tween don't be so worried about wearing socks without shoes!

You may feel insecure for a bit, and they will accumulate pebbles and nails and pigeon shit, but you gotta realize this is all expected when you're taking part in a clothing revolution, man. Keep your chin up. It gets better.

I think it's smart mixing high and low end. I wouldn't buy a $300 t shirt just to complete a designer look from head to toe. It makes sense to invest in key pieces and be economical with basic pieces

GAP T-shirts are marked $44.95 on the card tag, and then coated with sticker after sticker $39.95.  $24.95.  $12.99.   $3.99.  Finally $1.99 and yes, then a lot of people pick them up.  When you are in the GAP store, the place is overflowing with a tidal wave of thousands upon thousands of t-shirts, all scattered on the floor and piled into that sandbin-like platform in the middle of the store, like a ginormous garbage heap. 

Doesn't that bother you a little?  Forget the question of GAP quality--just consider the sheer disrespect for clothes, money, and production values that is so blatant in GAP stores.

I have no problems at all with "inexpensive".  Some of the best things in life are "inexpensive", because most people don't know about them.  But something is wrong with this kind of inexpensive.

Then there is the question of "quality".  Going by online "reviews' by "customers" on GAP's website, GAP clothes are the finest things on Earth, worthy of emperors and Mr Burns.
You try it on in store, it fits.  You wear it, for 4 days in June 2012.  you then throw it into the washer.  It says "Machine wash cold, delicate cycle".  For cotton?!?!  Anywho, follow the instructions.
after the wash, you open the machine.  The machine is coated with a fine layer of cotton fibres cluster-mushy thingys.  Good thing you didn't put your Yohji black hakama harem whatever weirdo pants in there with the GAP t-shirt, otherwise the black Yohji would be coated with GAP t-shirt lint!  The t-shirt also appears to be a different shape.  Moving on, you put in the dryer, delicate heat, follow the instructions.  You check the lint-trap--there is enough cotton fibre in there that you'd think half of Burkino Faso's production this year is trapped in it. 
The t-shirt is now a different shape, and doesn't feel as "soft" as it felt at the store.  The collar welt looks like a puppy chewed on it.  The colour has faded also.  It's 4 days later! 


But who cares!   If you are using coin-operated laundry, it's $1 for the wash, and $1.25 for the dryer.  $2.25 total.  THe t-shirt only cost you $1.99.  So you reason, next time don't do laundry.   Just throw it out and buy another GAP T-shirt.  There was a pile of t-shirts the size of Kilimanjaro after all!  Is it just me, or is something wrong with this?

this. fucking. guy.

@ saludo- why would you laundry a gap t shirt one at a time that will cost you $2.25 like you said. I find gap t shirts and khakis quite a good quality product for their price. Maybe I'm just a better laundrier than you, I don't know shog[1].gif
