I came across this Blog today (http://stylebubble.typepad.com/style_bubble/2007/05/if_you_are_a_tr.html) highlighting differences in offerings between the two...I tend to think many metropolitan areas of the US are less conservative than rural areas (generalizing a bit I know...)...and might just like the UK line a lot more...

& fwiw agree with the end of the post...

"It will still be interesting to see whether Gap's fortunes in Europe change for the better come fall and if Gap continue to go along the route of aiming higher fashion-wise, perhaps they should be more democratic and just offer it globally."

I tend to think too, there's alot more milage that can still be gained globally from the word & brand itself "GAP"...perhaps in offering a place (shop) to "fall-into" that offers affordable fashions/popular & classic styles from the world over...

Here's to hoping (though my hope for them is kindof on ice a bit these days) that somehow they can grab a bit of success with talent & offerings to get on a retail bull and ride sometime soon...else it will just be the others in this space continuing to gain our dollars & interest... :/

Cheers,
E
