In terms of...? Styling? Quality?
I've never really spent much time in either but even with just quick glances I've always considered the two worlds apart. BB has always had a particular style and branding associated with it. And while the style, fits, and fabrics may not always be my thing, I've always respected the brand for the most part.
JAB, there is no style or image - other than that of bad American businesswear. I think of it the same way as MW or the old C&R, or maybe low-end brands like Arrow or Van Heusen you might find at Mervyns, Kohls, JCP, etc.
