yeah, wish I had read the following before placing my recent Gap order: turns out they're pretty despicable, actually...
Warning: Slimy capitalists and deadly labor conditions! (Click to show)
Consumer and labor groups have focused more on persuading Gap rather than Walmart to join the Bangladesh factory safety plan. Gap has been the most vocal company in criticizing the plan, expressing concerns that overly litigious American lawyers could seize on the agreement to sue American companies on behalf of aggrieved factory workers in Bangladesh. Gap’s proposed changes would greatly limit any legal liability for any company that violated the plans. [...]
Under Gap’s proposal, if a retailer is found to have violated the agreement, the only remedy would be public expulsion from the factory safety plan. [...]
The labor unions and advocacy groups that have negotiated with H&M; Inditex, the Spanish company that owns the Zara chain; and other companies that have signed the plan criticized Gap’s proposal to change the agreement. These groups say Gap’s vigorous push against the version of the plan has helped sway some other American companies not to sign.
“Gap Inc. is ready to sign on today with a modification to a single area — how disputes are resolved,” said Scott Nova, executive director of the Worker Rights Consortium, a group sponsored by 175 colleges and universities. “Gap’s demand is that the agreement be made unenforceable — and therefore meaningless. What Gap wants is the right to renege on its commitments when it wishes.”

What tailor? Mine charges me closer to $30.

I third that.

Nope. Seemed like the discount did not apply

Not applicable to the $20 off lived-in khakis promo.

If the GAP Lived In Slim Khakis are comparable to 484's and Levi's 511 .... does that mean the GAP Lived In Skinny Khakis are like Levi's 510's ?!

Damn, I didn't even realize there was a lived-in skinny.  Wish I had thrown a pair of these in my Gap order last week.  Anybody tried these?

I'd love to hear more about the Ikat print shirt.  Good fit and color?  How long is it compared to other J.Crew shirts?  Good to wear untucked?  Do you like the collar?  TIA

Will report back once I receive them.

post #225 of 1014

Seems to be a lot of different versions of the red chambray (at least in the tag I notice)

Which one is the best?
