    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    The results are in: A&F and AE, with a trip to Hollister.

    Those are all good choices for that age group. Good luck!

    Just in case you are still wondering . . .those are all stores who only carry their own brand and those brands can only be found in those stores. A&F and Hollister are both owned by the same company. A&F is a little pricier, but the styles (California beach?) are pretty similar. AE is perhaps a little "Peppier," but that may have changed since the last time I was in there.

    Again, good luck, and enjoy the adventure!

    You missed the point j. I asked this crowd if they had awareness of current teen trends, because I believe this crowd is younger than me, and less far removed. My son mentioned Hollister, for example, which I had never even heard of. I didn't know if it was a store, or a brand carried in other stores.

    He'll know what he wants when he sees it. I just needed to know where to drive the car. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the help all.

    I would advise you buying your son Hollister instead of A&F. A&F created the brand Hollister because the targeted demographics (college kids) were upset their younger (jr and high school) siblings were wearing the A&F brand. Hollister was created to give the younger kids something to wear. I know, anyone can wear anything you want, but even if you say "screw target demographics", I think Hollister clothes are cheaper. Also, go for AE too.

    Thanks guys. Helpful. I'm not real price sensitive (but he's not getting $200-$1,000 jeans). What's the current concept? Buy dark jeans, never wash them, and watch them fade? Heck - maybe I'll even buy a pair. To me denim was always denim. Without being real jeans-fashion conscious, what is one looking for in general? (If someone can point me to a "primer" thread, I'll read that. Most of this forum is way over my head) Thanks again.
    Up here in Canada, American Eagle has one low-rise straight fit that is in a dark 'one-rinse' raw wash. The fit looks pretty nice. I've been wanting to get a pair for myself, but my local AE doesn't have my size [​IMG]
