Who are the world's best and worst dressers?

There are stylish and fashionable people in most countries, but the average in some is higher than in others.

It's really a matter of economic conditions.

Not really. So for the sake of argument I am only going to include people from first world countries.

I would say the best dressed people include:

Japan
South Korea
Sweden
Italy

Worst dressed:

USA
Canada
Denmark

Interesting because Sweden and Denmark are both Scandinavian countries. How (and why) do Danes dress worse, in your opinion?

Overdressed : the French, Germans, British, Belgians, Swiss, Austrians, Poles and Italians
Just about right : the Spanish, Russians, the rest of Eastern Europe, and Scandinaians
Underdressed (sloppy) : USA, CND

You'll notice a huge difference when entering/leaving either country for the other. I don't know why but Danes are (and have always been) very sloppy dressers. Maybe that's changing though. But you will also see them wearing a lot of different styles, where as the Swedes usually conform to one or two single styles. You won't ever see people wearing an Adidas track suit or something in Sweden, but you'll see it in Denmark.

Italians are usually flashier than French people.

I would not say either is better dressed than the other, but in France people are usually a lot tamer-looking and it is kinda considered immature to wear a hoodie and sneakers (for guys) if you are past, say, 27 years old, whereas you should wear derby shoes with a leather jacket and a scarf, complete with a button-up shirt like every normal adult should do once they're finished with grad school.

In Italy, it is much more common to see older guys dressed as younger men with brand new sneakers and suchlike.

In France things are more formal and a lot of people also do not really care and try not to look like anything (especially men).

In France I look like a punk, with the same clothes here I look completely random and uninteresting.

Finns aren't particularly good dressers, but I've heard that different subculture and 'flashy' clothing are more prevalent than in Sweden, where the style is more conformist.
Especially during summer weekends some people dress like they would be homeless.

The worst dressers are obviously Saudis and other peoples from the Arabian peninsula.
