I don't like the West Coast style in general. Particularly for men. Not enough panache. Women's looks tend to be too casual and not polished enough for me.

I do like Manhattan, particularly the whole upper east side/ladies who lunch look. And the SOHO look - edgier urban chic.

I don't like Boston, a little too conservative preppy for me. Even though I like preppy.

I haven't spent enough time in Atlanta to know what the fashion scene is like, but Southern women tend to be a little too "done" for my taste. But I am a California girl at heart, and fall somewhere between CA ease and East Coast classics. I love a great structured bag, skinny jeans, flats and a nice top. Somewhere between preppy, urban and low-key. In some ways I am very Manhattan, I talk fast and like to dress up to an extent. And I like "nice" stuff. But on the other hand I am very Brooklyn too! But I don't like the cold, so NYC isn't really my place. But if someone gave me free housing, I wouldn't turn down a move there.

I live in soho so I am biased, but sometimes I am in awe of people's fashion sense in nyc. Sometimes it's trying to hard, but other times amazing.
Really enjoy the miami style as well.
The worst? Northern nj dudes.

I thought we don't dress up a whole lot different than NYC people , and believe it or not around 20 % of the people who you regularly see in NYC are actually from Northern NJ. I visit NYC quite often, and don't see an enormous difference in style for men compared to northern NJ. Maybe for women its quite different since NYC chic's focus on being trendier.

Maybe you just have the wrong friends.

OMG, this thread has revived my immaturity earlier on F & B forum . It makes me look like a idiot.

I will NEVER turn into that Adi ever again. I am a changed man now after being disciplined by the Police.

I agree that Denver is very, very bland when it comes to fashion. But I think it depends on what you're used to. Coming from Chicago, where people get fairly dressed up on the weekends to go out, to here where shorts and flip flops are the standard uniform even for really nice restaurants....it was quite a shock. I've gone out with friends in attire that wasn't even my dressiest and have had friends inquire about why I'm so "dressed up".

I love that Denver is so casual, but I moved here from SoCal We don't wear shoes in our house, but I think that's something I learned from all my Asian friends. A friend who visited from NYC thought we were insane for not wearing shoes indoors lol!

We don't wear shoes inside the house either, partly for comfort and partly for the sake of keeping clean floors and carpets.

Texas, because I have the "Texas big hair" look every morning when waking up!

Least favorite is probably SF/Portland/Seattle...the clothing styles are too gloomy, boxy and hipsterish.
