Haha, im from MN and we have both in one mall aswell but I donno why I prefer AE.
Four Years? AWESOME!
I occasionally find something that I like at AE but I won't even go into AF any more because due to their pattern and practice of discriminatory behavior. Not to mention that they have repeatedly made racially offensive and sexist T-shirts. Their behavior has resulted in multiple lawsuits (the last one forcing them to pay out $40 million in damages) and multiple boycotts (where they often pull the offensive shirts when media pressure is applied - they made some really smug comments last time too, implying that Asians couldn't take a joke or something).
I don't know if this is what you meant when you asked the question and I don't want to touch off any kind of flaming war or anything but I figure if people can state that (as we often do on this board), that we don't buy fakes due to links to child labor, terrorism, and organized crime that it would be okay to say that I don't shop at AF due to links to racism.
i don't like AE b/c of the material/quality and design. not as good.
AF has gotten repetitive over time but i still love their boy tanks. it's a basic must and really good for layering.
i prefer AF over AE
