Top 40 Worst-Dressed Cities: Did Yours Make the Cut?

FlickrGQ has released its list of the top-40 worst dressed cities in America -- at least as far as men's fashion is concerned. From GQ.com:

After a deeply scientific, irrefutable poll, we gathered, analyzed, and ranked the most sartorially-challenged metropolises in the greater United States.

Heh.

I'm sure they were hard-pressed to narrow the list down to just 40 cities. Men are notoriously awful dressers, no matter where they live.

Double denim, anyone? How about an ushanka thrown in for good measure?

I'm personally offended Nashville made the cut. The writer was correct in saying that cowboy boots often replace dress shoes, and sometimes even sneakers. But this statement about my fair city's men folk is patently false:

"[B]y 'tie' they mean the leather shoestring thing your nephew wears in Boy Scouts."

Um, excuse me, 'Mark Anthony Green,' but have you ever actually been to Nashville? Because the "leather shoestring thing" is not a look I've ever seen on anyone here besides my husband. And he's crazy.

Also, seriously? A photo of Billy Ray Cyrus from 1991? You couldn't find anything more recent? GAH.

So, ladies, is your town on this list? And do you agree with GQ's assessment or disagree?
