Clothing in America alters all the time. In the 50's it was suits and ties, in the eighties it was big collars and crazy hair and now, it's saggy pants. The style has changed dramatically. Currently the west coast gets their fashion sense from France, and the east coast gets it from the West. The big thing now is having very expensive basketball shoes that match your outfit. You can tell a lot about a person just by the way they dress. If they have a cowboy hat, and jeans, they are probably from the south.
