Time for some more meaningless rankings. GQ magazine (yes, they still print it) says Kansas City, Missouri, is the 37th worst dressed city in America. Why are Kansas City's men so poorly dressed? Here's GQ's Christoper Swetala:
"How does a city that fathered its own style of jazz back in the 1930s dress with such little manly swagger? Yeah, you're a laidback town, part of that real America, and sure, eating sauce-covered burnt ends and pork ribs can be messy. But let's grow up. Throw out the old grimy-white Jayhawks ball cap -- or the beat-up black Mizzou one -- and buy some clothes that aren't so big that they make you look like a little boy waiting to grow into them. It's summer, so golf shirts and polos are great, but let's keep the sleeves above the elbows, the tail at the waist. It shouldn't hit your knees. And the khakis? Please, no puffy pleats, no sewn cuffs. Hey, we get it: Going out for a pitcher and beef-on-bun doesn't require a jazzy suit, but no matter how you swing it, oversized and billowy ain't cool."
Your best style suggestion is golf shirts and polos? Oh, I get it. We eat barbecue so we must be a bunch of fat asses. GQ, go fuck yourselves.
After perusing the mag's editor's picks, I don't trust GQ's sense of fashion -- at all. See below.
