Style Syllabus: Does Jack Wills Have "The Best Summer Job In America"?

Summer jobs don't always have to involve too-big polo shirts, papercuts, or a shit-eating grin—U.K. brand Jack Wills is billing their super-special summer retail position as "The Best Summer Job In America." They'll choose one person to work and live in their Nantucket store with seven other "Seasonaires" (who are, according to this video, blonde East Coast beach kids who hate pants and love fluro sunglasses). Throughout the summer, the winner will promote the brand in the Nantucket store, as well as in Newport, Southampton, Martha's Vineyard, L.A., and the U.K. for Polo events. Additionally, the lucky guy or gal will get $20,000 to use towards their next semester's tuition (along with their weekly pay). To enter, apply online between May 9 and June 20 here with a (Legally Blonde-style) video, displaying your awesome skills at beachcombing, drinking Pimm's Cups, and folding Polo shirts. Check out the video, below.
