First time at a club

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
This is my first year in college and some girls (only one of which is hot) are gona me to a club. But, having dumped most of my ill fitting high school wardrobe, my current arsenal is pretty small. In terms of pants i have some pdcs, a pair of diesels, and some grey levis cords. I have two jackets, a black track jacket, and this: http://neighborhoodies.com/catalog/p...roducts_id=135  in black with no text. Only a few dress shirts in blue, grey, and white. its hard for me to find them in a good fit let alone cool patterns. And i still have some of my various fitted Ts, baseball shirts, ringers etc. I have no "shoes," only some black vans slip ons that i live in. Im pretty close to an off fifth and a nostrums rack. It would be great if i could buy from them. thanks guys.

(the Force is strong in this one...) why don't you let the girls take you shopping? not that you'll get any great style advice from them, but it would be pretty fun, and you may make some progress with the hot one. damn, you're halfway there already, having convinced these girls to take you out. such an accomplishment for one so young. just be their 'project' for a shopping trip and you're in like flynn. /andrew - does not condone the wanton manipulation of fellow humans...much

do you know what kind of club it is? you might be fine in your hoodie, jeans, and vans. ask the girls if there's a dress code. btw, be friendly to all the girls, not just the hot one.

ah .. that feeling of going to club for the 1st time .. so exciting... Ok, like someone mentioned here your job is to find out if there is dress code. However, dress code or not, dress sexy. I cannot tell you too much. I do not know your skin complection, body type, height, weight etc. If you are going shopping, I would not take girls, unless the girl really know your styling (not fashion.). But here what NOT to wear to club. 1. No white socks 2. No coord nor khackis. 3. No shirts with checker pattern. 4. No runners PS: with girls, do not be pu$$y by buying drinks for them. Tell them to buy u drinks. Be the one who will show good times to everyone around you. That's all you need to do

I'd also avoid the chunky Kenneth Cole shoes, striped button-down, dark jeans look, as it is kinda a dime a dozen. Some cool looks i've seen lately: Blazer (leather, suede, or a dark, slim-fitting sportcoat) French Blue or Electric blue spread collar dress shirt Black or dark charcoal slacks Black Chelsea/Chukka boots

If the club has a dress code, don't go. Wear whatever you wnat to a club, don't be a try-hard and get "dressed up." You'll end up looking lame. Have fun, and good luck with the ladies.

I would not wear the hoodie to the club. Clubs are very hot, and you don't want to be sweltering in the hoodie all night. I'd wear the PDCs, dress shirt (untucked if the tails aren't too long), track jacket, t-shirt underneath (as long as it is fitted, and either solid in color, or simple logo/pattern),and Vans - if you want to go without spending any more money. This outfit allows you to easily remove the track jacket and/or dress shirt if you get too warm. If you are willing to drop some more money, I'd keep the PDCs and Track Jacket in the ensamble, but I'd pick up a pair of slimmer Pumas (speed cat) instead of the Vans, or perhaps a pair of slip-on dress shoes (harder to find the quality for a decent price though, even at the outlets you mentioned). Perhaps get a patterned shirt that is well-fitting, or a solid color fitted T if you don't already have one.

Personally I prefer more upscale clubs with dress codes. At least here in Cali, its a bit annoying beacuse most people are dressed down.

Word. Sorry, drizzt3117, but the only clubs with dress codes worth going to in SoCal are the salsa/meringue clubs (I did reviews of clubs during my time there, so I'm not totally talking out my a$$ as usual.) Some hip hop clubs have some sort of rudimentary dress code to deter gangbangers - that I understand (usually there is a no jerseys and no sneakers rule, but they'll relax the latter if you don't look like the type to be packing heat/causing trouble.) But otherwise, a dress code is a red light for me that says one of three things: 1) Beware of yuppies 2) Jailbait, jailbait. Abort. Abort, or merely 3) This club is really lame.

I do not think dressing up is lame. If a person is comfortable with a style that he is in, I think its all good. To me trying too hard is those guys who puts gears out of places or wearing odd looking suits in classic sartorial manner. Hence, one should seek social environment where he and his style is well accepted .. At least for me that is.

Personally, I think clubs (let's just say in Vegas) like Light, Tabu, etc... that are more upscale are more interesting to me, same with ones in London, etc... I think some "upscale" LA clubs are interesting, but then again, some other clubs w/o code are cool too.

Here in Cali, 99% are filled with lamers, and the 1% that aren't... well... 1% is a pretty small portion.

1) Beware of yuppies
Even worse are those aspiring to be yuppies. Young guns dressed up in expensive (yet still ugly and unpersonalized) style, utter tools to women, and throw a tantrum if they can't get a good seat (inside, yet near the window, but not too bright) in that restaurant with a $50 hamburger.

The point is that if there is a dress CODE, don't go, because it's probably as plastic as the buttons on a 7 Diamonds shirt. I see nothing wrong with dressing up in itself (I think few do), it's just the fact that there is some idea that by having your clubbers wear nicer clothes, the people will somehow be cooler, and the club will make them feel exclusive. There's nothing worse than trying to feel exclusive.
