Okay, at the risk of ragging on my city . . . well, more ragging on this magazine, you guys have to see this garbage. Obviously the author is a nut, these people, with the notable exception of Carl Sterr and Rhonda Walker, are either dressed flat-out horribly or else inappropriately for their body types . . . in my opinion mind you.

Go ahead, check it out . . .

Looking only at the men: I thought a fair few were ok. If anything, I thought Carl Sterr was not up to scratch, buttoning point too high, big armholes. There were a lot of DBs in the bunch. Danny Victor, page two on the far right was probably the best dressed overall.

Makes me sad theses are the best dressed of my city. Some of them were ok though. I'd have to agree with yf that Danny Victor was the best dressed, only one that I really notice out of the bunch. Lots of DB's considering I rarely see any DB's.

Are you kidding? This city is loaded with douchebags. It stands to reason that a few would make it on this list.

Ouch!

However, I've seen both Fieger and Sterr dressed in ensembles that look pretty good--I guess those outfits were at the dry cleaners or something when the photoshoot was taken.

Now, for true comic relief they should do a story on the best dressed people my hometown: Ann Arbor!

Fieger looks like he's about ready to get all I Dream of Genie on the photographer.

I thought that list of people started out OK, but after page 2 it went downhill a bit. Well-dressed for the most-part, but perhaps not "best" dressed.

This looks like it should be best dressed from 1978, not 2008. What a timewarp. I know most of the creatives at Hour, so this doesn't surprise me.

It is funny that the #1 is Chauncy... who has since returned to his home town of Denver to play for the Nuggets.

Maybe AI will be the best dressed next year.

Those are some hot girls on page 8! Danny Victor is probably the best dressed of the depicted men.

Beat me to it. I've taken a particular liking to Jennifer Knapp. Not usually into the short haired look but she pulls it off extremely well.

Agreed, although his barber/stylist should be shot.
