What you say is not problematic unless you authored that ranking.

I personally dont think as a whole, Miami is a better dressed city than Dallas, Atlanta or Houston. I find it the least dressy of the 4.

Miami may have more brand name wh*res but that doesnt auromatically equate to being more stylish.

Except, Houston doesn't even have an Apparel Mart, like the ones in Dallas and Atlanta. The latter two cities are much stronger regional fashion centers.

Miami -----> Dallas --> Atlanta ---> Houston

Well, it depends on how you look at it; are we ranking cities based on how many brand name stores they have; or are we ranking based on how people in the cities actually dress? Consideration also has to be given to innovative fashion.

You are going to have to take it up with the study, and their methodology in ranking these cities, not me.

People are too fat in Houston to be fashionable. Only recently has it not been the "fattest city in the country" and that was after years of claiming that title.

I personally don't think Houston is a fashionable city, but I honestly don't consider it a bad thing. Houston is the most laid back of all the major cities in the south. People are comfortable in whatever clothes they have on. So while Houston isn't as fashion forward as the other three major cities in the South, its not necessarily a bad thing.
