    Both are very preppy, colorful stores. American Eagle is a little more hippie or boho while Hollister is a bit more California/beachy style. AE has better quality and their sizes run randomly. (Sometimes 2 pairs of the same style/type of jean in the same size can fit completely different.) Hollister has a lot of thin, see-thru clothing and the sizes often run small. The actual stores are completely different. American Eagle is large and usually one big room. It has a lot of lighting and room to walk. Hollister is darker but a bit more interesting. They play loud music and expect you to walk through plants. American Eagle is cheaper: but not by much. A typical pair of AE jeans are around $50 while at Hollister, they run around $60. American Eagle offers coupons and sales, while Hollister only has sales that they keep towards the back. American Eagle usually has at least one ad in each teen magazine, while Hollister relies on just their bags, store, and merchandise for advertisement. AE seldom sells black clothing, while Hollister never produces black OR purple products. You can find many of the same styles of clothing at each store: tank tops, graphic tees, jeans, jean skirts, hoodies, flip flops, totes, and perfume. American Eagle offers an intimate line: called Aerie. They also have a "fit" line that isn't very well advertised. Hollister only offers body spray, apparal, and accessories for women and men.

    To decide your favorite clothing line, think of how you want to be viewed as. A preppy, practical dresser with a hippie style? Or a preppy, sacrificer (for the thin clothing and higher prices) with a beachy feel? If you can't make a decision with this information, try these online reviews of each store:

    American Eagle is so much better.

    everyone has shirts that say "hollister"

    and really what's so special about it.

    all the shirts are basically the same thing.

    don't get me wrong, i like hollister and i have a lot of clothes from there, but AE is so much better.

    they're stuff is actually kinda original and all their pieces differ.
