I have a pair of khakis that I bought at Wal Mart with the George label that are made better than Dockers at about half the price.

Armani for jeans/ pants. They are really flattering on me. I used to like Banana Republic for tops, but lately, all my new tops from there have been shrinking on me. I've about given up on them. I love how Anne Taylor tops fit though.

Of course, F21 is always a reliable fall back! Not the best quality, but cute and very cheap stuff!

I remember when I was young and very thin, and no matter what I put on, it looked good. What happened?

Ugh, thanks. I like Gap quality jeans--I bought a pair a few weeks ago. And I'm really wanting to get another pair, but I don't know how I feel about spending another $89.00 on a pair of jeans, since I'm still in between sizes. I'm going for a girls weekend out, this weekend and want to look nice, but I wanted jeans at a cheaper price until I get down to my usual size. I was so hoping that Gap Factory would have similar jeans.

If Gap Outlet is anything like Old Navy quality jeans, then I'll pass. Old Navy Jeans IMO have a very cheap feel to them and they happen to be in the cheaper price range(under $40). The max I want to spend for jeans right now is $50-$60 until I get to my regular size.

OK. The gap regular store seems to have changed a lot from what I remember it being like back in early 2000. I remember back then, the jeans seemed different and cost different, even the clothing seemed different. And after not shopping there since 2003, I went back to the store a few weeks ago and it seemed drastically different from what I remember when I used to shop there. The jeans were more expensive the shirts were more expensive but didn't seem worth it, and just seemed sort of bland. Still, I really liked the quality of jeans and was satisfied with the purchase. I'm going shopping at a premium outlet mall, so I may stop there just to take a lot.

I think the quality is somewhere between ON and regular Gap. But there are always at least a couple of pairs for under $40. "Regular price" is more like $60. For me, Gap jeans fit better than ON. ON jeans are both too low and have too much gapping. I tried on a pair the other day and there was literally 2 inches of a gap in the rear for me. The other ones I tried on barely covered my butt. ON jeans are not cut for figures like mine at all.

Gap jeans are way too expensive now. If you are between sizes, I'd just as soon go to Target or Forever 21 or Kohls and find some cheaper ones. Or wear a dress!

Gap is just like Target and Walmart. Their clothing is made in China or similar.

Okay then I'm going to try them on. I'm excited lol, I was afraid that they would be ON quality. Yeah ON jeans fit me crazy, like really crazy lol. And they just feel cheap to me. So an in "between" jean(between GAP and ON) will be suitable for right now, until I'm back in the size I need to be in.

I'm weird about Forever 21, like I like their shirts, they have nice clubbing dresses, and party dresses for cheap, but their jeans just fit me crazy too. I'm real particular about where I get my jeans. I've not shopped at Kohls or Target though. There is Levi outlet store that I might hit it up to seem how they fit.
