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.
