Five Reasons San Franciscans Have No Style

Posted By on Thu, Jul 14, 2011 at 2:30 PM

San Franciscans might be total sluts, but we definitely do not attract our partners based on the way we dress. According to GQ magazine, San Francisco ranked No. 20 on the list of the worst-dressed cities in America.

It's a headscratcher to us, considering we are No. 1 in so many other ways. But being an environmental steward driving a hybrid vehicle clearly doesn't translate into being fashionable. A cursory glance around the newsroom to see what other reporters were wearing today hasn't helped our defense.

But perhaps these are some reasons we seem to have bad fashion sense:

1. We're too close to nerds in Silicon Valley: Those brainiacs down south -- you know, the Mark Zuckerberg types -- are rubbing off on us. It's a weird twist. We are smart enough to invent things that make us loads of money, yet we are stumped when it comes to shelling out money on something other than hoodies and jeans? Whatever.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
