I found Florence , Italy to be rather nice. The women wore the simple white t-shirt or longsleeve, hair pulled back, sunglasses and jeans, but it looked well put together as opposed to frumpy.

The young men wore summer suits. The older gentlemen wore their short sleeeve shirts and played bocci. It all worked.

It really help the overall aesthetic to not see EVERYBODY wearing sneakers.

The worst: Istanbul

To give a UK perspective - we are very, very patchy. London (or at least parts of it!) has some great style on display and a lot of people seem to take care of their appearance. Not necessarily in a conservative "suit & tie" way, but it definitely has some people with a good sense of style. Other parts of Southern England can do conservative style quite well. Oxford actually has enough young students trying to look good that there's a sense of style around if you look hard enough. You have to look though!

You mean like sexy women?

The casualness of dress that has permeated America has taken root in every other country in the world as well. There is no sartorial "shining city on a hill". That said, the Upper East Side of Manhattan is Mecca.

I'd imagine the Parc Monceau (or much of the southern 17th arrondissement) on a weekday afternoon, the banks of the Alster and certain parts of Rome, Vienna and many other cities are shining satellite Medinas, then?

People in China, usually large cities take an effort of dressing up. Some of the women have hairstyles so elaborate, they look like extras from Hairspray.

Soph, you really need take a holiday, in Europe. I think that you'll see that it ain't all that, sartorially speaking. Now, the women....................

I spent a few months in Milan (spent all my money at Tincati!) and I was very impressed with the style of the men and women.

Here's a shocker: Tony Gaziano told me that he thinks Japan is the best dressed country.

Probably because that's where his Money is coming from.

Ever since Ive started taking an above-average interest in dressing well Ive been overwhelmed with the mediocrity everywhere I travel. Italy is really the only place where you'll find a decent number of young men wearing suits just for the hell of it, so Im going to give them my vote. I guess because the downtowns arent as overrun with as many damn hipsters as the nations?

Can't really blame Angelenos for dressing the way they do - just blame it on the weather.

Angelenos wore wonderful clothes, back in the day, even before AC. See Hollywood.
