    I’m not so sure I agree with you about the looks from The Gap. Obviously Gap had its heyday in the 80s and that could likely serve as inspiration for a comeback, but those outfits look a little too 80s to me, and not in a good way. Besides, a cardigan over a cardigan over a t-shirt: who thought that was a good idea?

    There definitely could have been a woven thrown in the mix there, but I’m a fan of Patrick Robinson and I think the brand has turned a corner. But I hear you on the excessive use of knits.

    I might also have been influenced by the girl in the grey puffer. That’s how I want my girlfriend to look.

    The looks here are probably not completely representative of the change that’s (hopefully) to come with Patrick Robinson at the helm. I found that for years the Gap was guilty of some insane vanity sizing, for example, and cuts that were really only meant for professional couch potatoes. A little updating of classics, a little tinkering with shape and proportion, and a sensibility that extends just a bit past rumpled shirt and unflattering jeans will make a huge difference for the Gap, I think.

    Well, on a second look, I do agree with you on the girl on the gray puffer: not too bad. And I will say that I hope as much as you that Gap is able to turn the corner and start selling clothes that are worth buying again.
