the gap uneck compared to JE fits very similar and materials feel very similar. Most notable difference is that the u-neck and curved hem are more extreme on actual JE u-necks. But fit wise I would say same size. It seems like the gap sweatshirts fit more boxy than JE but the tees are nice and slim. My favorite pieces from this collab after getting it in aare the tees.

Alright..I gotta say, after purchasing the gapxje hoodie I thought the material was great and the fit was OK. Yesterday I tried on a buddies villain hoodie and I was amazed with the quality and fitment. The large from JE fits like a glove while the medium from gapxje fit well, bit snugged but baggy on the bottom.

Visually they are both the same but the quality and fitment is def. On a differ level.

Gonna sell my gapxje villian hoodie for the real deal....

also can anyone comment on the jeans from the gap x gq collection?

The store I went to had a ton of the jeans and I found that the difference in the distressing between pairs were significant. Some were a lot darker with minimal distressing while others actually looked like the GQ lookbook pics. I managed to find one in my size with the distressing done right. As for the fit, it is definitely not skinny, slim at max with a bit of taper. Oh and the thighs areas is a tad roomy. Not a bad fit for me as I can't squeeze into skinny jeans but I'm still debating if I will keep these.

JE+ x Gap Villain is good for everyday wear and trash. It's really heavy and boxy lol does not feel slim at all. I'm wearing the U-Neck JE x Gap today I'll take a picture, I'm 5'10, 150 and got a size Large.

I saw someone post that their tags on the gap collaboration had John Elliott misspelled.

I wonder did anyone get JE+Gap sweatpants? I got size small and wondering has the real deal same fit, since it wasnt really slim that I hoped it was.. Just remembering John Elliott saying in GQ:

 

 

"I go down the rabbit hole of fabric selection for my own line, and I took that same approach with my Gap stuff. Like the sweatpants: They're a signature for me, inspired by a late-1980s Colombian soccer pant that is really slim from ankle to knee. So the Gap version's fit is basically identical to mine. It's made from a thick French terry cloth that's really similar to what I use. And Gap even sourced high-end zippers."—John Elliott

We did strive to produce something close to our brand, but our fit is in fact substantially slimmer.

Gaps for fat Americans, of course it would never be the same sizing. I'm sure je argued it be slimmer than the patterns that were made but you can only sway so much when working with big corporate partners. This also gives regular people accessible clothing.
