A good deal of our discussions deal with what's appropriate, stylish, fresh, or interesting. I think a key component to understanding what makes something appealing is knowing the context in which it's being worn. For instance, what someone wears in Manhattan differs from what someone wears in Phoenix. I think we could understand a bit more if users would update their profiles to indicate what cities they're in. I don't think that revealing the city, or even state, would compromise the anonymity of users. This added information would certainly provide some added context for understanding opinions and preferences. It's easy to add your location: go to Control Panel, Personal Info, Edit Your Profile, Your Location.
