PG believes in stylish frugality: you need not spend a ton of money in order to look good. Which is why most of the items highlighted in the posts are reasonably priced. The idea is that after reading the posts, any guy can walk into just about any mall in the US and find something that looks good.
Gap hasn’t lately been on the forefront of great style or quality, but there are signs that it is righting the ship. They’ve begun paying closer attention to their quality of denim and forging important designer collaborations.
PG uses Gap as a starter drug for those beginning their ascent into style consciousness, because it’s still a great place to get some quality basics at a decent price (especially when they’re having their sales), provided you know what to look for.
Which is why I wanted to alert you to the fact that Gap is having a pretty good sale on their denim – $20 off their “1969” line of denim.
A note: if you haven’t bought a pair of Gap jeans in a long time (or ever) it may be a good idea to purchase in store as opposed to online. My first pair of jeans from Gap were a pair highlighted in the Fit Guide to pants that had a wash that was very different from that of online. The bottom line is that with a value priced item, you’re sacrificing workmanship and quality (usually), so it pays to try it on to find the exact jean that fits you, even if the measurements are the same.
Here are some that are PG-approved.
A good dark jean. Just don’t roll the cuffs.
I’ve posted these jeans before. Beware, the wash may not be as cool as it is online.
A good, casual boot-cut jean.
Dark rinses are good. They’re more modern, are slimming, and can be dressed up very easily.
