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.

holy fuck, hella company man.

BTW: I bought some Gap indigo raw denim in slim fit over in Manchester, England. I haven't found the same style here yet. Very nice, smooth, tight woven feeling denim. It was about 40 pounds over there, about $80 or so USD.

I've been wearing em since the summer, I played basketball with them in France, wore them all over Madrid, Amsterdam and London. Finally they're starting to fade. Im seeing light fade marks where my creases are. Geez, its been forever. Seems like they're not the best when you want to fade em. Then again, that might not be a bad thing.

They're not Morrisson's. Well at least it doesnt say so. Maybe it's the European version?

Here's the style #: 524275, Spring 08

Here's a vague picture of the fit when they were only about a few days old.. in London!

There were no Morrisons in the GAP we have in our mall here, and I've looked for them over the past few months whenever I'm at the mall. I ended up buying a pair with the 1969 tag, they're labeled as a low rise straight fit, and the style number is 54023. They're pretty nice and only $50. There was a sticker on them saying how they are dyed with indigo and how the color may transfer, etc. etc. I went true to size in the waist and got a 34 inseam.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

I copped a pair of rinsed selvage low rise straight jeans for 25 bucks after the holidays. I haven't worn them yet and I'm not really satisfied with the fit, but for the price I thought they were worth it.

I'm obviously new to the forums and to raw denim as well and I'm probably gonna just wear these or my older, 2 month worn, better-fitting pair of Gap jeans until I get my hands on a raw pair.

Here's some pics. Like I said, not the best fit in my opinion, but I don't mind a standard fitting pair of jeans; I actually like standard fitting jeans over tight ones, but these are just a little looser than what I prefer. Maybe if I soak them or something? Eh.

5'4", 29/30 jeans, what do you expect? Haha.
Jan 12, 2009 @ 08:55
Gup, take them into be tapered in the thighs and knee-down.
Jan 12, 2009 @ 20:21
do you guys do anything for these or just wear them?

i have a dark indigo pair, and they've stretched a bit now and i like the fit and they're starting to show the honeycombs and everything, but it's pretty soft denim and i think when i finally wash them for the first time they'll probably just wash out and not show up after the wash. are you guys using starch or anything to help preserve them, or do you just wear them and not worry about it??

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

i got a pair of gap slim straights a couple weeks back. i know if i soak them they will go to shit and i know they're going to stretch. but what the fuck they are soft and were only $30. thumbs up.

Here is my pair of Straight Fit selvage from a couple years ago, they are starting to fade and fit great. I wish Gap would make a raw straight fit that isn't lowrise these days. It seems that's all they make now...glad I have a few pairs of the regular straight fits. I'll post up more pics later with better lighting so the color is more true.

Jan 17, 2009 @ 20:28
damn, how tall are you??

Feb 18, 2009 @ 17:24

what does elevated straight fit mean?

Im guessing its a higher rise against your crotch / butt.

Hey guys, I'm thinking about getting a pair of selvage from gap but I need a little help. I wear a size 40 waist in standard fit so should I go with that in the selvage or should I size down. Also, is there a difference between elevated straight fit and elevated standard fit? The selvage comes in both fit types and I'm not sure if that would also make a difference in what size I get. Thanks for the help.
