Abercrombie & Fitch, an American retailer that sells casual wear for teenagers/young adults, has opened its doors in Singapore! Located at Knightsbridge (beside Paragon), the store-to-be had already been the talk of the crowd.
The debut of a huge billboard of what the public deemed as inappropriate of a guy in a very sexual sense was taken down months after the outcry made by members of the public.
Days before the opening of the store, the crowd at Orchard Road encountered a feast for the eyes when they happen to chance upon a whole row of topless, foreign and hot-bodied guys in nothing but Abercrombie & Fitch’s signature red sweatpants. Tourists snapped photos and the local girls sure enjoyed taking pictures with the eye candy.
I paid a maiden visit to the store on its opening day, finding a crowd queueing outside to enter. Some loyal shoppers had parked themselves since early morning to get a glimpse of the outlet when it officially opened its doors at 10am that day.
The line of topless hunks had got their tops back on and served as salesmen in the dark, pub-like store. Two dashing doormen were to the delight of the queuers, as well as the only topless man in the store, just for the privilege of taking Polaroid photos with the eager customers.
The outlet has 3 storeys, with menswear occupying the basement and first storey and female wear on the second storey. I personally like the clothes offered by Abercromie, showing a trendy and chic style suitable for teenagers like me. I would have to sit on the fence about my opinions on their dimly lit outlets.
Otherwise, it was a great trip down and the bombarding of photos of topless A & F guys on my Facebook timeline made me go to town. Thanks Denise for making the trip down with me!
