Travel + Leisure Names America’s Worst Dressed Cities

Magazine we’ve still never seen Travel + Leisure has released its supposedly annual list of America’s worst dressed cities. The winner of this dubious distinction? Anchorage, the reason being that it’s real cold up there:

In chilly Anchorage, the dress code leans toward practicality rather than fashion, and many residents teeter through the streets bundled as tightly as Randy, the kid brother in A Christmas Story. Fashion trends take longer to reach this hinterland, but travelers are happy to make the trek regardless—especially in summer—and rated the city No. 4 for peace and quiet.

We’d say that’s pretty understandable.

Rounding out the bottom five were Salt Lake City, Baltimore, Orlando and San Antonio.
