I'm wearing a GAP polar at the moment but I'm not sure if it was from a GAP shop here in Poland. The best bet for GAP stuff is in 2nd hand shops. My friend also picked up some stuff when he was here a couple of years back. There is sure to be a GAP shop in Kraków or Warsaw

There used to be a Gap shop in Warsaw but it got shut down when Gap's lawyers found out about it. Yes it was selling Gap clothing but it apparently didn't have the permission it needed from Gap to do so.

look into GAP's treatment of their labour- after reading up on it I decided to NEVER buy anything connected with GAP, Old Navy or Banana Republic. Those sneaky c*nts even found a way to not honour that Employees Rights bill they drew up.

If I am not abreast on the latest development then someone please correct me, but until I hear otherwise i can only encourage others to BOYCOTT GAP. They profit far too much and treat their employees as virtual slaves. It's just sad.

And their clothes are produced cheaply too. I never pay much for clothes these days, true to my Scottish roots. If u take ur time, u can always hunt down bargains

True. They had a series of great colourful all singingall dancing adverts a while back in the UK and Ithink that helped their market share. It reminds me of a material version of Dulux paint. Like plain t-shirt any colour. Crew neck jumper, plain any colour...etc.... Design and innovation seems lacking, however you can have it in any colour...yawn.

Then theres French Connection aka FCUK. At first it seemed a clever marketing twist a defining Puff Daddy to P-Diddy momment. Unfortunatey the public soon got tired of walking around with an anagram of **** on their clothing. Which left Benetton holding up the torch ahead of its two rival.

Poland has absorbed lables/brands which are not perceived as popular in the UK.
Betty Barclay, Jane Norman, M&S(although currently gaining ground), C&A. Though topsellers like H&M have entered the market and this is livening up the market.

I agree with this, they have unethical work policies and employ cheap labour from Central America.. of course they arent the only ones... but at least the others such as Primark reflect this in the cheap prices. In my opinion, GAP is not only unethical, but offers unoriginal clothing at inflated prices for the quality.

Obviously you wear your own made hessian underwear, dear.

sapphire wins the "Foreigner4 gets drunk and makes a toast to you this evening" award for contributions to ethical consumerism and being able to spot bland fashion. Now F4 must go and make good on his awarding of the award.

If theres one brand I really hate its DONNAY what a pile of crap, i bought 20 Donnay golf balls once on the cheap and couldn't hit a straight drive all day.

GAP is right behind Donnay.

kids should not have "fashion" as a concern in their lives.
Boycott GAP
