What are your thoughts?


An electronic spiral in neon pink over a black t-shirt. You'll be flyin' after you pop yer x's......

This forum is about classical men's clothing, and a suit or sportcoat is not really what you want to be wearing to a rave, but just in-case this isn't actually a troll: This really depends on what rave, what type of music, and what country. For example at a hard house rave you will find lots of wildly dressed 'cyber-ravers', at a hardcore rave will be lots of neon and glowsticks, whereas at a DnB rave you would be hard pressed to find anyone who wasn't wearing just jeans and a t-shirt. If you've never been to a rave before then cargo pants or jeans plus a t-shirt would be the obvious choice, with whatever shoes you comfortable being on your feet all night in, which will probably mean trainers of some sort. You can wear other stuff once you get a feel for how everyone else dresses at the particular venue. Those electronic t-shirts are a bad idea, you think they're cool until you realise three people at the rave are wearing the same one as you...

sorry, i didn't realize this was for only a certain type of clothing. I thought it was a general forum to discuss clothing and thought I would get people's opinions.
Still don't understand the troll reference.

Forget fashionable clothing, wear something smooth with a unique, soft touch to it.

Trust me on this one.

when you say rave, what kind of music will be playing?

you can wear literally whatever you want, there is no dress code.

check out the brands Cassette Playa, KTZ, Bernhard Willhelm, Henrik Vibskov, and WL&T. I think that might be what you're looking for.

Typical rave wear for me would be a vintage Norman Hilton sport coat (which I shed once the X kicks in), Bill's Khakis (flat front, uncuffed), vintage Florsheim Imperial wingtips, a Brooks Brothers OCBD, and a BB #1 tie in maroon.

But I'm 51 years old and this style may not work for you younger ravers.
