I agree that neither is very good, but if pushed, I would recommend JAB. They have a better selection, and probably a little better quality. I am also annoyed at Men's Wearhouse television ads...that alone would be enough to keep me from purchasing from them. I have purchased one suit from Men's Wearhouse...complete garbage, but at the time I needed a suit immediately (weight loss issues) and felt I had no choice. I wore that suit once and threw it out. I have purchased, and continue to purchase, trousers from JAB. I am very hard on pants, and when you can pick up flannels at $39.00 on sale, that seems like reasonable value to me. If they last for a year or so I feel I've gotten my money's worth. My sport coats and suits are custom made by my tailor in Atlanta. I purchase the fabric from the best mills in England, and he provides the labor to craft the garment. Of course, my $39.00 JAB trousers can't hold a candle to my tailor made suit trousers...but then again, I didn't pay $400.00 for the trousers at JAB.
