Yes, people in So Cal wear all of the above when it's cool/cold. It's not uncommon to grab a sweater or light jacket when going out in the evening in the summer months. The breeze from the Pacific starts coming in around 4:30 pm and temperatures drop.

And rich kids in L.A. wear flip flops for those taking notes.

I disagree. A lot of people who can't afford the whole package will buy the accessories--sunglasses, wallets, pocketbooks. The shoes are actually a better indicator. Someone might be able to afford the Tommy Hilfiger 70% off on the sale rack, but they won't have the Jimmy Choo's to go along with it.

There's a difference in perspective, for sure, so it's possible some folks (natives or locals) do wear cashmere in warm climates - although I don't have enough experience to have seen it.

Absolutely.

There's much more care (time) put into the real deal.

The cool jox all wear underarmour or very expensive sports jerseys of their favorite hockey or football teams. And very expensive athletic shoes.
Our son: some kind of sloganned or rockband t-shirt with a flannel or hoodie over it... he is not a trendy one - we are middle class.
Hate to break it to you, but an Under Armour shirt can be picked up for under $25. A concert tee is $40.

i disagree. style wise, they are basics, not changing a lot based on fashion trends. but j crew does not scrimp on quality like gap has been and you have to pay more for that. gap quality has gone down in the last few years. i think they've been using cheaper fabrics to keep prices down.

That's possible with Gap, I don't shop there. Bottom line they are a pretty moderate brand, nothing special.
