With the completion of the New Angeles project, the lower levels of the city has remained in a sort of futuristic retro style era with fashion not moving beyond a decade or two past the turn of the twenty-first century. As the main objective in Los Angeles is to blend in, bright colors are kept a minimum. Like New Angeles, most clothes are stain/water/fading resistant, but with the addition of microfiber weaves designed to resist small caliber arms fire. Clothes are more utilitarian in use and do not mask the enhancement mods of those living in Los/Old Angeles. However, those with CIS (Cybernetic Incompatibility Syndrome) often bare the scars of implant rejection, thus prompting the use of LED and traditional ink tattoos to hide them. While most communication hardware are planted sub-dermal in New Angeles, users in the lower levels still use pieces similar to a Bluetooth device.
