    At the airport ready to leave. Just a random observation. Seems like there should be some standard set for entering a resort. Maybe after 5pm collared shirts for the men, (ex) I saw folks in the casinos in ripped shorts,tanktops, bathing suits. I mean you go to play golf you need to dress the part a little .

    NO

    I have my own dress standard that I apply to myself; it's none of my business what others do.

    Why can't people just let others be who they want to be?! Why should it effect anyone else how someone else in the casino is dressed? It just blows my mind.

    If I ran a casino and someone wants to sit down to 6:5 BJ at $500 a hand, I have zero interest in what clothes they are wearing.

    Nope. Casino's will take anybody's money, they don't discriminate.

    I am also in the no category.

    Kinda related story: Two weeks ago some friends and I went to dinner at Mizumi at the Wynn and they told one of my friends he couldn't dine wearing shorts. He went back up to the room to put some pants on and we gave him hell about that for the rest of the trip. The hostess did suggest they had some pants he could borrow if he did not want to go back to his room. Part of me wishes he had done that just to see how ridiculous he would have looked

    That happened to me, once. We were told that we could not eat at the restaurant at the time because I was wearing shorts. I looked at the mostly empty restaurant and said to my husband, "Let's go to xxxxx, instead." As we turned away the matre d' said, "We can seat you so it won't be noticable." and they sat us.

    Absolutely not. My money spends the same as yours and that's all casino's care about anyway. :)

    I prefer to gamble my $$$ in comfort. I'm not there to appease others by my appearance. Sweatpants in the winter, shorts and tshirt during the summer.

    I have to admit there's a part of me that has some nostalgia for the old Vegas photos of men in suits and women in gowns and pearls. However, I'm not really any kind of fashionista. I'm not a slob, but I don't tend to really dress up much. I'd probably have to find another city to visit for my gambling if a dress code was implemented in Vegas.

    I do like to dress up on occasion for a nice meal or a night out, but it's rare. We went to a nice dinner at a restaurant that had a "dress code" and were a little disappointed they seated a table of men in shorts and flip flops at the table next to us.

    One of the things I enjoy about Vegas is that you can do/be/wear whatever feels best for you. I like going out at night and seeing people dressed to the nines, and others in their sweatpants and t-shirts. Whatever works for you, I guess. I'm toying with the idea of bringing my tiara to Vegas, but I'm afraid everyone will think I'm a bachelorette. :haha:
