We're #1! We're #1! ... but for once, it's not such a good thing.
GQ named Boston first in their list of the 40 Worst-Dressed Cities in America.
What's their argument?
Branded flip-flops from a Sam Adams giveaway, distressed jeans baggy enough to shelter a family of four, undershirt with vomit stains from latest Boston sporting event, a print collared shirt two sizes two large, hair gel, Boston Red Sox baseball cap. Boston is like America's Bad-Taste Storm Sewer: all the worst fashion ideas from across the country flow there, stagnate, and putrefy.
But to be fair, they threw us this bone:
it's hard to be a fashion capital when half of your population is made up of undergraduate hoodie monsters.
Are we the worst dressed city in America? Is GQ -- a New York-based publication -- biased? Does this have something to do with a certain Sox/Yankees rivalry? Are students ruining our street style cred? Thoughts?
