Seattle Jargon?

The Morning News offers up a list of New York jargon, but one of the items is suspiciously applicable to Seattle:

Patagroupie (noun): A city-dweller who wears mountaineering clothing for doing laundry or grocery shopping. [#]

Uh huh. So how about you, dear readers? Have any of your own Seattle jargon?

    My friends in Boulder use the term "prowhore" for the same thing.

    patagroupie is really unfair to other brands of outdoor wear. Columbia’s omni-dri t-shirts are also really awesome for laundry day.

    Alternate jargon – "whore-tex"; denoting outdoor clothing worn by a person who never actually goes camping/hiking/backpacking/climbing/fishing.
