GQ Magazine had me lost for words after I found out that the city I love and call home,Atlanta, was voted one of the worst-dressed cities in the United States. GQ asked, ” Look around you. Better yet, look in the mirror. Are you the victim? After a deeply scientific, irrefutable poll, we gathered, analyzed, and ranked the most sartorially-challenged metropolises in the greater United States”. Here’s what they had to say about ATL which was voted number 17:

“17. Atlanta is the Mecca of the promotional T-shirt. Everyone is a CEO or founder of a record label or a clothing line you’d have never heard of if it weren’t plastered in size 96 Helvetica font on their chest. The pleats in Atlantan’s pants are deeper than the Chocolate Rain kid’s voice and their blazers look like hand-me-downs, because they are hand-me-downs. In the A, there is nothing wrong with wearing uncle Ned’s seersucker suit to the shindig in October—fit, be damned.”—Mark Anthony Green

Are they are just saying that cause Atlanta is filled with nothing but Black people?  Hmm…who said my white tee and Levi’s makes me a bad dresser? LOL!

If it makes anybody else who is a native of Atlanta feel better, Las Vegas ranked No. 13 on GQ magazine’s “Worst-Dressed Cities in America” list, which was released this week. The magazine plans to release its top 10 on Friday. Here are some more cities that made the list.

31. Detroit

30. Cleveland

26. Orlando, FL

25. Buffalo

24. Saint Paul, MN

23. Dallas

21. Houston

20. San Francisco

19. Jersey Shore

18. Austin

13. Las Vegas

12. New Orleans

11. Brooklyn

What city do you think will take the number one spot for worst dressed? How do you feel about Atlanta being named the 17th worst dressed city?

  1. Really not surprise about this, Atlanta has the most male gays. Men dressing like women is not the look, don’t have anything against gays, to each it’s own, but it is what it is. That is not cute, muscles in skinnys and netted tops. It looks a HOT MESS………..

  2. hahahahahaha. i cudda told u that. atlanta has and always will be country, yet everyone thinks their s#$# is fly. its actually funny. ppl can go dwn to atl and see stuff they aint neva seen before. women hair down there is erry color of the rainbowand flowing down to their ankles. its a HOT-COUNTRY-MESS. its like where to u work? lol men/boys dressed like women. ill visit but aint movin their

  3. Well, in my humble opinion I know that the people behind this article are not America’s opinion but just a select few! DC has a lot of diverse fashion (all races and sexual preferences) what I will say about it EVERYONE thinks they’re a model and will wear some of the weirdest clothing (i.e. vintage looking mess and men in skinny jeans). God help us but at least we’re past the drop socks, timbs and Nike Boots phase)!

  4. I live at the Jersey Shore and I’m black and I can tell you this all of us “DO NOT DRESS LIKE THOSE FOOLS YOU SEE ON MTV” they wouldn’t dare show us on their show but we don’t dress like two cent tricks on the weekend………nope not at all.

  5. GQ you got it right, “Some” of the fashions in the ATL are just down right stanky, especially the wardrobe of the “Hood Rats, Skank Bandits, and Multi-Colored Weave Wearing Sistas”. I agree 100%. Do better ATL.
