Anyone try the "Gap Gough"? - Page 3

post #31 of 121
thanks, much appreciated.

I saw the Gough for $40 at the downtown Seattle Gap, as well. They're kind of over the top: selvage watch pocket and waistband; hell, even the edges of the little strip of fabric used to attach the tag to the pants are woven back into themselves. I didn't like some of the details-- the odd-looking watch pocket, the fact that "Japanese denim" was printed in gigantic letters on the inside of the waistband in English and Japanese, etc.-- but for $40 you could certainly do worse. I'm not really in a financial position to be able to buy them for people, otherwise I'd offer.

I exchanged my Morrison for a pair of Gough today. I tried on a 32x30 and 31x32. I normally wear a 32x30, but the 32x30 felt large and disproportioned. The 31x32 was a night and day difference - fit perfectly except for the length. It seems on these, the sizing is 1 higher at the waist and 2 higher for length. I don't know if that means these jeans are unsanforized. I definitely need to hem these as I don't wear a cuff, but I'm not sure if I should hem 2" or 4".

I'm all for cheap denim. Here are my thoughts. Gough: Currently on sale in store for $39.99, looks like clearance, I dont think they will be on the site. Cut is like APC Rescue. Denim is decent midweight quality. Details are kind of "overselvaged". Corny. I personally hate the rear pocket, I tried to convince myself they would make some sort of nice variety in my jeans rotation, but I think they just look dumb. I'm going to return them, even at $40. BTW the rear pocket lower part is lined. Straight Fit Selvage: On site for $69.99, $49 during 30% weekend. Cut is just slightly, but noticeably narrower than Gough. The denim is also lighter weight. The details are much more straighforward though, which I like. And rainbow selvage. I might keep these for when I want to wear a slim pair in crispy condition. Not sure yet though. Lastly, something to think about. Uniqlo straight cut, $39.50 all day long...

So they're not as oversized as people've said? +1 in the waist and true inseam?

i'm usually a 30 in everything, but my true true waist is closer to a 31. 29 was the smallest they had the other day, so if available, i probably would have gone down to a 28.

thanks for the sizing, been hungover all day so didn't get this till now anyways.

man those sizes seem small, I thought this was a full cut. Do the widths get larger as the waist sizes increase do you think? So if I got a 32" waist maybe the knee and legs will be bigger? I'm usually more comfortable with around a 9.5" bottom and knee.

Because I'm cheap I got a pair of the rigid straight-leg, 30 x 30. I'll post measurements if anyone's interested once they arrive.

My good deed for the holidays ....

Just picked up a pair of the Gough's for $19.99 and although there are things I would like to change about them, they are an excellent value at that price. My recommendations would be to size down one inch in the waist (so if you wear 34, order a 33) and two inches in the inseam (32 normally = 30). The inseams are two inches longer in order to be cuffed. The Gough has a boxy straight leg fit. The quality is not bad, but the cut could be improved.

I also picked up two pairs of the Morrison's for 19.99 each (one selvedge and one regular 1969 style). The Morrison fit is a lot slimmer than the Gough and the leg is tappered. Again not ideal, but the price can not be beat. The Morrisons should fit with your actual GAP size -- don't size down because these are not intended to be worn with a cuff. I will try to get some pictures up this week..

If you call the Gap hotline, they will track down the jeans in your size and you can contact the store directly to purchase. At $19.99, these are an incredible value...Shipping is $5.00.

Gough style number = 445212001
Morrison style number = 408895001

Now if anyone has a lead on a Wii, please send me an e-mail (my user id @ hotmail.com) or PM.

Enjoy!!!

@bpo26c: thanks a bunch man. Had to call GAP stores in 4 different states to find a pair in 28*30. Great deal indeed.

All:

I was in Gap today and noticed these. I was pleasantly surprised to see them carrying selvage, and it does appear to be, in fact, real selvage. My Gap actually had a whole bunch of both the Gough and the Morrison on clearance for $20! I tried on my normal size for Gap jeans in both but ended up needing to size down. The Gough was my definite preference but they didn't have anything smaller than what I tried on. I decided to buy the Morrison and take my chances. $20 is a huge bargain for selvage, and I figured I'll wear them around the house for a couple days and then if I hate them I'll give them to Goodwill or something.

I would check it out. I know that for denim purists buying from Gap may be a huge step but they're some pretty nice jeans, even for full price.
