Salt Lake City Named One Of The Top Ten Worst Dressed Cities …, GQ Magazine isn’t winning any friends in Utah. The men’s fashion publication just ranked Salt Lake City as the 8th worst dressed city in America. Provo isn’t far behind at number 15. The magazine editor says Salt Lake City scored low because of things like generic jeans, socks and sandals and people walking about in 2002 Olympic gear.
I went out to the Gateway Mall in Salt Lake City – the place where I purchased my 2002 Olympic gear – to see what people thought of the ranking. Angie Monson, who was at the mall with her kids says, “I go to LA and all these places and I think we’re behind.” She followed that with, “I think the kids are dressed nice here. The kids look pretty cute. It’s the parents that forget to take care of ourselves.” Then she commented on how I was dressed. “I like the tie – its different. Not just stripes. Good job.” I thanked her for the approval.
Kristi Warden, who is visiting from Florida was surprised by the ranking. “I thought everybody was dressed normal. In Florida we only wear shorts and t-shirts. That’s it. Even when we go out for dinner.”
Recent Washington, D.C. transplant Lane Fletcher had a much different take. “Nobody knows fashion. Everyone is lax and lazy. T-shirt and hoodie and they’re good.”
Ryanne Thompson, who was enjoy the water fountain with her young daughter says, “I disagree. I think everyone dresses very nicely. We are not starting any trends, but we aren’t bad.”
Chris Allison stayed away from saying too much about fashion and instead complimented Salt Lake City’s people. “Our sense of fashion may be lacking here. But I’d say, per capita, I’ve never lived in a place that has more beautiful people.”
Here are the top ten offenders, according to GQ Magazine.
10. St. Louis
8. Salt Lake
2. Los Angeles
