screaming softness

I know I have a taste for the dressed-up and exuberant, but reality is, I don't roam fashion-indifferent Boston everyday in full fashion week regalia. Most days, I like to wear quality basics: spare, look-at-the-person instead of look-at-the-outfit clothes that are comfortable, but classy. The only thing screaming in my getup would be the incredible softness of the fabrics I'm wearing. (And maybe the forty carats of plastic on my pointer finger!) I was pleased to find three additions to my daily rotations in the mail, and was very impressed that they were from the Gap!

gray double-layered sleeveless t-shirt, blue "best crewneck", and burnout deep v-neck t in cast iron, all from the Gap

The two grays are made out of the au courant supersoft sheer jersey, quite reminiscent of the T by Alexander Wang line. The detailing is quite interesting, too. I'm very fond of the curved hems and the contrast white stitching. The Gap, really! Who would have thought?

I've noticed that the Gap has been creeping up in quality too! Very surprising. They also opened this strange sort of quasi-high end retail shop, which I assume to be some kind of test prototype store, on Robertson Blvd in my backyard: Quoi?

Your articles are very inspiring and I like your strive for individuality, it should be the way everybody should look at clothes. Individuality that is, not replicating your style.
