Probably a mix of the two, but my guess would be that a decent amount of them are the tourists. 26% of Miami's actual population lives below the poverty line, so I doubt those people are spending their money on this season's hottest trend.

Actually, you'd be surprised. Urban poor actually tend to spend a lot of whatever they get on fashion (if you're gonna be poor and/or live on subsistence, might as well look good). Latino culture is very concerned with appearance as it is, and with Miami being a vain city to begin with, I'd say Miami is in the running for best dressed city in the entire country, not just the South. The only thing holding Miami back is you can't really layer and wear fall/winter fashions.

It's not a wash between Houston and Atlanta. Again, Atlanta has a massive Market Center (AmericasMart) comprised of four buildings totaling 7 million sq feet. Fashion trends for a large portion of the Southeast spread out from Atlanta.

Many fashion trends for Houston come from Dallas' Market Center.

I am trying to think of where you might get a Southern vibe but all I can think is maybe extreme outskirts areas like Florida City, Loxahatchee.... Belle Glade, Clewiston, and Fort Pierce/PSL are trailer parkish/ white trash but they are far out of core South Florida metro. Davie used to have the reputation of redneck years ago but now it's filled with upper middle class suburban developments and expensive ranch homes with a more rural vibe ( for South Florida).. Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) lives out there. I just don't see much Southern culture in South Florida.. Even most of the poor white ( some might be seen as trashy) people that I know are originally from the NE and Midwest and not stereotypical racist southern white trash. I know there's the chilli cook off each year that has a redneck motif but that's about the extent I've seen in Broward/Palm Beach... Saying Miami Dade is Southern is laughable.

Yet I have contributed more to this thread than you have. Looks like you are the troll.

Again, are we ranking presence of brand names? Or how people actually dress in these cities?

I stand by what I said and no I don't find Houston to be as fashion forward or trendy.
What is your definition of fashion forward?

I want waste anymore time responding to you or anyone else about Miami being Southern or not.

Since Miami is not southern to you, what is the fashion capital of the south?

When did we disagree on anything?

Didn't realize I've ever had font with a Birmingham poster.

Anyway, good day.

Actually Houston is the most laid back in this regard. Houstonians don't flaunt their wealth like the other 3. There's no denying that.

How did I miss this post?

+1

Folk in Houston are just more laid back in general as I too have said before.

But they got money tho. More than Atlanta, Dallas, or Miami.
