I've noticed a pretty big difference in fashion between Seattle and Vancouver when I traveled over there last month. It seems Vancouverites have more European flair to thier styles, compared to Seattle where the locals mainly dressed in grungier/plainer type of way and not as stylistic as Vancouverites. But Vancouver probally doesn't represent what Canadians dress like throughout the country.

Are Canadians more fashion concious than Americans on average?

I'd like to see a debate between you and the american poster we had a little while ago who was absolutely convinced "going out in sweatpants" was a typical canadian thing. i guess it's all perspective really?

So, you think Seattle is representative of the entire US? I suggest a trip to NYC, then cruise down to St Louis, then to Miami, and then over to LA. It'll "probally" change your mind.

I don't know if you can generalize Canada as a whole, but your comment is interesting since Vancouver is often stereotyped as a place where people aren't as fashion conscious as other cities.

Montrealers are definitely more fashion conscious.
Sweatpants? Outside? Only if you're painting the garage.
