The 10 Worst-Dressed Cities in America
The GQ staff recently put out a list of the 40 worst-dressed cities in the nation. To avoid future L's, they suggest taking a look at yourself and the people around you. A lot of the places named come as a surprise. Does your city fall on the list?
10. St. Louis - Note to the "derrty" city, saggy baggy cloths have retired.
9. Miami - The heat is no excuse. Even less clothing can become an issue. By the way, if you've fell victim, please toss the over-worn whites and stretched tanks and beaters.
8. Salt Lake City - Mistakes are understandable and forgiven when trying to figure out how to adjust to the weather here. At one point in the city you can be hot, and at another you can be cold. But the whole socks and sandals movement? No. Pick one.
7. Maui - Linen drawstring pants and oversized floral print shirts. Need we say more?
6. Philadelphia - The city of brotherly love. Even when it isn't game day, you might still see a few Phillies and Eagles fanatics in cheesesteak stained jerseys. There's a time and place.
5. Manhattan - The city that was once considered one of the world's fashion capitals, is no more. The abstract style has gone far beyond edgy and cute, and the hipsters have taken over. The style of tourists' with their "I love NY" shirts might make it hard on passerbys too.
4. Chicago - Nikes plus torn cargos and t-shirts = an overstayed welcome. The relaxed style is only acceptable sometimes.
3. Pittsburgh - GQ calls the Burgh's style a little sloppy. So sloppy that even long winter coats can't hide the rough beards, offensive shirts, ripped jeans and tube socks.
2. Los Angeles - LA tries to stunt. Some do, some can. But for the others, let's just say flashy is not always fly.
1. Boston - A slightly rowdy group here, styles from all around seem to be put together in one outfit. Not always a good choice.
