Does how you dress as a driver impact your tips?

I am curious, has anyone played around with your dress style and whether or not you received more tips? I am not about to go put on a suit and tie but if it made me significantly more money, well then....

    Well, the answer is definitely yes, right?  If the dude is wearing ripped up clothes and just totally crappy, I may not tip as much thinking he just doesn't care. 

    Caring matters.  Respect your job and hose around you.

      Nah, I think the OP is talking about dressing up. Not wearing puke covered clothes. 

      I think the answer to that is, nah, I don't care. Just be good at driving, be polite, and get me there

    From a rider's perspective, yes well dressed drivers will win points and I bet tipping will be affected positively. Maybe not even consciously but subconsciously. N

    Significant more money?  I will wear anything, tin foil hat, steak over my shoulders, Barney the dinosaur costume, I don't care.  Nothing but diapers? Pay me more and I'll do it

      I'll do all those plus more to get paid. It beats yelling at Uber who never listen anyway. 

      I do dress nice btw. I feel like it's expected. Collar and khakis at least.

    I see most posters saying yes, but...  Maybe I got something to learn here. One of the things I love about being an Uber driver is that I can wear anything I want. Things super comfortable. Remember we drive hours and hours a day

    Sneakers and sweat, baby. I drive an UberX not UberBlack

    I don't even notice what my driver is wearing. For all I know, they aren't wearing pants. And I don't ever check.

    As a rider, if my Uber driver is well dressed, opens doors for me, and generally makes me feel valued, then ya, I would give a better tip. But if they were well dressed and still a jerk then the "dress" aspect would have no affect on me whatsoever.
