Another interesting observation: no one wears black anything either, even for shoes.
What do people wear at night, particularly to clubs?

Surprisingly black isn't popular at night either. White shirts with nice, colorfull check or strip pattern is mainly what's in right now; and of course big collars with many buttons on them. Other than that light blue. As for pants, jeans are worn at clubs. Don't get me wrong, people do wear black, but I'd say it's probably the least prevalent color in style, here right now.

Jeans are worn at clubs?.?. I've been turned away from clubs here (Canada) because I was wearing jeans (nice ones too - painted jet black, another time in mildly distressed regular black ones), while others wearing cheesy khakis were not. Needless to say I hate clubs with harsh dress codes.

Jeans or grey trousers, brown shoes. Peace, JG

A full wingtip brogue with all the trimmings is not intended to be a sleek and elegant shoe. Originally the hole were cut it ease drainage after your shoes got filled with water while wading through country ditches. It's come a long way from being a shoe for country walks; but as the classic shoe with the most decorative features, is still the least formal design.
I intend to wear the brogues "casually", e.g. with light cotton pants, moleskin pants, etc. and a sweater or perhaps a sports jacket/blazer over a dress shirt. Not that it matters much - I will buy the shoes because I like them - but I understand that brougues in the U.S. are (quite surprisingly) considered to be a business shoe and would therefore not be appropriate for non-business use. Would this be the case also elsewhere in the world? Marcus

Jeans are definatly worn at clubs in NYC and Italy. I don't know what's up with Canada though. In NYC it's getting to the point where jeans are acceptable attire almost anywhere; except for top-tier restaurants that carry dress codes. In Italy, the clubs really don't have a dress code; most people dress appropriatly and stylishly, so I guess it's not really needed. However, in the restaurants here one rarely sees jeans. For instance one night, I wore jeans, sportcoat, button down (tucked in), and chelsea boots to a fairly nice restaurant, and felt utterly underdressed. Suits are the norm for this occasion. Gezz, this thread has deviated; sorry to be so offtopic, I guess?
