I disagree. Pittsburgh went from overwhelmingly blue-collar to overwhelmingly white-collar in 30 years. (I'm talking about actual jobs and employment, not the "vibe.")

Pittsburgh seems blue collar to me. As far as actual jobs, well the new working class is mostly in service sector employment, so just because there are fewer steelworkers or whatever, there are still as many working class people.


These three cities I am unsure of how to categorize:
Kansas City, MO
Portland, OR
Phoenix, AZ

I try to stick to white collars and sometimes blue collars for work, but for going out i wear black shirts with black collars very often. I have striped collars on my striped shirts, too.

But definitely it's mixed where i live, with all colors of collars.
