‘GQ’ Names the Worst Dressed Cities in America


The blazer-loving editors over at GQ just released a list of the 40 most “sartorially challenged metropolises” in America, and we’re saddened to report that all of Flavorpill’s favorite cities — from Los Angeles (“Fantasy-dressing reigns: men dress like boys, women like tweens, and middle-aged women like the trophy wives they once were”) to Dallas (“Forget J.R. Ewing. The 21st century Big D douchebag favors Fight Club frosted tips and whisked jeans over Stetsons and ostrich-skin boots”) to Seattle (“The city that made plaid cool is somehow still wearing it, 20 years post-Nevermind“) — made the cut, so to speak. Click through to see where your hometown falls on the list, and let us know if you agree with these seemingly random rankings in the comments.
