GQ just posted a tongue-in-cheek piece on the The 40 Worst-Dressed Cities in America and, of course, they totally slammed SF-style. What? Are our hipsters and our hoodlums dressed in over-sized Giants gear not good enough for you?

Okay, first of all, I don’t know the last time I’ve even seen someone with REI gear. This isn’t Portland. What do we look like – a bunch of outdoorsy campers? Why would I need an REI jacket to work on my computer when a perfectly suitable gray sweatpant outfit would suffice? Really, let’s be realistic here.
She goes on to classify our style as “aggressively casual and understated” and that we “eschew sartorial frivolity of any kind (like color, for example) in favor of the highly practical and high performing.” Whatever, lady.
Well, at least we’re smart. And I rather be smart than poorly-dressed.
