New York is the third largest in population.

Are New Yorkers the worse dressed, absolutely not, but I will admit, I've seen some pretty slovenly people in NY, even in the City. Same with California.

Outside of poverty stricken areas where people really don't care or have a choice of what they wear, I would give worse dressed to the cornbelt suburbia.

There is a certain panache to Southern and Texan fashion. Its not what northerners are used to, but its not horrible.

Hey... we should at least be in the running for this award up here in Anchorage where Carhartts & sorel boots are worn to the symphony! We rock the world of fashion-less! And are darn proud of it. Where else can I run out to the grocery store in my longjohns!!??

Geographically speaking too.

You've got a point there. Every place is a mixed bag. Some people mentioned the South. Sure the rural areas and the ghetto areas have a lot of sloppy dressers, but people dress really nice to go to church (and they could be some of the same people that dress sloppy every other day of the week). In Atlanta, people in the business field dress nice for work, and less casual than in many other cities, but about equal to NYC, Tokyo, London, Paris, etc. In San Diego, I notice that people tend to dress like they are going to the beach, even to church or weddings, but there are areas and occasions of very fashionable people such as the Gaslamp on a weekend night or one of the upscale malls.

Interesting thread. I've seen some trashy dressing people in Florida. But to be fair, a GREAT portion of them were either tourist, transplants, or retirees. I already know, people are gonna try to convince me that most of them are natives. And to piggyback on what others said, the fashion people have is dependant on how the climate is in that area. Therefore you will see more flip-flops and shorts in places like Florida, Texas, California, Arizona, etc, etc. And I seriously doubt that the WHOLE state of NY dresses like everyone on 5th ave in Manhattan. I doubt everyone in that state is THAT wealthy.
