Abercrombie and Fitch offers money for not wearing their merchandise

by Volker Weber

... here’s a first. Teen apparel retailer Abercrombie & Fitch Co. is offering to pay Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino not to wear its merchandise.

The New Albany, Ohio company released a statement Tuesday evening titled “A Win-Win Situation,” in which it stated a “deep concern” over the association between Mr. Sorrentino and the brand. A&F offered up a “substantial payment” to Mr. Sorrentino “to wear an alternate brand.”

I know a few old farts who wear A&F. Maybe they can get an offer as well.

But first you have to misbehave on TV like he did.

Disclaimer:
I saw the show on MTV for about five minutes "by accident" i.e. switching channels around on a lazy sunday afternoon. So I don't really know what the show is about. All I know is that five minutes is all I would like to spent for that kind of "entertainment".
