    Ok i'm mostly a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy(no funny ones, just plain t-shirt, v-neck, various colors).

    Usually wearing boots(motorcycle),

    Work for me is casual, jeans, sneakers are acceptable. Polo style of shirt, something nicer but not needing to be real fancy, just nicer than a plain shirt.

    Of course I own a couple of suits, hell even own my own tuxedo.

    Plans are mostly walking through the casinos, going to see the show 'Fantasy' one night with a local friend. No real fancy dinner since I'm going solo, but you never know.

    I want to be comfortable, but don't want to get caught as the odd man out if I end up in the right place with the wrong attire


    46 year old male here, clean cut. Will probably be drinking at some bars, I highly doubt I'll go clubbing but that's a possibility. Being solo here I never quite know what my nights will or won't bring.

    Looking for suggestions on what I should bring to wear.

    Obviously I'll jeans(nicer ones) walking shoes(sneaker of some sort), a light coat since it's cold at night, casual t-shirts.

    Going next week(11/30-12/4) so while I'm sure I own everything I may need, I don't really want to overpack for a 5 day trip.

    collared shirts are more versatile at night than t-shirts.

    also, it's fairly cool in casinos, so some people like long sleeves or a light jacket indoors.

    if you want something that's appropriate for just about anywhere at night, you'd have a button-up shirt, nice jeans and non-sneaker shoes.

    Jeans, sneakers and tshirts will only be a problem in nightclubs or really high end restaurants. My husband usually packs one button down shirt and some slacks with a pair of semi-dressy shoes like Timberlands or something similar in case we go out somewhere fancy. I think you'll be fine based on what you described.

    Hi,

    I will also be there next week solo and the forecast is for highs of 11 and lows of 3 (C).
    So pack a bit warmer than you were thinking!

    thanks for the feedback.

    I've always been of the mindset that I'm on vacation, I'm going to be comfortable.

    That being said, being single and solo, I don't want to turn away even some basic conversation by looking underdressed for a place I'm at.

    In any case, some nice pants, wingtip shoes and a dress shirt or two will be added to my bag.

    Thats a good idea! In this day and time jeans will however be acceptable at any nightclub or restaurant in Vegas as long as they are not baggy, torn or rugged ones. Just use your common sense, a nice button down with dark jeans and dress shoes will be acceptable everywhere.
