everywhere I went while driving from philadelphia to california,and even visiting florida....I see people with "California" on their shirts...

brands like Hollister and Abercrombie use all kinds of cali motifs and it seems most american girls wear these brands

are there any other states that can compete with the California name?

imo we disembowel the competition

University of Illinois.

I think that's certainly the lion's share of place names as far as I've seen. Go around the Midwest and you'll see Illinois, Iowa, Ohio State, etc. shirts all over.

East coast I tend to see a lot of Ivy league school shirts.

These are most of what I've seen. Then you have the Old Navy, Gap, Abercrombie etc that throw all the random names on shirts. Most of them seem to be NYC based, or Hawaii or Santa Monica, etc. Otherwise random stuff like northern Wisconsin bait traps and other "retro" shirts.

I hate to break people's bubbles but Hollister and Abercrombie are both headquartered in COLUMBUS, OHIO

so does Columbus dominate american clothing is a more appropriate title to thread...

go figure

Abercrombie and Hollister, at least where im at, seem to be more geared to the high school crowd. ralph lauren, lacoste, sperrys, sunglasses with the strap holder etc. is more in line with the hip crowd these days.
