This nation is in desperate need of a make-over and Bows-n-Ties.com is the web site for the job!”
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 01, 2012
Bows-n-Ties.com, the popular online retailer specializing in men’s accessories, has named the top five most fashion-challenged cities in the United States. The folks behind Bows-n-Ties.com scoured the country, from the mountains to the prairies and from sea to shining sea, looking for the cities with the worst dressed male populations in the land. Three eastern cities, one southern and one northwestern earned the distinction.
“Our research shows that America is the land of the free and the home of the brave and the poorly styled,” says Bows-n-Ties.com founder Hendrik Pohl. “This nation is in desperate need of a make-over and Bows-n-Ties.com is the web site for the job!”
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania earned the number five spot in the list. A center of the steel industry and that favorite American pastime, football, Pittsburgh has contributed much to the greatness of the United States. Yet, the inexcusably distasteful uniform of the Pittsburgh man—backwards caps, football jerseys and the exceptionally horrible stonewashed denim shorts—lands Pittsburghers on the worst dressed list.
“When you’re not heading to a football game, there’s no reason to dress like you are,” says Pohl. “Even Pittsburgh’s football team itself is made to look like a bunch of bumble bees. What this city needs is some color. Bows-n-Ties.com carries neck and bow ties in just about every color of the rainbow. We’d like to see Pittsburgh men step out of their comfort zones with some pastels!”
Landing in the number four spot is that hotbed of indie rock, Austin, Texas. Best known as the quintessential American college town, Austin’s chief exports are music and flavorful BBQ and Tex-Mex cuisine. The food is great, but the fashion could use some spicing up. Austinites may pride themselves for going against the grain, but the average Austinite’s “gutter punk” style is far from original.
“For Austinites, we recommend sprucing things up with one of our mens silk scarves once in a while,” advises Pohl. “Everybody else can have spiked leather collars, but you’re sure to be the only one at the show wearing an ascot. The groupies will love a man who stands out from the crowd.”
The third place dressed-to-unimpress town is none other than Burlington, Vermont, where men regularly confuse hemp as something that should be worn.
“Hemp-based garments are not only ugly, but a fine waste of cannabis. Unless they are being worn for medicinal purposes, they should be illegal,” declares Pohl. “Burlington needs to be exposed to more fine fabrics like silk.”
