Wow, quite the response. I definitely have some looking around to do- thank you all. I guess if some of you approve, I will go into the Gap and check out their stuff. I haven't been in there... well... ever, to shop, and I never thought I would. Learn something new every day.
I was the same way at one point, especially since I rather buy RLPL, theory, RL Polo, Loro Piana, etc...before GAP. But, I have found that for simpler, inexpensive and long lasting items (READ: Casual) nothing beats the GAP. They have a huge range of goods, and are all available in a full range of sizes. Plus, with the constant sales on both the stores and via the website, I don't think you can go wrong. Jon.
