    Just curious if most people dress up for dinner when you are in Vegas. We always go out to a nice place each night and I will wear nice clothes, dress pants shirt and jacket. I usually don't wear a tie...but we do kind of make an "event" out of the evening and dress up. What do you do?

    I will wear a Sportcoat with jeans, or slacks with a nice shirt. I use to dress up more, lately I have been trending more towards jeans with a nice button up shirt

    I'm as casual as they come, but I admire the folks who dress... I'm just not very comfortable in those clothes.

    I always wear a dress shirt, sometimes dress slacks and shoes where need be. Dont wear a jacket or sports coat in any "vacation" town . If that excludes me from certain places then so be it.

    Jeans and a sport coat is my usual for dinner. Sometimes I’ll throw on a tie…sometimes I’ll ditch the jacket. Pretty much depends on my mood and the restaurant.

    I like to dress up a bit for dinner, usually a dress or nice skirt and top and nicer shoes, similiar to something I would wear for dinner out at home.

    We dress up for fine dining (dinner, mostly).

    Otherwise, it's whatever we feel comfortable wearing.

    I am most comfortable dressed up for dinner, and in LV I believe it positively influences how I am treated since so many are dressed casually.

    Bf and I, at least I do, try to dress up because I'm in Vegas. I'm a frumpy dresser at home. I'm usually in sweats, gym shorts and big t-shirts. I hardly ever dress up and if I do, it's jeans and a tank top that's nice and put together.

    No tie, I think I only own one tie.
    I usually wear a nice pair of jeans (no holes, dark), decent shoes (nothing fancy) and a nice ironed button down shirt.
    I dress nice, but not fancy, pretty much business casual. Going to go with a sport coat this trip for dinner and show.

    The last time I remember getting really dressed up in Las Vegas was back maybe 12 years ago where a group of us did a very nice dinner, then the Folies show at Tropicana, then rented a limo, filled it with enough adult beverages to pollute the East River, and told the driver to just "do the Strip!" One of the best times I ever remember in Las Vegas.

    Every time this topic comes up I do think of how times have changed and how our customs have changed. Back in the 1970s, although casual in the daytime, evening was definitely dress-up time in Las Vegas. It was a dress or nicer coordinates for ladies, jacket and tie for men, few exceptions. A show was always a dress-up affair!

    Nowadays it's "shirt and shoes" as the dress code du jour!

    To dmr: I love that line about the East River. Kinda like what some of us who lived in New Haven said about the water near Lighthouse Park. THAT water was so hard ( and there was soooooooooo much "stuff" in it), you could be like our LORD and WALK ACROSS IT!!!:nworthy:

    At night I usually put on a nice button up with jeans and some nice dress shoes. Same attire I wear to just about any restaurant and any club.

    During the day it's usually tennis shoes, jeans, and a polo. (Usually a polo that has Texas Tech University on it....GUNS UP!).

    I wear a jacket every night and a tie most nights. i'll dress it down with jeans when the place is more casual and will do slacks when hitting a place like JR or Le Cirque. I enjoy getting dressed, so I take every opportunity to wear what I can.

    This is pretty much what I do, although the tie is less frequent. I wear nice jeans, a dress shirt, and a sport coat for dinner and/or gambling, and I'll go up a bit for Picasso -- usually a dark suit and tie with a pocket square, since I don't really get to get dressed up too often and like having the occasion. Plus, as was mentioned earlier, I feel like I get better treatment at the nicer places when I do that (although that might just be in my head).

    Or refer to NYC water as "Chunky Style!" :)

    My idea of dress up is to make sure there are no stains on my $95 T shirt - underwear - well that is fair game

    I played dress up a couple of times but now days it's all about comfort.
    Especially in the summer months. Plus I'm not a fine dining type person.
    So for me it's nothing but loose clothing and a good pair of walking shoes.
