    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Never tried on the 484 chino's before, are they similar to the davis chino's from Club Monaco?

    I find the 484 to be a bit slimmer in the waist and more tapered at the leg. I recently tried on the Davis and did not find their cut to be especially slim; in fact, from the knee down I found them boxy

    I find the Davis to be pretty much perfect. Not extremely slim. It's slim to me but not extremely slim like how folks like it. I'll try out the 484 for the hell of it.

    Signed up for and was approved for J Crew's Credit Card yesterday.

    $25 gift card for every $500 you spend (not including taxes, fees, etc) and special 30% off sales more frequently throughout the year at no annual fee? Sounds good to me. [​IMG]

    The only catch you should be aware of is that points expire after one year.

    Dude, my J.Crew tells me this too. "Oh, yeah, the Urban Slim is the same fit as the 484." No, it's not. I don't know why they say that.

    I still wish the 484 tapered about a quarter inch more. The way the ankle is distressed on the sun-faded chinos makes them flare just a bit more than I'd like. Actually prefer Gap's Lived-in Slim.

    A tailor could fix that taper for you for probably $10 or so.

    Agree on Gap's lived-in slim being as good or better than 484 washed. And at half the price (not counting the costs borne by Bangladeshi garment industry workers), even cheaper on sale. $40 + 30% off = $28. Ends today.

    yeah, wish I had read the following before placing my recent Gap order: turns out they're pretty despicable, actually...

    Consumer and labor groups have focused more on persuading Gap rather than Walmart to join the Bangladesh factory safety plan. Gap has been the most vocal company in criticizing the plan, expressing concerns that overly litigious American lawyers could seize on the agreement to sue American companies on behalf of aggrieved factory workers in Bangladesh. Gap’s proposed changes would greatly limit any legal liability for any company that violated the plans. [...]
    Under Gap’s proposal, if a retailer is found to have violated the agreement, the only remedy would be public expulsion from the factory safety plan. [...]
    The labor unions and advocacy groups that have negotiated with H&M; Inditex, the Spanish company that owns the Zara chain; and other companies that have signed the plan criticized Gap’s proposal to change the agreement. These groups say Gap’s vigorous push against the version of the plan has helped sway some other American companies not to sign.
    “Gap Inc. is ready to sign on today with a modification to a single area — how disputes are resolved,” said Scott Nova, executive director of the Worker Rights Consortium, a group sponsored by 175 colleges and universities. “Gap’s demand is that the agreement be made unenforceable — and therefore meaningless. What Gap wants is the right to renege on its commitments when it wishes.”
