I work at Gap,
There's different styles for you to choose from:
Standard Fit,
Low-Rise Boot Cut
Loose Fit
Easy Fit
Boot Cut (Discontinued)
Low-Rise Straight/Standard Fit
Slim-Straight Fit

The quality of the denim is actually pretty good compared to other ones. I find that R&Rs, TRs, and Those high-branded ones dont' really give you a run for you money in terms of quality. Its just the brand that makes things expensive.

Gap's denim usually run between 54.50 to 89.50 depending on the style and color you choose.

Most of the styles fit low-rise except for the Easy Fit., the rest fit just at the hip.

Let me give you a rundown of each style:

Standard Fit: Straight fitting through the legs and hip and stays straight towards the ankle. Its also known as "Straight Fit" cause all it fits is straight. Good for any type of shoe.

Loose Straight Fit: Similar to Standard Fit, It runs straight throughout the leg, but it fits a tad loose around the thighs and around the leg. Very comfortable as a lot of bigger guys love this comfy style.

Low-Rise Boot Cut: Slim around the thighs, fits a lil' lower around the waist, and has a boot opening at the bottom. A lot of tall and lankey guys love this style.

Low-Rise Straight Fit: Think of it like the Slim Straight fit, but rather it tapering towards the ankle, it has a wider, more straighter look around the leg, making your feet not so big. Works great with Converse, low profile shoes and Dress Shoes. This baby fits LOW. i love it!

Slim Straight Fit: This fits kinda of mid-rise, fits slim around the thighs and stays slim throughout the entire leg. Codename: Emo pants.

Easy Fit: Its very good for tall and big guys, its tapered towards the bottom of the leg while having a relaxed feel around the thighs. Around the width of a Loose Fit Straight around the leg.

They don't change a lot after warn for a while, as long as you wash it inside-out, and in cold water, and don't put it through the dryer, then yes, you'll love them for years.

I went to my local GAP and tried looking for the Slim-Straight, but they didn't have any.

=\

And I swear I saw whiskers in some jeans. Or maybe it was my lack of sleep causing me to see things.

I scooped some GAP raw + selvedged straights last year for $30. They never faded because I wasnt putting any effort into wearing them out but they were very rigid and they feel durable. Theyre not long enough for any stacking though.

i got a pair of morrisons and tapered them.
they faded in like seriously 4 months. but if you have an area that rubs against each other (crotch) it blows really fast. its basicly sand paper

I saw some skinny selvedge joints there yesterday for $78. Looked allllright. Didn't try them on because I can't do skinny but all the other jeans (even the slims) leg openings were massive.

i tried em on but i didnt take pics,lol

i tried low rise slim leg, a little bit of saggage, but not 2 much, and depending on what length size you get, slim all the way to the ankle unless you get a bigger size then your leg lenght you'll get some baggage at your shins, depending on how thick your legs are

The raw 08' Denims seems to be a bit tighter then the ones i bought in late 06'. I would say they took off about... 1/2 inches from side to side going across 1 side. Ima soak mine in cold water tonight and wear them wet to see if i can stretch these bad boys out a bit. Kinda snug. Quality is on point.

Morrisons are a mid-rise, straight-leg. If I remember it's like 11.5 inches in the thigh and a 8.25 in leg opening (size 32 that I haven't worn in a bit).

Gap Morrison. 10 months of practically everyday wear. 1 soak 1 wash. A little dissapointed but that's what I get for wearing a $20 pair of jeans for almost a year. A lot of memories...






I will have better pics with less shadows after the final wash.
