i think style is generally improving in boston....the first H&M only opened in 2000. there is no forever21 here (there's very little cheap chic in fact).
in fact, i think boston is one of the most under retailed cities in the country. we are missing so many stores that other "lesser" cities have. we have no nordstroms, no zara. there's a bloomingdales in the suburbs but its difficult to get to...
i never liked shopping at the saks here as it was missing so many brands, had poor service and the carpets were stained....
we have to wait until 2010 for a nordstroms that will open 20 miles away...
the barneys store opening was great. i was so happy when it opened.
i think in general most real bostonians (not tourists) wont pay a lot for fashion. that may be why most of them are so poorly dressed. also we dress for the weather and for comfort and obesity is a huge problem here (no matter how many times boston/cambridge lands on the "healthiest cities" list.)
