Bellow Two Pocket Blazer – $59.99 vs. Zip Turtleneck Sweater – $69.50
Who laced the GAP design office water cooler with PCP? Usually a dependable, rock of consistency in the down to earth American style world, GAP currently has two… um… particularly unattractive pieces available for purchase.
Their Bellow two pocket blazer takes the worst design flaws of bulky cargo shorts, and slaps them on an ultra-wrinkled three button blazer. With an inexplicable flapped breast pocket. The Zip Turtleneck sweater is a total mystery. Why is the zipper running to the side like that? Why does the ribbing swap from vertical to dryer vent hose horizontal around the elbows? And how are you supposed to put this thing on? Do you pull this on over your head? Or is the zipper placement there for you to step through it unzipped and hike it up that way?
