I'm in Toledo, Ohio where it's pretty much a jeans and tshirt kinda place. If it's cold, it's a long sleeved tshirt. There is only one halfway decent mall here and the biggest stores are Abercrombie, American Eagle, Aeropostale, Gap, Banana Republic and Old Navy. If I had to sum up the general style here, it'd be "boring."

The second outfit from the left is okay, but the rest are not my style. You see a lot of this in Missouri.

Yep. That's pretty much it. Especially the first xanga.

I live in Chi-town (and I've lived in SF), so the style here is just like any other big city. Wish I had some good pics to post, but just like any other big city...we are very into fashion.

I moved from Houston to St. Louis a while ago. People wear such boring clothed here! I have to buy <i>everything</i> online now because there are only stores like American Eagle. Finding a good pair of shoes is like pulling teeth!

Midwest Style...Isnt that an oxymoron???
Sorry I dont mean to be harsh...
But, I lived in the midwest for a few years...and lost all my motivation to be creative there. There is no style in the midwest, and if you dont understand that then you ought to visit stylish cities to see what Im talking about.

He was wearing some manner of a cabbie hat and a standard men's woolen winter coat, but you sure could tell he thought he was Mr. Suave and Debonair...waiting for the damn bus with the rest of us plebes!
....funny...

Oh, waaah. One can be a creative dresser and live in a dull city. Honestly, look at Alex or me. You just have to work harder at it.
