In Defense Of American Apparel’s Dress Code Manual

Gawker got its hands on the 19 pages of style standards that one is expected to meet while working at Dov Charney’s hipster Wonkaland, American Apparel. And yes, some of it is kind of ridiculous:

• Max one ring per hand, one cm in width

• No overplucking eyebrows

• No Uggs, ballerina flats, Vans, or Converse

• Outstanding dental hygiene

• Shower daily

And now there is total outrage on the Internet! How dare they! Except…most of this is standard practice at retail boutiques trying to promote an image. Do you think this is very different than the guidelines put forward by Abercrombie & Fitch, or hell, even Walmart? The one “funny” aspect of this whole lookbook is that American Apparel has to specify that their employees shower and keep their breathe from smelling. That should be common practice for any work environment: the fact that the hipsters that work at the store have had enough incidents with not bathing to warrant this as a requirement speaks more for the people who want to work at American Apparel, rather than the company itself.

      Hei, Hva er den beste måten å føle deg sexy og attraktiv? Nei, det er ikke ved hjelp av en tredemølle. Du gjettet det, jeg snakker om røttene til romantikk, nemlig intime klær.Det er lett å føle seg mer trygg og sexy når du er kledd i forførende intim apparel som sexy kvinner undertøy. Bare å vite at du er kledd for å imponere under klærne kan gjøre underverker for din selvtillit! Hvis du ikke er vant til bruk sexy undertøy, og deretter starte med noe enkelt som en pen BH og truser satt til å øke selvtilliten din. prøv det baby!
