So, I bought three black shirts from The Gap, intending them for my twenty pieces, and so far, two of the hems have unraveled on the bottom and one got a hole in a shoulder seam after just three wears. I can fix it pretty easily, but I’m annoyed. With a sticker price of 20 bucks for a black cotton t-shirt, seems like the seams should be able to stick together for a few months, let alone weeks. My new pencil skirt also unraveled at the seam. Again, easy to fix, annoyed that I have to.
Have you guys seen Crazy, Stupid Love? I hadn’t until last night, but there’s a pretty great man-makeover scene in which one character tells the other two bits of advice about updating his look: He can be completely well dressed with only 16 key pieces, and he needs to consider himself too good for certain retailers. “Be better than The Gap, Cal.”
I’m starting to agree with both.
