    Plunking down a hundred or more for a "Night at the Roxbury" experience. Horrible "oosh oosh oosh" music that prevents anyone from having a conversation, ridiculous $18 drinks, douchebags, and black eyeshadow herp girls. People peppering their sentences with "epic" and "sick". The look of ecstasy on pleb faces when Lady Gaga comes on. There's nothing fun about it. Ever walk by some guy in his car cranking out the "oosh oosh oosh" music from his car? Heh.

    This. Also, in any place like a bar or club, remember that the lighting sucks, and really, only the silhouette can be seen. I wear what I typically wear anyway - a slim, midnight, black, or charcoal pullover, a pair of jeans, and minimalist sneakers. If it's a colder evening, but not cold enough that I need to coat check, I'll wear a dark, slim twill jacket or a boiled wool one (mine is KVA, but lots of brands make them.) It's either that, or you can go balls out rock star. Of course, if you go from minimalist and simple to rockstar, odds are that you'll get halted at "huge douchebag."

    Im 27, went out last weekend with a buddy to some places....i felt so out of place it was uncomfortable. i dont know how youd have the stones to allow yourself to be ridiculed like you will be. Unless you own the club, stay out if your "over 45" Isnt there an AARP meeting you can find?

    Clubbing at 45 is weird, clubbing over 28 is weird for the matter. I'm not sure what kind of clubs you people are going to that are suggesting to wear designer suits and shoes. If where talking about a true club and not some lounge, it will be packed to shit with sweaty people on drugs, probably the worst environment to break out a suit, trust me it will be way to hot anyway. I went to Guvernment in toronto and wore some shitty black dress shoes and they came out a mess.

    My advice don't even go, just rave out at home or something...

    a well tailored suit is the best idea

    so then you can be the 45 year old guy who is sweating profusely. That's much less creepy.

    So you want him to wear a $3000 suit to a fucking night club, so people can spill drinks and possibly vomit on it? Not to mention the skanks with daddy issues who'll be clawing at it. Awesome advice.
