I attended an International function at my college where several international students wore traditional clothing from their countries - Sari (Indian), Hanbok (South Korea), Danshiki (North Africa), etc... Which led a young lady to ask me about the traditional clothing of the United States.
All I could think to say was, "jeans and a t-shirt." Maybe cowboy boots and hats - and baseball caps. I dunno. There's Native American clothing, which doesn't encompass *all* of the United States. But those cannot be the only items of clothing that are quintessentially American.
I just can't think of anything, so I bring it to you, what would you consider clothing that says United States like a sari says India?
