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?


Dude you have already filled the dumb comments cabinet...

I've heard the same things - this one is pet store puppy who was "rescued" from her original owner, and she's super sweet; aloof but very affectionate, loves to play, and does pretty well with other dogs. I have seen mean ones, though - a lot of apartments won't allow them, assuming they're just small akitas. I love her, though, she's a little princess and a hilarious character.

deets for Parker.

Yes I am wearing purple cords. No, you all can't have your thumbs back. Yes, it is indeed still a hendrix fit.

this guy's not serious, right?

 

No.  This couldn't be further from the truth.  The guy's a troll (probably another Miran), and I really wish he'd get banned.

How did you size on those polo socks?  I'm thinking of kopping some, and I want a drapey fit, but I'm worried about sloppy ankle stacks.

 

Remember to wear every day and not wash until 6  months to a year.
