According to Time magazine, that would be Philadelphia: "A recent study by Experian Marketing tracked how many sweats were purchased by residents in 209 market areas in the United States and found that Philadelphians tend to keep it casual. "Philadelphia is the highest ranking when it comes to the mean number of sweats and sweat items that are purchased each year," John Fetto, a researcher for Experian, told CBS News. This is Philadelphia’s second year in a row as the reigning champion of the sweatsuit rankings. Hartford, Conn., claimed the second highest spot this year, and Pittsburgh found itself in third place."

Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive.
