Nearby I saw the Gap whites.... looked almost exactly like the AE jeans from a distance, but the denim is thicker.
I got the AE pair, since they were the only store at my mall that had white jeans (my GAP never has any of the nice stuff). I like the fit, I bought my APC size and they fit great, the denim quality is fine for me, I'm not going to be wearing them hard daily for 12 months. I removed the lame-ass arcutates. The only distressing is on the hems and is not noticeable. Fake whiskers fell out with a cold soak.
I'll post pics if I feel like it once they are hemmed.
