Since young I've always thought of GAP as one of the more trendy brands in Singapore. However, the prices here are much more expensive as compared to the shops in the states. While the prices make me a little hesitant to purchase anything, the clothes are always gorgeous.

Ever since then, I've had quite a hefty collection of GAP items (not leaving out the items that I bought from GAP in America to add on to my collection). The materials used for the clothing are usually of a high quality - the Tee shirts that I've bought from GAP are all in good condition ever after wash, they did not stretch out. The bermudas which I own from GAP also fits me perfectly and in women's size 00, where else can I find such a small size?

My all time favourite would be my collection of GAP hoodies - which GAP seems to have unfortunately stopped producing. The newer collection of GAP hoodies have a thinner lining unlike the first GAP hoodie that I bought. It is a comfortable item and keeps me warm even on my coldest days in the air con in Singapore.

Gap is a well known international clothing label. I have never personally bought anything from its store, maybe because it's NOT cheap. I will probably have to set my empty wallet on fire if I were to buy anything there!

I was fortunate enough to receive a soft, woolly GAP scarf for my birthday a few years ago. If it's not for a few overseas trip to cold countries, I think the scarf will be sitting in my closet, collecting dust. The scarf is of high quality and had lasted me throughout the few years I owned it. It is made out of wool, which was surprisingly not itchy unlike the cheaper versions of it.

Overall, although I owned only one clothing item from their entire label, I might consider purchasing more in the future, possibly during the sale period.

I think there can be no doubt about the fact that GAP does produce quality clothing. Their stuff is definitely not low-grade and I can attest to the fact that their clothes are long-lasting and comfortable. The only problem that I have with them, especially in Singapore, is that they are quite overpriced. Perhaps that is why the outlets are never too crowded except when they are having mega sales. Even with the good quality, I still will not be willing to pay and it looks like y sentiments are echoed by fellow Singaporeans.

If you are really itching to get some GAP for yourself, perhaps you could try purchasing online and searching for discount codes to make it more affordable. I think Malaysia is a good place to get them, they are cheaper than their Singaporean counterparts. The outlet that I visited in Edinburgh, UK was also surprisingly cheaper than Singapore. That's why I strongly discourage getting GAP in Singapore: just way too overpriced for my liking and much better deals can be found easily elsewhere.

I have no idea why Gap is considered such a popular brand. Most of the clothes I've seen in their stores are really basic items, such as classic jeans, shirts, and cardigans. Granted, sometimes they come in brilliant eye-popping colours that would surely help you stand out in a crowd, such as a hot pink hoodie I got, but the designs themselves are often unremarkable, and nothing unique.

In my opinion, the clothes I've bought are really comfortable but their quality is just so-so, and doesn't quite justify the relatively steep price tags.

Overall, it's rather unimpressive and doesn't seem worth the prices.

Basics

I remember the time when wearing a Gap tee or hoodie was in trend and I can only cringe. Gap to me is akin to Uniqlo — essential styles (basic pants, cardigans and shirts) in an array of colours that are updated every season according to the latest trends. More recently, they have introduced adverts that are trendier and appealing, but as always I am disappointed when I actually shop for the specific items myself. It’s not Gap’s fault, it’s just that it is not my cup of tea after all.

However, if you are looking for quality basics, look no further.

Gap is another store that sells trendy, and into style apparel. The clothes that are sold here are mainly for casual wear, and work wear.

Personally, I never shop much at Gap, because as a student, I find the prices a little too steep for me, and could probably find similar items for cheaper at other shops. However, I like going into the shop to browse through the range of clothing available every season.

I accompanied my friend to get jeans from here one day, and whilst she was in the changing room, I, myself took the time to try on a pair as well. The pair that I tried on was one of the most comfortable jeans I've ever worn.

Unfortunately, because of the price, I did not buy it. I will certainly patronize this store when I have the means to, in the future,
