Why These Women Are Talking Sh*t About Your Hometown

Jul 31 2014 - 4:30am

As the song goes: getting to know you, getting to know all about you. Well, we are definitely getting to know quite a bit about women across this great country thanks to the friendly guides of Reddit [1]. For example, were you aware that there is a severe epidemic of monograms in Tennessee? Neither did we! And while we know the stereotype that New Yorkers wear too much black to be true, we never imagined a few miles north, our beloved leather jackets might be considered "overdressed." Live and learn, and you're about to get some serious learning.

New York City

"All black all the time. Even in summer. I love black, but I also love colors and it feels like I stand out so much on the street when I'm dressed brightly." — Reddit user Jlop818 [3]

Florida

"SO. MANY. STRAW FEDORAS." — Reddit user 12cats [4]

Silicon Valley

"Ugh. Just. Ugh. I mean I get it, tech companies they want to a different corporate culture, and one that's more casual and whatnot. But there's a difference between casual and gross/sloppy." — Reddit user rd_trude [5]

Seattle

"Frasier and Niles would be so pissed." — Reddit user bethlookner [6]

Tennessee

". . . monogrammed EVER.Y.THING. Bathing suits, tote bags, boots." — Reddit user raspberrygalaxy [8]

Upstate New York

"I felt too overdressed even when I was just wearing a nice leather jacket." — Reddit user prosummobono [9]

Texas

"Oh god, the crappy bling cowgirl stuff. Hate it. It's the bane of every boutique on Texas I swear." — Reddit user Ripped_My_Knickers [10]

Boston

"Dear Boston: Sports apparel is not appropriate for all functions. Not everything needs to be emblazoned with the Red Sox 'B.' Especially at fine dining establishments." — Reddit user Simms85 [11]

Mississippi

"I love Lilly Pulitzer [12] as much as the next girl here, but putting bows on everything, wearing chevrons everywhere, mint or peach colored clothes, and just the general 'cheap boutique' look . . . drives me nuts. Also, Confederate flags on clothes. This is really a thing." — Reddit user iwontmakeyoursammich [13]

Midwest

"Why in the world do grown people think it is ok to wear pajama bottoms in public?! . . . Hello Kitty [14] pj bottoms on a 40 year old woman at 2 in the afternoon in the grocery store. Don't give up on life, people. Don't wear the pjs in public." — Reddit user lgfromks [15]

Kentucky

". . . what strikes me is that it seems that everyone here wears clothes that are a size too small. I'm not a slim woman, but at least I know that the fit is more important than the number." — Reddit user -oligodendrocyte- [16]

Utah

". . . You can be modest and still be stylish. You can show your shoulders and not got to Hell." — Reddit user Memithezombiekiller [17]

Texas

"I do not understand summer scarves in Texas. I get that they're a lighter fabric but every piece of clothing that isn't essential is one more thing making you sweat more." — Reddit user beansley01 [18]
