hmph, well, I'll say that I dislike both with a burning passion. The clothes are fine, I do like the whole style, but the stores themselves I won't touch with a hundred foot pole. First off they are too expensive, especially Abercrombie. Why would I want to pay like 20-30 bucks for a teeshirt that will turn me into a walking bilboard? I do though like the shirts at both stores that are just nice shirts and dont say the brand name in huge letters, and the jeans are nice. I still won't go in the stores though also because if you are not the sterotypical 'look' of the preppy beachy person, they will give you looks. Mean looks..and not even just the employees, I've had a few shoppers give me looks too. And it's not even like I walked in there with Tripp pants and a bright pink mohawk or somehting, I was just in 'normal' clothes. If they took a shirt that looked exactly like a nice shirt at either store, made it reasonably priced, took of the little moose/bird and sold it at a department store or something, I'd be more than happy to buy it.
Um...I know this isn't an Abercrombie/Hollister bashing thread, and I do apologize. Anyways, the actual question, I like Hollister's clothes a bit better.
