    My hubby wears long (light weight, usually white) pants to some restaurants in Aruba depending on the place. He figures that if I dress up and the restaurant is upscale, then he should dress appropriately as well (his decision, not mine.) But that's just us - we enjoy a dinner out as "an event" and dressing up is part of the event.

    We do miss the "old days" (mid to late 90's) in Aruba when people used to dress up more. I remember when Mike used to always pack a tie - he did wear a tie on NYE in Aruba about a year ago - everyone was dressed up that night for dinner and the NYE party following it. Had a great time!

    We've stayed at a couple of all-inclusives in MX (including a Riu) over the years and all have required men to wear long pants in the nicer, ala carte restaurants.

    But...different strokes for different folks. As long as we all look nice.

    I brought 1 pair of long pants (khaki's) when I stayed at RIU. Wore them only to dinner at the al a carte restaurants (about 3 hours total long pant wearing time) and immediately went back to room and changed back into shorts. The ala carte restauraunts were very good, and much as i don't like long pants , it was nice to "dress up" and go to dinner.
