Oh my. There is no style down here in this rural community of NM. Everyone and I mean everyone wears old jeans (tapered legs), tee shirts, sweat shirts--ugh. Dressing up means wearing a western shirt maybe with native jewelry and a nice cowboy hat. I can't get used to it coming from a city where one dresses up to go grocery shopping.

Yep, I was in NYC over Christmas, and more pea coats and wool than nylon, for sure.

I've always worn a pea coat, but mine is actual Naval issue, not a "military-inspired" coat.

Even here in San Francisco (which does get surprisingly cold), the pea coats are still uber popular! My favorite coat happens to be a black wool pea coat, with two buttons around the chest - kind of flares out a little below the buttons, and stops right around my hips. Loves it.

Wool pea coats are always out in force in the winter, at least in the northeast. They are a classic.

Portland, Oregon. In Style - From the look of things it would appear dressing as a homeless person is in fashion here. Its difficult to tell who is homeless, since there are so many people dressed exactly the same. Dirty and Unkept looking.

Out of Style - Any outfit that would make one appear, as if they have gainful employment or have the ambition to look for employment. Basically any outfit that would give the signal, that the person takes pride in their appearance even if casually dressed. Very sloppy depressing looking styles and outfits in Portland, OR.

In other words I have heard of casual dress and that appeals to me, but this city is ridiculous for its outfits. Many dress as if they have worn the same clothes day after day. Im not sure if its to make a statement, since many of these poorly dressed people are covered in body art and piercings. Very strange population.

Leggings should be illegal! Regardless of its color, it makes women hella sexy, to the point that it drives me insane.

If I see a chick wearing leggings, I have to look the other way!

I am happy that over sized clothes is finally going away & clothes that fits are being worn more often. Its always interesting to see what people are wearing across the country. I live in the southeast region of the country. Im a fan of Real Hip Hop & Jazz....house music is becoming cool too.

I don't do popular, I do basic/classic.
Basic/Classic! I like that term....can you give us an example?

It's certainly true here. I'm glad pea coats are back - I love them! North Face has been gaining popularity for years. - nothing new about that.
