I just moved to Chicago from NYC. I never considered the huge differences in personal style beween urban areas more than I am right now. I mean sure, LA vs. NYC has clear differences... but Chicago seems to be a land of its very own rules. For example, thick soled shoes... with suits... common. It's not winter. In general a distinct lack of panache can be found here, despite the fact that the largest RL store in the country is right here. Can anyone local comment on Chicago style?
