Post from Steve:
Think fashion is different in the city you travel? I think most people would say yes, but at the same time not realize how drastically fashion can change just a few hundreds of miles away. Take for example my trip to Austin TX. Austin has always been known to be the “different” and “unique” city in Texas. Austin goes by the motto, “Keep Austin Weird” and they do honor their motto.
Being the State Capital as well as housing one of the largest universities in the country, there is a social economic mix there that is unique to just a few places in the U.S. You’ll likely see a billionaire and a student frequenting the same bar or restaurant. Talk about extremes, from high fashion to college grunge.
While some establishments would frown on this diversity, it’s actually embraced in Austin. I think they may have something going here….maybe other place should adopt.
