i went into a Gap yesterday for the first time in ages (was waiting for dinner). Boy. talk about last year's trends, or more accurately, trends that were about a year old last year. I mean, a bright, striped shirt is the new "must have" for this summer? Really?) I tried on the regular bootcut, and boy, those things are sized big. A 32 was really pretty baggy on me, and a 31 only slightly less so. I low rise bootcut I wore a 31 in. For reference, I wear a 33 in Seven Bootcuts and Paper Denim GTOs, and a 32 in the Paper Denim LTDs (which are still a little loose on me, but comfortable.) The GAP really does gear their products towards a ridiculously obese demographic, doesn't it?

I guess the same can be said for many other american brands......even foreign brands accommodate the more obese people in America by changing their cuts. If you look at automobile, similar trend occurs. Smaller interior and a tighter suspension for the Euro market; More roomy and softly sprung for N.A. --the Honda Accord(Euro vs N.A. one) is such an example.


Btw, I am not in any way obese, but regular fit jeans always feel a bit tight for me. I guess if you were tall and play sports that require explosive movement, your thighs and butt are bigger. Mine measures about 24 inches at the widest point ....and with a 31/32 inch waist guess maybe I should give GAP jeans a look---too bad Gap/BR/OldNavy stores just closed down again in Hong Kong when the retail industry is suppose to be picking up there.

The European Honda Accord is the same as the Acura TSX, actually, just luxury'd up a little. I found that interesting myself, I much preferred the European/Japanese Accord and it surprised me that they wouldn't bring such a decent design to America. but I digress...
