I saw one in Sturgis, SD that said It Ain't Gonna Lick Itself. That one's not too popular though...

It's west coast looking like was mentioned with the torn jeans and flip flops, but the names on the shirts are mostly towns in the Adirondacks and say things like "New York" "Peekskill" or "Saranac" and things like that. The CA themed shirts that say "Dana Point" or "Hermosa Beach" are all Hollister. and yes, it's all from the Columbus area... specifically New Albany.
You're correct. Abercrombie is not even a California "look"; Abercombie's style is more East Coast/New England prep.

The only California looks are campy and tacky rubbish brands like Ed Hardy.

New York is considered the Fashion Capital of the world.

i would have to say yes since California pretty much dominates the american media which is the #1 indicator in the average american's life. especially, all of those teenagers who want to rock something like "hollister" or the latest thing they seen on MTV's "The Hills."

First of all, I said New York City was CONSIDERED the Fashion Capital of the World which is why many of those top French (and Italian) designers have flagship stores in New York City.

Fashion capital - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And most of those houses you've listed are absolute rubbish and are done with/don't sell with the exception of Balenciaga, Chanel, Hermes, Christian Dior/Dior Homme, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent and I fail to see how Paris edges out Milan as "Fashion Capital" anyway.

Oh come on. NY is fashion Capital of the USA. Not LA. Ask anybody in the fashion industry. And wearing California T shirts is hardly fashion.

THANK YOU!!!
Since when is wearing a Hollister shirts high fashion? And since when does the cast of "The Hills" wear Hollister shirts? They live in West Hollywood, they can do a little better than that. My prepubescent neighbor wears Hollister shirts and too much cologne...
