SAN FRANCISCO — A groom who ordered a tie and pocket square from Gap chain Banana Republic's website got something else instead:

The confidential files of about 20 former employees, including Social Security numbers and W4 tax forms.

``We totally laughed,'' said bride-to-be Emily Dreyfuss, 29, of Cambridge, Mass.

San Francisco-based Gap Inc. blamed the mix-up on a human mistake, because clothing and confidential information is sent out in the same gray bag, and the employee information appears to have been mislabeled.

Ironically, Dreyfuss said her fiancee recently received someone else's welcome packet from his new employer, with that employee's salary and Social Security number.
