    Currently, what do people think of Brooks Brothers fit compared to J. Crew.

    I work part time at J. Crew and I've thought about jumping over to a Brooks Brothers store. I really love J. Crew but I'm not really getting any hours and there's a BB that's much closer and probably hiring part time. I like a lot of their clothing but I've never really worn it. I'll go try some on but I'm curious as to what others think. J. Crew slim fit pants and regular everything else fits me perfectly. Can I expect to basically find the same fits?

    Brooks Brothers is slightly higher end but I really only know what I've seen from them on the internet and not in real life.

    Wouldn't you want to work where you make the most money, not who offers the best fit? Plus if you do get a job at Brooks Brothers that is closer to you, you will save money on gas/travel.

    Retail pays shit so it's not / it won't be much money for either place. I really just do it for the discount and a little extra money.

    However, BB will be MUCH closer so I guess that will save me on time (I take the subway / train - I don't drive). I don't want to work somewhere that I don't really like wearing the clothing and I'll be trying some of their stuff on but I'm curious as to what others think about it.
