    Hi guys I am going to Europe (Prague, Budapest, and Vienna) this month for ten days. This is my first time to Europe so I don't quite know how to dress appropriately as a tourist. I am still at school so most of the time I wear shorts all day long.

    I suppose I can wear jeans when I tour around but since I am going to walk a lot for sightseeing I am afraid I am going to get all sweaty.

    Is there any alternatives to jeans/shorts for me to wear to walk around comfortably in european cities not looking like a tourist.

    Thanks

    jeans and trim cut cargo pants. But if you must wear shorts find trim ones.

    First time to hear about this brand but it does look good and serve my purpose.
    however, $200 for the least expensive ones .....[​IMG] does SF have this pants in BS section ?

    The pants are made for cycling, but they look good and withstand sweat, rain, etc so they'd be ideal for walking as well. As for the price, yeah they're expensive. Partly due to the fact that they use domestic production and are a relatively small operation. I'll search for some more affordable alternatives though.

    I would just wear shorts as much as you can, maybe pick up a pair of light weight chinos for pants if you need them. Make sure you have comfortable shoes for walking around all day.

    Obviously you'll need lederhosen for Vienna.

    Seriously - you're over thinking this. What would you wear wandering around a city at home?

    Pick up some man capris when you arrive....I hear they breathe well and you'll blend in with the locals.

    It's not likely you will be too warm in Prague, Budapest, and Vienna in May.
    Jeans are fine. Shorts are seldom worn by locals (men) on the street in Europe
    unless it's a seaside resort town.

    I would appreciate if you can give some alternatives to this brand. I really like it.

    Why on earth would you have to dress differently when visiting another country?

    It's not needed. I've been there in the summer, jeans all the time.
