(a french and a german and a japonese CEO really don't dress exactly alike and niether do an american, british and greek worker).
Does the CEO of Mircosoft dress exactly alike the one of MORGAN STANLEY or FORD ? Do you dress like your collegues? Like your friends?

good point, but the CEOs of 10 italian companies will dress enough alike to tell them (with, say 80%accuracy) from 10 German CEOs.

Ernest, I often work in environments where large groups of foreigners gather. I can assure you it is fairly easy to guess nationalities based on the way they dress solely. And I am no expert in men's clothing by any stretch of the imagination. I'll be at one of those gatherings next week, and I'll bet you I'll pick the right language to address individuals in with a 90% accuracy rate.

Fabienne: By the spelling of your name, I assumed you were female. Is that pic you post with your messages you? If so, I want to move to Paris. Oh, wait. I'm married. See, what you've done, you homewrecker you.

I thought it's Julie Delpy. But she's French too.

I think both factors are involved .... nationality and "social group".... so there is no reason to argue....no problem has JUST one solution

LOL. I was going to make a comment similar to yours this morning but I figured I'd better not. Fabienne, there's something about that photo and your posts that have gotten our attention. Oh, I'm single.

Ernest, I often work in environments where large groups of foreigners gather.  I can assure you it is fairly easy to guess nationalities based on the way they dress solely.  And I am no expert in men's clothing by any stretch of the imagination.  I'll be at one of those gatherings next week, and I'll bet you I'll pick the right language to address individuals in with a 90% accuracy rate.
It is also easy to tell by looking their face/body. A small european guy with dark hairs isn't likely to come from Finland. A tall blond comes rarely from Japan. I mean, may be you don't tell who is who because of the clothes.

Of course many factors are involved, age is one of these but take Minister in Japan, Italy, US, or Russia, they are more or less dressed in the same way. Do the same with a civil servant working in a post office, you will have the same result. Of course, some stuffs will be more popular in Japan than in US but it will a detail that most of people will not notice.

Yes, Bachbeet, Julie Delpy it is. I picked her as an avatar this time around because two male friends, within three months of seeing "Before Sunset" (with Ethan Hawke) called or emailed to tell me how unbelievable the similarities between the character in the movie and me were, and that they couldn't help doing double-takes. I rented the movie to see who that imposter was, and, and... I think my accent in English is far less perceptible than hers.

Those are two excellent movies; there's also a nice scene in Waking Life with Hawke and Delpy. koji
