Americans dress different from Brits, but do you find Canadians dress different?

Also, would you say, are the dressing styles in general different between parts of Canada, as they can be in the US?

In winter, the further north you go the more layers of clothes are worn!

I think this depends where you are. The best dressed province is most likely Quebec. I've noticed on average American's tend to be much worse dressed and much worse groomed then Canadians as a whole.

As with the States, it depends on where you are.

IMO, there's nothing like NY and Montreal, in terms of fashion.

When you get to the West Coast, I have seen absolutely no difference between the US and Canada. Of course, it depends on where you go, and who you are with, but in terms of "Americans being worse dressed and worse groomed" than Canadians as a whole, I'd say that's a load of bunk.

Hi Mish, In my post I basically said on average. Yes I agree 90% of the time the dress style is similar, but Ive seen certain areas of the US outside of the cities where people look like they have come out of dumpsters, Ive compared this to similar Canadian areas and havent found it to be the case.

I've found differently, obviously.

I had my first trip to Saskatchewan this past summer. It's the first time I've been out of major metropolitan areas in Canada. What struck me, most of all, was how *similar* where were were was to rural areas in the States. With the exception of signposts being in kmh (and the gorgeous flax and canola fields), I may as well been in the States. Dress, demeanor, pretty much the same.

I've seen many people, in the metro areas, who look like they have just rolled out of bed. Whether that's metro New York, LA, Vancouver...

I simply don't see any vast difference, generally, between the way people dress and present themselves between the two countries.

Toronto subway riders just wear shades of grey - particularly in winter. It's depressing. Every winter you see people wearing the same new Walmart or Zellers coat - at least 2 per car. Go Train riders have better threads & more diversity.

There are places like this in Canada as well. Trust me.

You can't even compare. Someone from Alabama would definitely dress differently than a New Yorker. Comparing entire countries don't make sense.
