America’s Worst Dressed Cities

GQ Magazine has compiled a list of the 40 worst dressed cities in the U.S.A, and they didn’t go easy. Here are the top 5.

  1. Boston
    It’s hard to be a fashion capital when half of your population is made up of undergraduate hoodie monsters, including those unfortunate coeds who don’t realize that leggings-as-pants were supposed to be paired with tops large enough to conceal their cameltoes. 
  2. Los Angeles
    Why should we expect Angelenos to ever recover from the aesthetic thrill of Ed Hardy? It’s smart if you think about it, why actually get a full body tattoo when you can buy the sartorial equivalent of one.
  3. Pittsburgh
    There is no city on Earth that can equal the utter sloppiness of Pittsburgh.
  4. Chicago
    The Parka Pierogi. Ingredients: Blown-out Nikes; torn cargoes; favorite novelty T-shirt; Bears/Bulls/Blackhawks hoodie—all wrapped up in a totally nondescript parka.
  5. Manhattan
    For every strike of greatness, there is an equal force of evil at work. Consider the Nine-Bro. You know, the pack of nine guys who walk down the street in unison, should-to-shoulder, outfitted in tacky black “Go Out” button-downs, embroidered denim, and product-inspired conflagrations on their head.

Other New York cities that made the list: Buffalo at #25 and Brooklyn at #11 .
