I've read opinions on both and I don't believe they typically get compared head-to-head given the wide discrepancy in pricing. End of season sales though change that. Are the two comparable head-to-head? Just looking at some basic wool flannel dress pants. I definitely appreciate the small touches that HY illustrates in the product photography. I've visited the local BB once, and only to look at the trench coats, so I don't know if the tailoring is comparable or not. I know price is a weak indicator of quality.
