See The Leaked Copy Of A&F’s Very Exacting Employee Style Guide

If we learned anything from the Abercrombie and Fitch jet’s “Aircraft Standards” manual that was leaked to the press last year, it’s that this is a company with standards. Sure, they may involve less clothing and more overzealous cologne spritzing than most, but that’s what makes Abercrombie Abercrombie, right? The latest internal documents to hit the web are from a rigorous style guide showing employees (or should we say models?) exactly how to obtain that artfully mussed collegiate look — step-by-step photographic tutorials included.

BuzzFeed obtained a copy of the spring 2013 manual and, well, the styling rules are just what you’d expect from the store. Some highlights? Women’s skinny jeans must be cuffed precisely seven eighths of an inch, scrunched sleeves are “new this season”, and brown leather flip flops “look great with every look”.

See the leaked guide below, and watch the video for more on the corporate jet craziness:
