Are you white and do you shop at the GAP?

I've been in the Gap a few times and bought a couple of things. There are always Asians in there. Then again, in Seattle, there are always Asians everywhere.

When I was in college and got an employee discount I shopped at the GAP. When they fired me three weeks later, I stopped shopping there.

One time I needed a bunch of polo shirts in a hurry for a vacation so I went to the Gap and just bought like 10 polos of different colors. That was the only and last time that I shopped at the Gap, but I don't "shop at the Gap."

Only thing I get from there are cheap wool sweaters, and only on discounts. So, I don't really "shop the Gap"

Not white, shop all the time at the Gap for my 7 year old's clothes as I find their childrens clothes to be of much better quality than their competitors.

I also shop there for myself, mostly for very casual wear like cargo shorts, v-neck tees and these wonderful ankle length athletic socks which "breathe". I feel no shame in shopping there.

They are good for basics. I have their tees, and causal pants, and jeans. They are relatively inexpensive when on sale, and have a great return policy. I oftentimes will wear a RLPL cashmere sweater with a GAP tee underneath. And honestly, they sell the best boxer shorts I have ever bought. Sartorially unimaginative is relative, you have to know how to pair things together well. Jon.

Please bless us with pics of your sartorial imaginativeness


Specifically, pics of your "basics" outfits, which is what most people use the gap for.

I get their wool scarves on sale for around $2-$4 at the end of winter sale.

Look at it this way, if there is something I need that I can get cheaply at Gap/Express/Old Navy/BR/Guess/et.c. I will do it. Yes, I am a filthy whore but hey, works for me


P.s. I just put myself on white as I am obviously not asian or black and will be too complex to explain someone Eurasian (sort of).
