Fashion Walk of Fame

Los Angeles may have the Hollywood Walk of Fame but New York City has the Fashion Walk on Fame on 7th Avenue, also known as Fashion Avenue in the Garment District. To be honest, I didn't know about it until I came across this plaque on the street pavement between 38th and 39th Street last weekend.

Speaking of fashion, I just bought two new pairs of stress-free (i.e., wrinkle resistant) and stain-resistant khaki pants on GAP.com. I literally live in them because they require minimal ironing and retain the non-wrinkle look for days afterwards. Also, one day a kid on the bus accidentally spilled half a can of juice on my pants and it wiped off completely without staining or wetting the fabric. Ever since then [2005], I have bought all my khaki pants at GAP. But GAP discontinued the line recently and a salesperson at the store suggested search online. So I did and I found them ON SALE.

So where do you buy most of your clothes?

Disclaimer: I do not work for nor own stocks in GAP or its parent company.

Isn't that frustrating when you find a line of clothing that you love and it works perfectly for you, and then they discontinue it?!

Belinda said...

They sound like perfect pants for Nathan. PEEEERRRRRR-FECT!!

But I don't think we can buy stuff from Gap online here in Australia :o( Will check it out though.

j'aime bien cette partie de NYC, pour une raison, c'est pas loin de l'Hotel New Yorker, et les matins je vais prendre mon petit-dejeuner dans un magasin de la chaîne "metro" qui se trouve dans ce quartier.
Sinon, je suis pas mode du tout, je vais acheter mes vêtements chez décathlon.


I like this part of NYC, for a reason, it is not far from the Hotel New Yorker, and the mornings I will have my breakfast in a store of the chain “Metro” which is in this district.
If not, I am not mode of the whole, I will buy my clothing at decathlon.

Interesting post. I need pants like them. And T-shirts. Slobbering makes some of my shirts disgusting by the end of the day. LOL

Not really.

Pleated or straight ;-)

They do make sense, especially for you single guys - less washing and ironing...

I used to be a Macy's and Arden B slave...but now that I work at home and am covered i paint most times, I tend to be more Target oriented...

Love the fashion walk of fame!!!!!!!!

Halston was one of the greats indeed.

Halston is amazingly sexy, I can't believe that mogul dude is going to revive the brand, I am a bit scared about whether it will be a complete flop.

I don't read Japanese, I just have a bad addiction to Japanese fashion mags, because I love the imagery used in them. Vogue Nippon, Spur, Nylon, RT, So-En, Vingtaine, I pretty much get them all, I try to buy the used issues from Book-Off.

The Fiance buys his clothes at Van Heusen - strangely enough, I've only seen it at outlet malls. I swear, when it rains, the water BEADS UP on his shirts and pants!! Everything is wrinkle and stain resistant. Soo low maintenance...

Annie said...

I think Halston has an Arkansas connection. Seems like I heard that once - maybe his sister lives here, maybe he lived here as a child. I can't seem to remember but then that's not unusual.

Uhm my personal "couturier" is Giorgio Armani, who if not? ^-^

Peter said...

I have also been a rather regular GAP client, but I don't think I ever found "your" pants. Anyhow, now it seems to be too late.

tigerfish said...

I do not buy my clothes online coz' I'm worried they can't fit and I can't touch and feel the fabrics too. But for your case, you already know all the details of what you wanted.
I think Dockers has a range of stain-resistant product line too.

Jilly said...

I live in Gap cargos. Men's 28/28 fit me perfectly yet I can't buy on line and get delivered to France. I can't even pay online and get them delivered to my friend in Ohio, who would then post them to me. I think this is crazy. So she has to order and pay for them for me.

I love Gap clothes - well certainly the men's pants.

Keropok Man said...

Hmmm maybe I should try GAP once. haha..

Dockers have wrinkle free and stain free too. I love those stain free stuff, those oops moment just make it so so worth it.

Also the stain free = water resistant, good when it's raining! :-)

Lavenderlady said...

that has happened to me before...but rarely do I then find them somewhere else. It is so nice to find something that really fits.

Z said...

I think I need to get pants from this line you mention. I have a dress shirt from Brooks Brothers that is supposed to be low maintenance, and it is, though I haven't put it through quite the tests that you have with your khakis! Shopping tips from a daily city blog, imagine! :-)

TCho said...

ugh. i used to be a barney's whore, and cringe at how much money i've spent there.

these days, i have plenty of dress/work clothes. I usually just buy tshirts now or athletic garb.
