I had a pretty bad experience at BB on conn ave. Went in looking to figure out my size and wanted to try on a few jackets. I've found that at my height (5'9), just about every sales person tries to put me in a 38R. I decide to slip on a 38S before the salesman gets to me, and I ask what he thinks. He immediately goes to look at the tag! I step away, and ask him to judge it on how it looks, not what size he guesses it should be. Well, that obviously didn't go over well. Later, I still felt the 38 was running a little big on me, and he insisted that I not even try on a 36. I just don't understand why a salesperson wouldn't take the 2 minutes per jacket to let me compare ?!? It was almost like they took it an insult to their judgement. Of course, the short looked better than the regular, and I would have ended up with the wrong size.
