Yeah, but in Dallas you can actually wear winter clothes, too. Miami and most of FL is the same old boring shorts and too many cut off tees when I go out. Most of the people here in summer look absolutely terrible.

What is up with Dallas and their fascination with fashion? I can't imagine any city looking forward to wearing winter clothes!
Dallas really loves to show off it's clothing line, huh? That's cool- Houstonians are pretty simplistic in that regard.

Both ways work though.

In Dallas, even labor-heavy jobs require you to dress business casual, just in case a high value individual visits your business, you want to make a good impression on your clientele no matter what job you do. I myself kinda got tired of it really. I did everything from unloading trucks, containers, to dealing with some very high value collectibles, but I thought it was absurd to be doing the harder work in business casual. Not only do your good clothes get dirty, you feel restricted. And in Dallas it gets very, very windy too. Gotta make sure your hair doesn't get too funked up LOL!!

Go uptown on McKinney ave. There are very few places in the US that are more fashion conscious. Its not really me, but its there.

New York City, Los Angeles, Miami. I think Dallas has a good thing going for it, I really like how every Texas city has it's own characteristic to separate it from the rest of the group.

I need to visit Dallas again! This time, Koreatown~!!!

These texas/southern threads are becoming very redundant.

In Houston, most people (not all) seem more plain or safe, plus a lot of time we dress according to weather since it’s more extreme here than in most of the country. The younger crowds are somewhat more fashionable of course; In Dallas I saw the same. Well in Dallas it might be ahead by a season or two because the city is a big Fashion Capital and wholesales distributor, but both cities are still behind in looks and styles compared to LA and NYC. I had a friend who was from LA and stated Texas is about "10 years behind in almost everything", which I thought was extreme to say, but I’m guessing she meant that Texan's in general are slower paced, compared to people in LA. Most people In LA see and have experienced "more" than we do here in Texas, far as crime, grime and culture period. I dunno, I can probably see that.

was your friend in dallas? because it sounds like they were being an arrogant jack a--, and overexaggerating by far. there's no way texas is 10 years behind in "almost everything". especially not when it comes to fashion. if that were true, most of the women in texas would still be wearing jellies and tube tops, and the dudes would still be wearing fubu and lugz

the only thing most of texas is way behind in is politics, really
