The visitors at our church were more likely to be in sport coats, suits and ties than the regulars.

Lots of people wear some of the more expensive flashy types of clothes.
That's what I was thinking too. Maybe a mixture between NJ and Westchester.

Around here we go shoeless and wear overalls made from feed sacks

Seriously, here is what Kentuckans dress like this

Kids:

whatever they inherited from older brother and sisters, sneakers with skate wheels, and/or red blinking lights in the soles, earbuds in ears, and runny noses


Recent arrivals from northeast, south, and west:

extra blubber, creepy tattoos peeking out from somewhere, cellphone pressed to ear, and garments of black, black, black - its "slimming" and shows less dirt, and cellphone pressed to ear
Where is this? (so I can be sure never to go there).

From a teen's persepctive growing up on Long Island it's like this.

White Females: Uggs, Tights, Leggings, Mini Skirts, Sweatsuits from Victoria Secret, big poketbooks, abercrombie and fitch, flip flops everyday in summer then uggs in winter. Black women tend to have more of a urban atire, but you can catch some of them wearing this stuff also with a little twist.

Males: Preppy, with some having a little skater, surfer influence. Black males tend to have more of a urban fashion.

You described it pretty well. Except I think it's a little more preppy than you described.

It's my observation that in matters of attire, Southerners hold on to tradition longer than other parts of the country. For instance, Atlanta and McLean, VA are the only places I have lived where invites for weddings after six will specify black tie. I rather like that about this part of the country.
