...we wanted to point out a few cities around the world that certainly have potential, yet aren’t exactly knocking it out of the park just yet.

Bows-n-Ties.com, a prominent, well-known online retailer of men’s ties, today announced plans to publish a series focusing on the 10 worst-dressed cities in the world. Featuring only one American city (Maui, HI), the series looks mostly at international locations ranging from Europe to Asia.
“In the past, readers have responded very positively to the ‘best-dressed’ series we’ve published, so we figured it might be fun to take a look at the other side of the spectrum,” says Bows-N-Ties founder Hendrik Pohl. “After all, there are a lot of cities around the world that are completely synonymous with high fashion; Paris, New York and Milan instantly come to mind. This time we wanted to point out a few cities around the world that certainly have potential, yet aren’t exactly knocking it out of the park just yet.”
The series will consist of 10 unique pieces, each of which will focus on a specific city. Highlighted locations span the globe, and include Bucharest, Helsinki, Sydney and Ottawa. Dublin, Manchester and Beijing also make the list, each highlighted for their own unique fashion idiosyncrasies. Three different aspects of fashion faux pas per city are addressed, although Pohl wants to make clear the fact that it’s all in good fun.
“As with all of the more controversial article series we publish, we’re not trying to offend anyone with this list; we’re simply trying to get a few laughs,” says Pohl. “Each of these cities actually has a great deal of potential to become relatively well-received in the world of fashion if they were to make the right steps, so it’s not as if they’re doing everything wrong. Basically, there are just a few trends that have taken hold in each city that we feel could stand to go.”
In the past, Bows-n-Ties has published a variety of different “best-dressed” and “worst-dressed” lists, including those focusing on award shows, professional athletes and geographical locations.
“These article series are more popular than we could ever have expected, and our readers have responded exceptionally well to them,” says Pohl. “As fashion experts, it’s our job to educate while still adding an element of fun to the process, which is exactly what we’re going for with the articles that we publish. It’s amazing just how much there is to talk about in the world of fashion, and our readers are hungry to learn as much as possible about the current state of the industry.”
