITCH polo shirts, flip flops, boxer briefs, gloves (black ones when silver ware is brought, white ones when the table is being set. This absolutely makes sense!), and a hint of the brand’s cologne. Those of you wondering if something is missing here: Yes, of course there is. It’s the pants. And that is, even if everyone is going to get angry again about A&F, absolutely correct.

We too, would have our staff constantly run around in underwear – if we had a private jet, that is. We can’t see anything indecent about it (we’d merely make massive adjustments to the gender diversity).

Quite the opposite actually: We find such consequent acting out of one’s aesthetics very dandyesque. Therefore we’re awarding Michael S. Jeffries, the ethereally aesthetic Botox-sugar daddy, the highest rank of this blog. He is our DANDY OF THE WEEK.

A very beautiful Sweater for this very shitty Weather: HENRIK VIBSKOV Fall/Winter 2014 Sweater

The good thing about the current fall/winter-weather is, that one is finally allowed to wear clothes from the current fall/winter-collections. For example this really beautiful, and surely also really warm jumper by the Danish designer HENRIK VIBSKOV.

Not so good about the current autumn/winter-weather is by the way: everything else.

Well, we do not want to complain. As long as we are wearing that jumper.

You can order the sweater for an absolutely okay price of 250,- Euro, for example here
