We know the first thing you think of when you think of Seattle is our killer fashion style. Right. We live in a land best known for fleece and flannel; “grunge” was the “fashion” movement that put Seattle on the scene. On any given day you’ll see more Keens and Merrels than Jimmy Choos or Louboutins. Going out to a nice restaurant (Oh, what? We did a blog on where to eat in Seattle? We sure did.)? There’s good money you’ll still see some North Face fleece there—but hey, maybe someone wore their “nice” fleece instead of their “everyday” fleece.
