    Pretty sure that picture is out of an 80s catalogue. To me that is dress down Friday attire.

    But each to their own.

    We ate the Eiffel Tower a couple years ago and when we made reservations they made a big deal about dress code. When we got there they put us in the elevator with a guy in jeans, cowboy boots and a t shirt. When we got to the top I made a lot of noise about the dress code and lack of enforcement. We ended up with a great table not sure where the other guy sat.
    Bottom line if you have cash or plastic in your pocket they'll let you in.

    People who schlub around wearing inappropriate clothing just love to use the lines "we are just casual kinds of people" and "my money spends as good as theirs". What they're actually doing is demonstrating how little regard they have for others. All the money in the world can't make someone act classy, but it doesn't cost a thing to choose classy behavior for yourself.

    You can hate that outfit, but that is smart casual. If a restaurant calls for it you should expect to see people dressed like that. Personally I think it's wrong to deride other diners as under-dressed when they are meeting the requirements asked by the restaurant. If that makes you uncomfortable than you should vote with your dollars and take your business elsewhere.

    For what it's worth, I've been to Top of The World for dinner 6+ times. Each time, at least one person in our party wore nice jeans and a button down shirt with dress shoes. Never had any problems . . .

    That's what I figured. We aren't back woods, country folk. He just wears nice jeans and button downs to work. I see it silly to buy a pair of khakis to wear once!

    Thanks for everyone's input.

    While I appreciate your input, I have never paid any attention to what others are wearing. I'm there for dinner with my husband and could care less about what other people are doing. Although you are certainly entitled to your opinion....I guess we can agree to disagree :peace:

    I just checked Top of the World's website, and it says "business casual" for dinner. Therefore, I do not think jeans are appropriate even if you can get away with it.

    That said, someone wearing jeans wouldn't impact the enjoyment of my meal there.

    The bottom line is - for better or worse - pretty much anything goes in Vegas today [even if personally I'm in the "for worse" camp]

    But in light of the ongoing debate, just thought I'd throw this link into the mix: :stir:

    http://www.eatinglv.com/2010/09/slobs-at-le-cirque/

    [though it should also be noted that the "slobs" in the link above are in fact both wearing khakis - so the question of proper attire really does come down to more than jeans vs. no jeans]
