Atlanta isn't really more fashionable than neither. You try wearing that stuff you wear in those cities on the east in Houston, and you'll see why many people don't rock it. Houstonians can be fashionable whenever its necessary or when the climate is right.

Not funky off beat as much like Houston.Also in Houston you see hick attire, wrangler jeans and cowboy boots and hats too.
Every time I go out in Houston, people just seem to be comfortable with whatever they are wearing. Every time I go out in Dallas, people try to put on their best every where I go.

I too agree that the "cowboy boots and hats" crowd is more prevelant in Houston than it is in Dallas, but if we include Fort Worth with Dallas, then it is more prevelant in DFW overall.

For better or worse, Dallas is overall more fashionable and Houston is overall more laid back. Not saying that some people in Houston arent fashionable and some people in Dallas dress more laid back, but overall I do believe that is the case.

Hair also seems to be a big deal down there. I've seen some real nice weaves down in H-town lol. No, but seriously, when I moved down to SE Texas to go to school, I was impressed with how put together the black girls were. Since I had just left Central Texas where people actually are "underdressed" (people would come to school in pajama pants...country, I know)
Yes, the blacks in Houston say the blacks in Dallas are more counrty in their dress and talk. But people say Houston is not as groomy as Dallas.

Yeah thats right, the weather has alot of to do with it. In Dallas its a bit more season, maybe. Also its seem Dallas is more a test city and more wordly known than Houston. When you think of Texas: Dallas, San Antonio or Austin. Than Houston. But Houston is the 4th largest, but as a major city it lacks abit.

The middle is suburbs are mixed. The southern surburbs are becoming overwhelming black. Hispanics are concentrating in the inner city and westward into Irvin. Its also a lye that DFW suburbs are ultra conservative. The middle and southern suburbs are more moderate and the northern suburbs are very conservative.

A "lye"? And isn't this a bit contradictory? You say it's a lie that the DFW suburbs are ultra conservative, but then say the northern suburbs are very conservative. Which one is it?

And where is "Irvin"?

Left my "g" off Irving. I said the northern suburbs are conservative. The middle suburbs which include Arlington, Grand Prairie, and Irving are more moderate. I also stated that the southern suburbs are more moderate. LOL I notice you love challenging all my post and have something to say about all my post. Whats up with that? I live here I pretty much know the regions of DFW. I am entitled to my opinion. Here's a map. Maybe you can better understand where I am coming from.

Sorry, it's nothing personal, believe me. And you know you're not the only poster I've gone toe-to-toe with. That was the English Major/writer/grammar nazi in me that reared its head when I saw the misspellings. It happens *shrugs*

Houston seems to be a lot more lassiez faire and "open" in it's history (not denying that the city had its share of racial problems). Do you think the de Facto segragation that seems more pervasive in Dallas have something to do with that? When I lived in Dallas, I chose to move to Richardson and Addison in order to be closer to my job and people I knew in the Southern suburbs acted as if I had a third eye (I'm black)
I really can't imagine why they would have acted that way, especially since Richardson borders the Lake Highlands area where there are plenty of blacks.

I'm black, and I'm looking into the NE Dallas area since it appears to be an easier commmute to the airport.
