There seem to be very few smart dressers in Montreal. Most people are dressed more functionally, slightly dowdy even. I see few young executives wearing sharp suits and brightly polished shoes. Few bright shirts and dynamic ties.
It’s a completely subjective statement, perhaps the sharp dressers drive to work, or take the metro at different times to me (I try to avoid peak times). But so far, my impression of the average Montrealer is someone dressed fairly averagely. A nondescript, functional dresser wearing warm clothing and sensible shoes.
Is a nation less obsessed with fashion a good thing? In my view, probably.
