Gap’s Khaki CFDA Collection Now Available (For Skinny Girls Only)!

  • Pin it

While every summer or pre summer magazine out there is piling up on slimming wonder-recipe and workout secrets to slim you down for the beach, Gap seems to be picking up that trend too!

Their long awaited Khaki Collection signed by CFDA nominees (Vena Cava, Alexander Wang and others) is only meant for those who already toned to their beach body. Khaki by Gap comes in mini sizes: up to size 10 (that’s size 14 for the U.K). While the Catwalk is targeted for sizing up, high street fashion takes the zero size side? (Gap via Jezebel)

That would be a 36 here according to the list I have. So who’s gonna buy this? Tiny teens? Don’t they need profits?
It’s hard to find a reliable international size-chart. A 36 is in the Netherlands for skinnies. I’ve 36/38 and of course I prefer 38.
Why isn’t there an universal system for clothing sizes? Even in Europe countries has sizes.

Gap sizes are all out of whack anyway, they’re huge! I am 2, sometimes 3 sizes smaller than my usual size at the Gap. They keep making the sizes bigger to make people feel better about themselves.

So i suppose you can consider that their size 10 is actually a 14 and that technically, they’re actually depriving small people.

I wish Thailand has Gap. I love this collection.

*Even in Europe countries has different sizes*

My size is an Italian and French 38/40 (I’m Dutch). So I assume the Italians and French fool themselves? They’re not that slim as fashion magazines made us believe. Especially not the Italians. Yeah, Paris, Milan and certain places. Not the average population.

I have no say in regards to the sizing of things as I have no idea who dictates such stuff. But I will say is this I do like this collection. Its cute.

If my memory serves me (and things haven’t changed in the last 2-3 years), it’s not the store who makes the sizes. It’s an official statement based on official sizing campaigns on volunteers. The relevant echantillons of people dictate how sizes move up or down the scale. I know that changes were on the way 3 years ago when they wanted to move up the sizes (not on paper!) because real life people changed their constitution and larger was the new reference.

I had a good size-history chez Gap but I still believe that once you found a fitting tailoring, you should stick to it. So many stores I don’t go to because I know no matter the size, nothing there really fits my constitution.

..oh, those Gap khaki shorts…
