Are you white and do you shop at the GAP? - Page 3

post #31 of 54
For the kind of stuff the Gap and similar establishments are good for, I'd just as soon buy garments at Costco and Target, where I am likely to get even better value. That's my practice, anyway.

In honor of this thread, I just went to Gap. There I found a great baby blue cotton sweater on sale for $12.99. Last size M too, suckas.

Damn. I was going to go by there myself also, see if I could find any of the old dark 1969 jeans from past seasons they have been clearing out for 20 or so $ (apparently they don't look worn out and filthy enough to sell )...

A few things now and then, then they went through this awfull salmon and baby blue phase and I steered clear for a while. I will take this time to fully endorse the cheap linen shirts offered at Target, some of my favorite shirts!

I am white and my blood is blue. None of Gap's offerings has ever inspired me to enter one of their stores.

White, last shopped at the Gap in Cologne ca. 2002, when I bought a few pairs of khaki shorts on clearance for about 10DM (<5USD at the time) there. Admittedly, I did recently buy a pair of Italian-made selvedge Gap 1969 jeans at a vintage store. They were marked cheaper than regular Gap jeans.

Ouch. Don't be talking smack about my new sweater.

I'll toss in a good word for the linen/cotton shirts at Old Navy. I tried the linen shirts at Target, but the pockets were much too big for my slim build. The ones at ON, on the other hand, worked great for me. The blue color is particularly nice, and at $24.50 full retail, the price is right.

At the Doc's suggestion I also checked these out. Have not found any in blue but I have one in flax, one in white and one in brown. Good value at the price and if you size down, relatively slim fitting.

Skalogre, my local store just got the blue in a week or so ago. You might check back if you're interested. I liked how they looked on the Web site, and liked them even better in person. It's rare I'll pay retail for ON stuff, but I went ahead and got one at full price.

Not to worry Doc, I'm reffering to some seasonal clothes, perhaps four years ago. hideous color combinations put together...no swipe intended on your purchase.

I didn't really think you were. And I agree the Gap comes up with some odd/ugly designs. Lately, I've noticed that it seems to be offering more and more near-copies of items at sister store Banana Republic.

Like he said.

It's all about how you mix and match.

Didn't Sharon Stone wear a Gap t-shirt to the Oscars one year?

Hmm... I bought a white one for my brother and a brown one for myself week before last; there were no blue ones. I will check again though. Thanks!

White and I don't shop at the Gap. I might own 3 of their tee-shirts.

Holdfast, aren't all psychologists closet statisticians? Oops...there goes the thread down that slippery slope. I've just given an entire group "special" attributes.

I'm about as white as can be, and I used to shop at the GAP, but don't really anymore. I'm not opposed, but I prefer JCrew or BR where I will buy odds and ends on deep clearance. BR's boxers, for example, are great, socks can be okay. I have several old GAP polos and a few other things that I do wear all along. Today around the house I wore an old pair of GAP khakis I paid less than $10 for about 4 years ago.
