Poll names Anchorage resident worst-dressed

Anchorage residents are apparently not dressing to impress.

That's the upshot of Travel and Leisure Magazine's reader poll, which put the residents of Alaska's largest city as the least stylish in the nation.

The magazine ran an online poll asking readers to rank 35 American cities on such things as best nightlife, best burgers, best New Year's Eve celebrations, etc.

Anchorage just barely nudged out Salt Lake City for having the worst-dressed residents.

Anchorage residents say they don't dress to impress. Instead, they dress for the harsh winter climate and the plentiful outdoor activities Anchorage offers.

In fact, state of Alaska labor economist Neal Fried says Anchorage residents would be embarrassed if they were at the top of the fashion poll.

That spot, for the record, went to New York City.

    My daughter and son in law is stationed in Anchorage Alaska and being dressed to impress isn't on their minds. She says that it is a very beautiful place and loves it. They aren't there to be seen but there to enjoy their stay for three years while he is serving our country so who cares what clothing they have and how much it cost. They dress for the weather not for the people.
