Heads up on GAP Chambray shirt. - Page 3

post #31 of 151
I got one too. Ditto on the fit, better than the J.Crew version. I dislike the floppiness of the collar, not sure if it a construction / quality thing or a chambray shirt thing.

Well it was mentioned that there was quality issues so I can only assume. I don't understand why you would buy something if you aren't content with it (you mentioned crappy buttons among things too). I'd rather spend that money on lunch or save up for a decent-quality chambray shirt.

And how does this make it worth checking out exactly? (puzzled)

Is there a reason a picture of this shirt hasn't been posted yet? Pocket flaps seem a little wimpy/unnecessary to me.

It's < $50, meaning it's more in the impulse buy category for most folks, and, IMO, it fits decent, it looks decent, and I could buy and wear out 4 of these and still come out ahead over a "high-end" shirt. That's a win in my book.

The quality issues for me are the cheap buttons and the sleeve openings. I don't think many outsiders can tell the buttons are cheap unless they're fondling it and most of the times I have something over the shirt or roll up the sleeves, so the other issue isn't that big a deal. I was just pointing them out to all of the detailed oriented people we have around here.

I think even at regular price of 45, the shirt's a decent deal, and Gap always has sales going on too. I have the blue one, but the grey looks better IMO, but I just happened to have a very similar looking one already. It does fit pretty well and general aesthetics to most outsiders will be no different then a JCrew one. And maybe it's just me since I usually wear a shirt maybe about once every 2 or 3 wks, but I've never had a shirt, even H&M ones, die on me within a year.

in all fairness, probably a good shirt to wear while changing the oil of your car, or while painting your house, or like, hugging kunk's mom.

I recommend the shirt because the fit is very good.

Heads up on shutting the fuck up. Noone cares about socks from jc penney, ties from sears or your retarded gap chambray. Man up and go to rrl or self edge.

Tough talk prolly more believable if you brought your rabbit-in-the-hat trick.

I'm sure bluemagic is a scholar and a gentleman irl blah blah I'm sick of threads that have nothing to do with the notion of style implied by this sites very name. Your clumsy attempt at wit doesn't restore my faith either.

I own both versions of the gap. bought them the day it was 2 shirts for one price.

I haven't worn the blue one yet, only the gray. like the gray for what it is.

I also have the crew one which is better by terms of final quality. But I'm fine with both gaps.

I don't understand the anger here? It's a shirt...
