Poorly dressed travel destinations

Now I know there's been a few threads linking to articles saying which cities are the worst dressed in the world, but I what are some places people have been that were poorly dressed?

I did all my schooling overseas (originally from America), so I've been to a fair amount of places, but I lived in Aberdeen (Scotland) for 7 years and that has to get my vote. The reason I thought of this is because I'm back in country for the summer and though I noticed poor style before, I never really noticed it until this summer.

I'm not sure what the problem is, but there is an abundance of garish jeans with innumerable pockets and extremely bizarre fades. I know you find this everywhere, but honestly everybody wears them. But the main culprit of poor Aberdeen style has to be Hollister. They opened up a store in one of the new malls a few years ago and it's completely taken over. Everybody owns at least one piece of Hollister, with most wearing it on a daily basis. To each his own, but don't people hate looking at every other person and seeing the same brand? I love Aberdeen because it's pretty much my hometown and the longest I lived anywhere, but I can't buy a damn thing while I'm here unless I drive on down to Edinburgh or elsewhere.

And I better include this lest I forget it.


Scotland's finest.
