When I was asked to run a feature on the new line of 1969 denim by Gap, I was skeptical. Let’s be honest here, the last time I sported a pair of Gap jeans was probably my 10th birthday party. Fast forward – package arrives, et voilà…a superbly fitting pair of jeans. I was in New York over the weekend (more pics to follow), but I thought I’d share a peak of my post for the 1969 Gap style stream website…
