Not here in CO; sweaters w/o shirts are popular here b/c it isn't that cold in metro Denver. In the mtns, anything to keep warm.

I know, right? Dress-down Denver! haha. I must say, however, that last night I was at midnight mass and I saw a lot of suits and ties.

Arizona is casual. Coming from NY, sometimes I do miss seeing a man in an overcoat.

Here in Columbus, where Abercrombie and Fitch is based, function is not usually the name of the game. We do not have a beach yet flip flops are more than common in the suburban centers. Flashy dress shirts are the norm for guys when going out to a club in the winter. Also, church goers tend to dress up and would not wear jeans.

However, Columbus is more casual on a day to day basis or at a theater event than other places I have been to but the look is very different in function and style from New England. I think it is interesting.
Columbus has always struck me as one of the most fashionable places in the midwest. It's an unusually dressy place.

I guess in the Highlands people are a bit more old fashioned than us. Where I live people dress with style, especially with Glasgow's fashion industry i'd say we do pretty well. I do like my Gucci and Prada.

Only people here i've ever seen badly dressed are farmers.

here in the NYC area people dress in pretty expensive clothes, whether it's casual or dressy. Not all of us though. I'm told i'm a typical yuppie, but I don't dress in really expensive clothes.

It's funny - it's completely different within the metro area. In Connecticut, people dress more preppy (see my post above). In NJ, it's more D&G...kinda flashy, and in Westchester, Gucci and Burberry are common. I can't pin Long Island though.

You're right. Even from the Bronx to Brooklyn it's a bit different, but that's as far as teenagers and kids. With adults, it's not that much different. You're right about CT though. I went every weekend to play Ice hockey growing up. I'm originally from Long Island, and even to me it's hard to point out. I think it's most similar to how people dress in Westchester. Lots of people wear some of the more expensive flashy types of clothes.

Here in Texas we wear boots, cowboy hats, tight jeans with collar shirts and nice fancy belts.
