¿Qué usan los mexicanos para vestir?


Explanation:
Creo que puede ser una opción, pues usamos diferentes clases de ropas en cada estado además por lo variado de su clima... la gente de la costa usa ropa ligera. al norte es extremoso, a veces hace frío y hay que usar ropa de invierno, en la capital, los mexicanos usamos de todo...
La pregunta no parece concreta en español... Usar es la mejor opción

?Qué usan los mexicanos?


Explanation:
?Cómo se visten los mexicanos? en este contexto la pregunta es muy vaga, le falta el complemento como:

?Cómo se visten los mexicanos para ir al cine?

?Cómo se viste los mexicanos para bailar en la disco?
et., etc.


    I am very mexican
