America is changing.  The advent of Mad Men, Suits and White Collar has created a more style conscious professional man.

In the last two years, search results for “Men’s Style” has increased over 20%.  Additionally, the Men’s market is growing at a rate 30% faster than the womenswear market.

We looked into America’s rise in menswear and wanted to see which cities were embracing the new standard.

We checked search results for “Men’s Style” regionally within the United States and backchecked our figures with apparel expenditures per person.  This allowed us to come up with the best dressed cities in America for men.

Not surprisingly NY and LA ranked as our top two cities, both having 45% and 35% more searches than our lowest contender.  We were surprised to see San Diego and Phoenix make the cut as they’re better known for their casual style than being trendsetters.

After finding the top ten, we looked at what set these men apart from other cities by looking at Bureau of Labor Statistic figures.

We found that these men tend to be paid very well, over 60% higher than the average American.  Additionally, their was some credence to the bachelor profile of well dressed men with the percentage of never married men being over 40% the national average.

We also wanted to take a look at which markets were the worst dressed.  We took the best search metric as the one with the most searches for a certain bedazzled shirt brand.  The top honor was given to Las Vegas followed by Irvine, CA and Richardson, TX.

New Jersey, of The Jersey Shore fame, was nowhere to be found, but overall the cities melded with the general consensus.
