I think that American fashion comes from America and is not directly influenced by European fashions. We have some great fashion designers of our own. Then I think that many people are influenced by seeing what the hollywood types are wearing.

I do shop for all kinds of fashions on eBay. And I've noticed that international offerings are all in sizes smaller than American sizes in both male and female clothing. It makes me feel that Americans are quite bovine by comparison. With the British, I think that their uniform for the men is still a nice tweed jacket from Harrods with the appropriate accessories. In the early 80's, I had various people being me back wonderful punk rock clothing, including a pair of black leather pants without seams in the knees. I've visited Paris twice and never felt the need to bring back any boutique clothing. At full retail, it was all too pricey for my beer budget.

Well I know one thing. Most of Americans aside from Manhattan area dress homely compared to most of Europeans.

Prada, Dior, Dolce, are all very common from my country. especially from other countries like russia, france, and england.

I was just in Paris and did not see any fabulously dressed women or men. I stayed in Madeleine so I was in a pretty upscale area. The biggest difference I could tell is that most people were dressed in business clothes and not the big baggy clothing we seem to favor. Honestly I saw better dressed people in Madrid. However, and on an entirely different topic, I saw some absolutely beautiful men in Paris! Oo la,la!

Have you thought that maybe you are the one that has it wrong ?

No, I'm pretty sure that I have flawless fashion sense, whether it be haute couture or otherwise.

Secondly, NYC is the fashion capital of the world and that is undisputed. Milan is a pretty good runway stopover. People vaguely associate fashion with Paris just as we think of grit when we think of NYC... but the heart and soul of fashion creation is Manhattan. If you're going to make it, you can only do so there.

Actually you are right, the baggy clothing style in America is kind of trashy in opinion. I see guys especially buying expensive baggy clothes that make them look like "hoods" and "homeless" people. I know it just a "style" but the society kind of set the line of what is considered classy & trashy.

But I agree with you.
Beautiful men in Paris? -- very right about that.
