So I'm going over to Europe for about 40 days and do not want to look like the average American tourist. Here is what I think European fashion is like from talking to people who have lived there for a bit.
1. Clothes are tight fitting (unlike in the u.s.).
2. leather shoes are in, no tennis shoes.
3. absolutely no shorts
4. "designer" jeans

My main question is what shoes will look good like if I were to go a club? Do they really wear "dress" leather shoes or will a pair of street Nikes work?

They all wear pillowcases and tissue boxes on their feet...

Seriously though, "they" aren't a different species man.

Casual wear is pretty much exactly the same as in the US.

The only exception is that some countries (for instance Spain) DO require you to wear dress shoes into clubs. Loafers are also acceptable.

Other than that, wear sneakers, hi-tops, sandals, the innards of a baby tyrannosaurus rex, whatever.

Street Nikes will be fine if they're not yellow and red with huge soles. Simple white, blue or black street models are okay. Young people also wear what you'd call a hybrid between leather shoes and sneakers (although they look more like close-fitting classy sneakers), often black. Hard to explain, I was absolutely unable to find anything similar when I was in North Carolina.

You are right in saying that clothes are worn more tight fitting than in the US, but don't overdo it. Straight leg jeans, a white/black/blue shirt and decent street shoes will do just fine if you're going to a club. People do wear leather shoes in clubs, but it's your choice and it's not a rule set in stone. Absolutely no shorts of course, but for walking in the streets it's totally okay. So are sports tennis shoes.

Oh yeah and this probably goes only for major French cities, especially Paris. Might be different in Southern Europe, etc.

These things only go for france. In Germany and Austria, nobody gives a crap what you wear, and tons of people wear shorts to clubs here with bright-colored sneakers.

So basically, dress like a flaming homo.

The people on the continent of Europe dress like shit. Germans, Belgians, French. So you can wear whatever the **** you want and still come out on top in those horrific countries.

Oh you're american. You'll be average I guess.

And yes, because wearing clothes that fit and actually look good is being gay and wearing a potato sack and mismatched clothes are clearly being straight and not just being a ****ing retard.

Lol, last time I lived in Spain (which will be the last 10 YEARS) I never heard such a stupidity. You are not allowed into a club/bar/resturant/disco without a t-shirt, but shoes are optional.

In the UK if you go to a "good" club they usually have rules banning trainers of any kind. Some also specify no jeans but those are generally the more "upmarket" clubs, I've also been to one where you needed a collared shirt.


NB: By "good" I mean a club where you won't get stabbed.

I'm from England and I always wear shorts and tennis shoes and that's not common, but it's not weird either

Just wear decent shirts, pants, & shoes. Jesus, it's not terribly difficult to dress well.
Yeah seriously. I'm sure as long as you're not wearing a football jersey, pink tights, and not waving an American flag around, no one will probably notice you, you damn foreigner. (I kid about the "foreigner" part; I'm foreign too )
#21
Wear jeans and a shirt like normal people do here in North America. I hate it when douche bags try and over dress.

Don't try to fit in. Be as American as you possibly can. Be proud of where you're from. Shove it in their faces.

It sure as hell was like that in Alicante

Seriously, my friends were all dressed up and had sneakers on, and were not let in. I was wearing a hawaii shirt and dress shoes and they said I could enter.

Silly Spaniards.

EDIT: I now realise that that might have been Alicante's way of fucking with tourists.

They've just invented clothing in most parts of Europe. Especially in the more civilised Western part of Europe. But you'll be fine wearing bear fur or tree bark anywhere in the EU.
#29
pffft why do you want to try to emulate those namby pambys?

heres what you do TS. you get yourself a jean jacket, american flag banana, a bruce springsteen t-shirt, and a pair of tight fitting jeans with the knees ripped out. whatever restaurant you go to, order nothing but burgers and fries. whenever you have to interact with the foreigners, make sure you talk really slowly and really loudly so they can understand you. also dont trust any of those local gross beers they will try to pawn off on you. insist on quality, insist on budwiser. if they dont have it, complain loudly. remember, you are the customer and the customer is always right.

you gotta represent yo.

Dress like a normal person. Most people here in Europe do this and it seems to work well.

The only difference is that Englishmen have automatically air-conditioned feet; must've been the reason that they didn't have a ****ing pair of more summer-friendly shoes.

America have thrusted his dick on Europe too much during the 20th century, so as an American, you'll be fine; just remember, Europeans are more reserved. In Norway, if a stranger talks to us, he's either drunk, American, or both.

Dude, just wear the stuff you normally wear. Thanks to globalization, internationalism, world culture and all that fancy stuff, western cultures at least dress pretty much the same all around the world.


Going to a club:

- going to an indie/rock club or bar (I personally prefer that): Mostly there is no dress code, because they want to set them apart from all the "wanna-be-exclusive"-clubs, which leads us to...

- going to an "exclusive / hot-people-only"-club: Dress code requires a longsleeve button shirt, some nice jeans (not necessarily designer, just not baggy) and a pair of nice shoes (can't go wrong with leather). Don't look like (for lack of a better word) a typical metal fan. No long hair, no beard. I didn't mean to insult metal fans, I just wanted to say "You have to look conformist and look exactly like all the "beautiful and cool" people in those fashion magazines".
And BTW, all the above mentioned things still won't get you anywhere if you don't have girl with you. Try to ask some nice ladies before the club if they could tell the bouncer that you're with them. Perhaps they'll even want to get to know you better...


I am from central europe and these are my experiances.

You can literally wear whatever you want. No one will care.
If you really want to look European though, avoid baggy clothing. That's about it. When I walk around I can hardly tell who's American and who isn't.
Also, dress like a hipster. There are loads of hipsters around here.
