What do we mean by well-dressed? Because I'm very picky in that department.

I know many who'd beg to differ (including myself). It's impossible to rank an entire city as being the "best dressed" or "worst dressed". People in Scottsdale tend to dress very well as do many people in L.A., Dallas, New York, Washington D.C., etc. EVERY major city will have people who are very image-oriented but will also have an equal number of those that could care less. I personally try to dress well but I don't want to "over-impress". I usually wear a simple striped or solid collar shirt and tie with black or kahki pants for work in summer and usually a suit in the winter when it's chilly.

What I mean by best dress is not dressed up to the nines. I mean, creative, interesting, take an interest in fashion. You can shop at thrift stores and still have an interesting look. I dated this guy once (off topic slightly) and he kept telling me he had great taste... "I have great taste!," he would say. Well, truth be told, he had horrible taste. Last time I saw him he was wearing these ghastly Frankenstine shoes--huge black things with thick black rubber soles and black laces...and he was so judgmental of me because I had this chemical peel on my face. Let me tell you, he could of used a chemical peel too and a little eyebrow shaping as well. Some of those buggers were sticking out past his nose!

Yet when I was packing up my apartment to put everything in storage, I was overcome by all the boxes of clothes -- and shoes! -- and purses! Sometimes I'll go to another town, and I'm shocked by how badly everyone dresses. You take it for granted living in Los Angeles.

I've just given you a very superficial example, but clothes and style also demonstrate a town's imagination, it's creativity, and art community. Just for fun, what are some of the best dressed towns you know of? Any surprises out there?
I guess you must be looking at a very selective group of LA's citizens, like maybe the ones shopping on Rodeo Drive or perhaps the rich Japanese tourists staying at the hotels downtown.

From my trips there, the average person in LA is dressed terribly. The typically LA male walks around in a wifebeater and low hanging jean shorts. Actually for every LA metrosexual like Brad Pitt whose styling for the paparazzi, there's probably ten thousand guys on the LA streets dressed as I've described above... perhaps even worse. You don't have to go to Compton to see them, just take a walk on Wilshire Blvd. sometime.

People in Louisville I noticed were pretty well dressed, but then again it was a Sunday when I was there and everyone had just gotten out of church...many beautiful Southern belles Chicago and St. Louis are pretty well-dressed. Criminy, any city is well-dressed...it's the rural areas where you meet Jim Bob and Willy Mae in their torn-up trousers and overalls, everyone knows that COME ON!
