40 Sexy Man in queue are an everyday fixture until the opening of apparel brand Abercrombie & Fitch's flagship store in Singapore's premier shopping district. All 40 male models have been hired to stand in a straight line in front of the store at Knightsbridge mall on Orchard Road, which will be officially opened on December 15 at 10 am. All these male models are dressed just in bright red A&F sweatpants. Men with tight bodies give flashing smiles and striking poses. These men will take turns to greet passers daily from 11am - 5pm, right up to the next Thursday. In this weekend if you are in the town, then drop by and say HI to the guys.
Initially responses from the ground were lukewarm, with lots of onlookers taking photos from a far. However within half an hour of their appearance, curious onlookers began to approach them to get their photographs captured. These ribbed hunky topless guys come from places like United States, France, Denmark, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Italy and also comprise a few local Singaporeans. Among the 40 models, nearly 5 were sourced locally. They are game for everything such as posing with pot-bellied men, lifting women up in the air, holding babies -- all the time smiling and waving. A&F's use of "Shirtless greeters" is not at all a new concept. In 2009, the 'Shirtless greeters' first debuted in Milan and have been normal practice for all its flagship stores ever since, as per the brand's spokesman.
