Casual clothing question

Postby darkeclipse » Mon Apr 23, 2012 3:03 pm

I am going on my first trip in 2 weeks and have a question about casual clothing. I think it was mentioned in some email sent to me but not in the description of what to bring. I dont mind bringing extra clothes but for casual pants I would need shoes and to carry them for 2 weeks but to wear only once would be overkill.

Comments are greatly appreciated.

PS. Found the reference - It is important to pack clothes for warm days and cool evenings, as well as a light jacket. A set of smart casual clothes is also advisable.

I'm thinking you could probably get away with Cargo pants and say some type of runners or trekking shoes. I certainly wouldn't bring dress shoes lol.

Thanks, that's what I thought also. I can bring slacks and shoes but dont see a point if I will use them only once. I'll bring black jeans and maybe black sneakers that will look casual.

You can get away with running shoes at all but the poshest night clubs in any of those four cities.

If you want to go to clubs, bring some dressier clothes. Otherwise you will fit in wearing the North American "costume" for guys-ball cap, logo t-shirt and cargo shorts/pants!
In Las Vegas a lot of people dress up a bit for the casinos, shows and clubs. But there are so many other people who wear very casual clothing. I haven't been to California.
