For instance, I live in a very swanky and upscale part of LA because I am pretty awesome.
He's right. In Southern California, you have to substitute flip-flops for the boat shoes.

Whoa! I haven't seen boat shoes in Southern California since I tossed the last Vineyard Vines catalog the USPS left on my front porch.

I've seen 'em around, but OK, OK, I give! Flip-flops is clearly the right answer on footwear.

Cargo shorts, hoodie and flip-flops (or sneakers) seem like the appropriate uniform for young SoCal males these days.

All the jokes about this being an epicenter of coke and pot seem very 30 to 40 years ago, and, hey, the Beach Boys were 50-odd years ago!

Untuck the shirt and this would be perfect for an Annapolis theme party. Hey there, sailor!

Except for the "cutoff" you seem to have confused California with Nantucket or
Bah Hahbah.

Yeah, yeah, cargo shorts, dull hoodie, flip flops. OK.

But he can't pull it off without a similarly-dressed, slightly chubby and somewhat bitchy Filipina or Mexican gf in arm, dark dark tan and blonded arm hair, idiotic surfer dude twang (think Okie parents), reeks of backyard barbecue from his earlier stop that evening, pulls up in a ten-year-old SUV, pants pocket bulge with the latest I-phone 4 that rings incessantly cuz the idiot doesn't know to put texts on buzz only, etc, etc.

Here's a quick rundown of some CA archetypes (mostly Southern CA related) and their usual uniforms:

Surfer/beach bum: Board shorts (baggy) with surf/skate brand T-shirt/tanktop and Rainbow flip-flops (optional hoodie and shades)

Hypebeast: Outrageously colored sneakers a must, baggy/saggy jeans, LRG hoodie or similar, fitted cap (bonus points for matching outfit colors to sneakers)

Jerk (referencing the hip-hop movement): similar to Hypebeast, but skinny jeans. Emphasis on the skinny jeans. See video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POPP-Aoo8Po

SoCal Clubber: all about the brands, Ed Hardy, Monarchy, True Religion, Rock & Republic, Antik, throw on some square-toed shoes, and faux hawk that haircut. Fake tan for the win.

Retiree: Hula shirt, khaki shorts, flip-flops, big straw hat (not even panama status, think bigger: http://www.amazon.com/DORFMAN-PACIFI.../dp/B000UJCBH6)

That's all I can think of for now, let me see if I can come up with a few more later.
