Due to warmer climates, Americans have the luxury of wearing T-shirts as often as possible. Flip flops are also common in America, especially if you head on to the beach. The Brits, however, have a different style and are not a fan of T-shirts or flip-flops. They tend to take fashion seriously and often spend ample time on their makeovers. Whatever the occasion or lack of it, the British always make sure that they dress their best.
