Today James tweeted, "In almost 2 years of reading these blogs, [I] don't think I have seen anyone hype Banana Republic once. That cant be good..." He makes a great point and while I have mentioned BR every now and then through a highlighted product or two they really fail to get any blog love whatsoever - I would even surmise that I have seen more press for Old Navy. Many times I have checked out their website looking for cool stuff to share with you guys and have come away completely empty handed, even when BR debuted their own "heritage collection". You could make the argument that their suiting options are decent, but is it just the lesser of evils? I am in no means trying to be a hater (hell, I'm all about Gap), I'm just trying to get a handle on this whole thing.
Anyhow, I've obviously been thinking a lot about this today and this is what I have come up with: Banana Republic exists in a pseudo universe where all men are dressed by women. Seriously, browse the website and see if you disagree. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
[Editor's Note: Yes, I realize that Gap owns Banana Republic and Old Navy.]
