Are you white and do you shop at the GAP? - Page 4

post #46 of 54
is there a real corelation between being white and gap? the times i've been in gap i saw a very mixed ethnicity. i believe asians in particular like gap.

and so racial stereotyping continues...

I'll tell you though...one time I went into "Against All Odds" because it was the only store that had a particular baseball cap (yeah, yeah, whatever) that I wanted and it was quite a trip.

It's an urban hip-hop kind of store. What Gap, A&F and Banana Republic are to white people, Against all Odds is to black people.

I'm white, and I shop at the Gap for jeans. Their original boot cut jeans (women's) fit great, and are always on sale for like $30, sometimes less. Everything in the men's section is made extremely big/really shapeless, I think. For about the same prices with better fitting and better looking clothes, I prefer Benetton.

Along with Banana Republic (and maybe Old Navy?), they have great deals in the sale section.

I've also never noticed the thing with white people and the Gap before, but now that I think about it, I think of white dads wearing USA themed Gap shirts and hoodies.

I guess I don't get it and maybe my irony software is not working right, but it seems that Gap and race is at best a spurious correlation. Gap is not fashionable, it's not low price, it's not special. It's by design tasteless and bland--meant to offend no one and arouse no one. It's a concept that may have passed it sell-by date.

It seems a very yuppie suburbanite sort of brand.

Analogies.
