Dear Robespierre

Makes sense

Dear Robespierre,

I work directly across from the Abercrombie & Fitch on 5th Avenue and every day there is at least 70 people waiting in line to get in. What the hell is going on?

Above 14th Street

Dear Above 14th Street,

I have witnessed this incredibly disturbing scene on the weekends, when hordes of people in light colored Mudd jeans, hooded Victoria Secret "University of Pink"sweatshirts and Sketcher sneakers stand in line with cameras waiting to get into this ridiculous store. A very close friend of mine has been to the Abercrombie in The Mall at Short Hills, NJ, and this friend can assure you that all A&Fs smell like rotting eggs and hot sulfur and have black and white photographs of people that are intended to make you feel that if you're not spending your days playing tackle football or rigging up a boat you might as well throw in the towel now. This begs the question of why people just don't buy A&F clothes online rather than embarrassingly wait and possibly be seen by other people standing in line to buy chain store clothes. This is because the 5th Avenue Abercrombie is filled with an elusive breed of humans found only in Manhattan and Los Angeles known as "models" that are unknown to tourists from the Midwest. The reason I know this is because I also happen to be a bunion model. I hope this answers your question.
