New gap denim - Page 38

post #556 of 1607
Not signficantly/noticably, if at all. Washed denim doesn't fade, generally. The process takes care of all the excess indigo, for the most part.

I used to buy Gap way back in the day when my friend was working there... it seems like i remember them always stretching out at least a size bigger pretty quickly. Are they still that way? I do dig some of the washes i see on here... i havent looked at gap in quite some time.

I've been wanting to get some straight leg type jeans to wear with boots, maybe these would be a good lower cost alternative for experimentation :P

Why don't they give the actual full-on measurements on the website?

Because the Gap customer would have no idea what to do with that information.

The ones I bought today that I posted were just too good of a fit to not buy.

The 514's I literally just bought last month and look exactly like the Gap Dark Rinse Selvedge.


*sigh*

Why? It seems like I bought the exact same thing from the store
post #563 of 1607
the ones on the site are a dark wash, or 'rinse'. the raw ones are listed as 'rigid'.

My advice would be to size down between one and two sizes. I just bought a pair of authentic fits in 29 about a month ago, and kinda regreted not getting a 28 instead. I was scared off by slight difficulty buttoning the top button. Not that any of that matters anymore, now that I have my NS.

Also there is a fall Chambray popover for flagships as well as a denim shirt with USN pockets exclusive to flagships.

I'll have to go check out the Michigan Ave store one of these days, sounds promising.

I was able to get a full run down of the selvage line if anyone is interested.


Authentic Fit
(non buckle back)

5 washes:

Rigid (raw)
Rinse (one wash)
Pale Blue (basically a Junya type wash, very light blue)
Rustic Wash (medium blue with brown weft and destruction)
Crunch Tint ( A PRPS look medium wash, medium to light lots of brown in the wash)


Authentic Fit
(Buckle Back)

2 Washes:

Rigid (raw)
Mechanic (similar to the crunch tint but just slight destruction and no brown weft.)


Standard Fit


Rigid (raw)
Rinse (one wash)


Straight Fit

Rigid (raw)
Rinse (one wash)


Loose Fit


Rigid (raw)


Skinny Fit

Rigid (Raw)



I put hands on the rigids this weekend. The Rigids are the hardest raw denim I have seen Gap produce in my tenure with the company. Far stiffer than my Gough or last years rigid skinny. I expect these to wear better than Gap's prior raw offerings.

So the loose selvage are coming out or are they out already? That sounds great if I could get my hands on those.

got my skinnies today, like the fit better than the uniqlo japanese slim selvages. surprisingly, the new gap flannels fit me well too.

thanks to sazon for the coupon! what a guy.

Just bought a pair of these http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do...scid=675329002 (authentic fit in dark rinse selvage). I really like the look and fit now, so I don't want them to expand, shrink, or (especially) fade.

I looked through the thread, but I can't tell exactly what to do. Should I follow what the tag says and wash them once in cold water before wearing? I do notice that some indigo off on my hand if I rub the denim for several seconds? Should I use mild soap, or none at all? Should I just wear them unwashed, and risk a little bit of blue staining?

Are the Authentic and Standard fit in Rigid (raw) available in most stores now? I haven't been by a store in the last few weeks but would like to get my hands on a pair of these.

I dont't think *most* stores have these. I've seen them in the bigger stores in NYC, but the smaller stores in NYC and NJ don't have them...if that helps at all.
