Highest-income places in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Its in the same vicinity as Hunting Valley. Stores like Cuffs Custom Clothing is in Chagrin Falls.

I based my list on extremely wealthy areas where people can afford to always wear nice cloths unlike basing it on some absurd idea that everyone in major metros wear nice clothing...

Or on Military facilities which by far should be winning this because every person on a military base is going to be clean pressed, shined, and polished.

You're not gonna find a world class model wearing Christian Dior walking down the street in Brownsville Brooklyn in front of the projects, or a world class model wearing Prada walking through Bankhead Courts or in the S.W.A.T.S. in Atlanta would you?

The average citizen isn't a "world class model", you don't have to be a "world class super diva" to have some fashion sense. That's why you don't hear 'bout goons in the north, 'cause nobody in their right mind would dress like that.

We don't hear about "goons" in the north because I don't you've adopted that term, not because you guys dress well. The average citizen in Miami is a goon now? I had no idea, thanks for letting me know. So you won't see anybody up north where any sort of white tees and baggy jeans? SO everybody up there is some skinny jean, fadora wearing person? HA!!! You guys think a little too highly of yourselves.

Islanders have definitely made their presence felt over the years, and I know what you mean about Miami, the dreadlocks are very sloppy idk how these guys don't die from sweat in the summertime.
not all the guys in florida wear those type of dreads. I live in Daytona for 2 years. I was in school so I knew people from all over FL. Those dreads are mainly just Miami/south florida thing. Duval,Tampa,Tallahassee, and most central and northern Florida guys wear the clean cut dread look. They look nice most of the time to me

Yeah, Haitians get respect in SoFla now. Ever sense all these artist started shooting music videos in Little Haiti, and all these artist claiming Zoe Pound, all of a sudden EVERYONE'S Haitian or has Haitians in there videos. There was a rumor that Lil Wayne was Haitian. I debunked that one quickly.
