Terrorism, war, global recessions, and The Jersey Shore - we
don't have to tell you the 21st century sucks. Maybe that's why we're into looking
backward right now, whether it's watching Don Draper throw back old-fashioneds or the
Earl of Grantham scowl theatrically. Thanks to vintage stores, we can stack our
closets with threads from better decades to wash away those 2013 blues.
2011 GQ magazine named Boston the worst dressed city in America. Caught
with their slim-fitting, flat-front chinos down, Boston's sartorialists sought to redeem this city in 2012. Luckily, it turns out that there are plenty of outfitters in this town
that cater to discerning gentlemen. From icons like Bobby's from Boston to
upstarts like Ball & Buck, and innovators like a mobile streetwear truck,
these nominees brought style and swagger back to Boston's streets.
