The NY Observer has an article on their website about The Gap. The writer claims that the 'Gap is back.' I recommend you take a look. The article is singularly focused on female clothing, however, and I felt like I had no choice but to post a comment concerning the male side of things.
I had to give my contact information and I am very surprised I haven't heard back from anyone at The Observer. I was expecting to be offered a staff position as Pants Writer. Oh well, I'm sure they're just trying to figure out how much money to offer me (100k a year? 200? 300?)
