Irvine Is The Most Fashionable City In America, Says A Real Study

Turns out the most fashionable people in America don't dwell in Manhattan or LA. 

They live in Irvine. Yes, Irvine, California, USA.  

That's according to research by Bundle, which measured the percentage of "fashion conscious households" in the country's 50 largest cities. The data company defines a fashion conscious household as one that has had at least four transactions at top-end designer merchants in the past 30 months. 

Ah, makes more sense. We know that many of Irvine's beige stucco homes come complete with big walk-in closets for all the bags brought home from neighboring SCP and Fashion Island. Still, as we've learned from the Real Housewives of OC, big designer purchases do not translate into actual style. 

But if you still wanna go by the study, Buffalo, New York is ranked as least fashionable city in America. What? Long underwear isn't hot?

A writer for OC Weekly should be knowledgable enough to distinguish Irvine from OC Housewives, none of whom live in Irvine, a city where where it's still inappropriate to see a girl with her boobs hanging out of her shirt. You WILL see lots of Taiwanese girls with expensive accessories, but few asian girls slut it up in terms of fashion.

Apparently the people at Bundle have never been to  any of the Irvine Company's slummy apartment complexes.

So Irvine is the most fashionable? Guess that's true if fashionable means "douche bags who buy ugly over priced crap because someone said it would make them look like trendsetters".

Nice to see their hard earned dollars going to the department stores.

Ha ha...I grew up in irvine, and got the hell out of there as soon as I could, and yes it's a wealthy city. Most fashionable, hell no! It's pretty much all foreigners who go to SCP, buy the most expensive labels and try to show their "status" by wearing all of the different brands at once. Tacky!!!!!

Thank goodness someone realized that buying at the Top End does not translate to style.  Fashion conscious?  Probably.  Most fashionable?  Hell to the No.

It's also the most boring city on Earth.

Ding, ding, ding. Jeff get's it in one. Asians are totally ga-ga over 'top-end' luxury brands. So much so that they are often that less-than-Irvine affluent ones are often involved in the production and importing of counterfeit 'luxury' brand goods, but that's another story.

BTW Burberry is the mark of 'chavs' -- the brit version of white trash.

@Kanoa9321 Sure! Yea, right. If your stupid enough to pay the prices, good for you! Just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD! Moron.
