gap shearling.

The Gap friends and family weekend just ended, but not before i scooped up this killer shearling denim jacket.

The jacket is still available, and gap is always having deals, so it's not too late to find one for yourself for fall.

gap elongated essential tee.

elongated tees are definitely trending hot right now, but the main issue is that you only have two options to pick one up:


  1. get a cheap-o at H&M or Cotton ON (with a logo), or some similar store
  2. spend way too much on a dang tee shirt for a F.O.G. or other limited-run type brand


Both of these options kind of suck if you're really just buying a tee shirt. Enter option 3:

The Gap Essential tee in "tall" sizes. This isn't necessarily designed as an elongated tee, which is why you're able to get away with grabbing a quality shirt in the fit you want for such a reasonable price. 

yes, I'm aware that the shirts in these pictures are not elongated in any way, and that's because the "tall" versions of these shirts are designed to fit normally on a person with a torso that is severely disproportionate to the rest of his/her body. So trust that a "tall" fit on a normal person will give the elongated look.

Gap quality on a trending fit; money.

Click here to see them in the Gap store, and make sure you're using the "tall" tab.

gap x GQ round 4.

This is the fourth year in a row that gap has joined forces with the winners of gq's 'best new menswear designers in america' contest to launch an exclusive line for a limited time. and honestly, i think this is the best line so far. the featured designers this go 'round are


  • the hill-side
  • david hart
  • nsf
  • stampd


take a look at these previews for each designer:

Not every Gap store will have these items; not every Gap store that carries these items will have them all; and the ones that do will sell out right quick, so act fast.

Gap's granddad.

No, I'm not referring to the grandfather of somebody named "Gap". nor is it the early versions of Gap Inc.'s humble beginnings in 1969 which sold Levi's, records, and tapes (like a less gross Hot Topic). 

No no, I am referring, of course, to Gap's embracing of the granddad collar--also known as the mandarin collar, the drop collar, or (as Gap has named it) the "banded shirt".

Gap has released four versions of this shirt, all of which are actually really cool. So cool, in fact, that I bought two for myself and one for my dad. Now before I show you these shirts, let me frist preface by saying that the pictures really don't do them justice at all. The models really don't do a very good job embracing the vibe of these shirts, and the photos themselves make them feel starchy, stiff, and awkward. They fall into the "lived in" line of Gap shirts, which means they're soft, and not meant to look folded and ironed (with the exception of the blue white collar, which should look a little more formal). 

What I'm saying is you really need to go see them for yourself and try them on cause they dope. 

I really recommend trying them on in person. You'll thank me later. 

In the meantime, check them out on the Gap website

Gap x GQ.

Gap Inc. is the largest american clothing retailer and third largest in the world. The company is comprised of several brands, including Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta, Intermix, and Piperlime. While the Gap brand has always focused on classic, american style, they've recenly collaborated with gq and the winners of gq's best new menswear designers in america. this is the third year this collaboration has taken place, and this year it's yielded, by far, the best results.

here's a look at my favorite pieces from the 4 collections from the 4 designers:




john elliott + co



Brooklyn Tailors



En noir



visit Gap's website for item details and purchase, or stop by select stores to see them in person and try them on. Since these collections are still in the process of being released, not all of the pieces are available for purchase yet. But be patient my young padawans, your time will come.

back to school on a budget.

With the new school season about to start, you've definitely thought about improving your wardrobe a bit to kick the semester off the right way. Now if you're anything like me, you've thought about doing so while spending as little money as possible. The good news is this task can be accomplished with just a little bit of searching. For example, check out this basic back-to-school outfit I was able to put together for $100.

Levi's 511 Slim Fit jeans - rigid dragon -   $58.00   $48.00 click here.

Gap Inc. horizontal stripe modern oxford -   $39.95   $23.99   click here.

UO skull icon sock -   $8.00   $5.99   click here.

UO CVO sneaker -   $29.00   click here.

At this point, there really aren't any excuses to look anything less than dapper on your first day of the semester. Do you homework, find new threads, and have a great semester.
