Portland:

Tight grey jeans that are rolled up or cut off, a second hand t-shirt possibly patched or modified and probably striped, dirty old Converses with brightly colored shoelaces, mismatched socks that go up mid calf, big white- or red-framed 80s/90s style sunglasses, and a kerchief around the neck, with dirty and dyed bedhead hair, a few facial and/or ear piercings, and scruff if a dude (the rest fits both genders). So a scenester basically.

Houston..........simple t-shirt, blue jeans or khakis, sneakers or sandals, Astros cap if its REALLY humid! All paid for with cash, and carrying a "Lovin Life" attitude!

Dallas.........over-starched $500 Armani button-down shirt, tailor made $500 Jeans or slacks, overpriced Prada loafers, hair with enough product to kill an elephant! All paid for on credit, and sporting a "Look what I have and you don't" attitude!

I didn't say anything's wrong with Tennessee, but apparently New Yorkers wear dirty underwear.

No, that's not what I said. The question for this thread is: "How would you personify the way a city dresses if it were a person?" It didn't ask how the people in the city dress. There's a big difference.

Atlanta-a button down long sleeved dress shirt, un-tucked, with expensive loose-fitting baggy jeans (but not sagging), new White nike airforce ones, and a Braves or Yankees baseball cap.

(this shows Atlanta's mix of a serious business town, with a heavy hip hop influence, although trying not to be too thuggish, worried about being fashionable and trendy, and struggling to choose whether it mostly identifies with the north or the south).

Dallas-a button down long sleeved dress shirt, tucked in, with expensive jeans, worn boots, and a Dallas Cowboys cap.

(this shows Dallas' as a serious business town, not quite liberal enough to untuck the shirt, but casual enough to wear a cap...which for Dallas is the substitute for the cowboy hat. The boots show the attachment to its past that it still holds on to)

Tdallas' depiction of Atlanta's style of dress was pretty good, I would go with the all black Boston fitted instead.

I agree with this one.... "scenester" is definitely the word. When I first moved to Portland a few years ago, I went on a tour of the Art Institute, I was wearing a long tank top with a short hoodie halfway zipped with my belt on the outside of my tank top, with jeans (not skinny jeans, ew) and khussa slippers (those indian style shoes) and the lady said.... Your from Nebraska? I wouldn't of expected you to look like this, you look like a Portlander. I just think I look like myself.... I listen to hip hop and don't look like I do either. Ah well.
