We Inadvertently Wore A Pair Of Gap Jeans To The Indonesian Factory They Came From

Robert Smith and Jess Jiang were in Indonesia this week, following the path of the Planet Money T-shirt. As part of their reporting, they visited the Apac Inti denim plant.

Workers at the plant pointed at Jess' Jeans. They could tell the jeans were purchased at the Gap and, after inspecting the dye, declared the denim came from this very factory.
