AGE AND INCOME MATTER After determining which cities had the highest percentage of restaurants with a "business casual" or better dress code, we learned that the Average Median Age & Average Median Income in the Best Dressed cities was a bit higher than the national average. 67.4 49.2 45.4 43.6 41.3 38.7 Median Age (National) 36.2 34.1 32.3 28.7 Median Income (National) Conversely, these numbers are lower than average in the Most Casual cities, except for one: Sonoma, California. For some reason, folks in Sonoma don't like to dress up, even though they're just as wealthy and just as mature as people in America's best dressed cities. All income and age data sourced from 2010 US Census. Dress code data provided by All efforts were made to develop an accurate infographic. However, some income and median age data provided by the census is localized in mysterious manner, so we make no guarantee about the absolute accuracy of this graphic (although we believe it is accurate).
