I'm not complaining. The GAP is as close as I can get to a Michael Bastian shirt. Actually, that's not even true as none of the GAP stores in my area (actually: state) will be carrying the men's shirts. I agree that the western is kinda yuck, and I think the button sleeve shirt is somewhat interesting. The quote is just a little bit over the top though. Proud? Really? I'm not sure how these design collections work, but I imagine he was either (a) forced into this through some contractual obligation or (b) lured to it by a pile of money. Or maybe he is just really honored to have his clothing sold in local malls throughout the US.
