The 2070s are a dangerous time to live in. In many urban areas, you'd have to be crazy (or suicidal, or stupid) to even consider walking around in just a t-shirt and jeans. You need protection; from the acid rain, from air pollution, from ultraviolet radiation, and from, oh yeah, bullets.
Worn only by the poorest of the poor and those who really don't care what they look like, these soy-based "flats" can be bought from vending machines all over the sprawl. It's ugly, uncomfortable, and barely held together, but it's still slightly better than going naked.
Clothing in the 2070s comes in a bewildering array of styles, and sports amazing features such as commlinks, music players, and other electronics woven right into the fabric and owered by miniscule batteries or special energy-gathering fabrics.
Fine clothing is of obviously higher quality than its regular counterparts. This is what you wear when you want to impress, get noticed in the club, or close the deal on that high-credit contract.
This is the real-deal, as far as clothing is concerned. Tres chic threads are high-fashion garments designed to catch attention and hold it. Wearing tres chic clothes tells everyone who sees you that you've hit the big time, and you've got the taste - and credits - to prove it. It's also a great way to get shanked and left in a ditch in the less-savory areas of the sprawl.
