A 100% Scientific Graph of What You Are Wearing

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Tue, Feb 5, 2013 at 11:44 AM

As part of a giant marketing campaign on behalf of cotton (which everybody already likes), the cotton people scoured the entire country, documenting street styles that included cotton (99% of street styles include cotton). From this data, they were able to scientifically graph what each region in the US is wearing, and here's what they uncovered regarding the Northwest:

  • Cotton

Wow, guys. Great job.

All sarcasm aside, though, they did have the good sense to team up with Portland photographer and Urban Weeds blogger Lisa Warninger, who is essentially tasked with judging the regional finalists, and the gallery makes for some Tuesday anthropology-lite. Not that cotton (Cotton?) asked, but I've gone ahead and selected who I think our top contenders should be:

Jade Rose M. from Portland: All about the pants obviously.
  • Cotton
  • Jade Rose M. from Portland: All about the pants obviously.

Priscilla P from Clackamas
  • Cotton
  • Priscilla P from Clackamas

Brae L from Missoula

Carly F from Helena, MT

You can check out the whole gallery here, just watch out for that big rough patch near the end that appears to have been taken at a college campus in Idaho. Yeesh.
