Banana Republic & Gap

Walking around Harlem, after having gone to a great gospel, I saw the Gap Factory in front of Banana Republic factory Store. Both of them are the same American multinational corporation. The original tourist-oriented items from Banana republic were replaced with more luxurious items when Gap Inc. acquired the brand in 1983.

The brand is clearly focused for workers with a good standard of living.

Luckily, I went one of the days of the clearance sale so I could buy things at a low price. One coat was worth 90$ as original price and I buy it for 32$. It was a completely bargain.


Here I add some pictures from the shops of both brands and also photographs of what I bough. Hope you like it!
