I often wondered about stuff like this, how some of those young guys who work at Polo can afford their Black Label suits. A girl I knew in high school worked at Hollister. If I remember right, as a way of making sure only certain sized girls worked ther they gave their employee discounts only on certain sizes of clothes. I still don't really understand the commission system, but it'd make sense that a good SA should do well for themselves. A couple of the SAs at J.Press once mentioned to me that they lived on the upper east side, which kinda surprised me at the time.
