    Thanks for all the helpful hints here. I had 4 pairs of dress pants packed for my husband for dinner...but it seems as if we will be safe with just khaki shorts...we do have reservations at Passions (but since it's on the beach I'm guessing shorts will fly)..the only other places we have reservations are Texas de Brazil & Madame J's....from what I have seen it seems like shorts are OK for him there as well. If anyone knows differently please let me know. We leave on Sunday YAYYY!!

    Hello, my name is Andy and I am an overdresser.

    When my wife and I go to a nice restaurant, I prefer slacks. Nothing fancy, tropical weight casual slacks. I usually wear a Hawaiian type shirt with them or sometimes a polo shirt. I don't feel comfortable in shorts at a place like Chalet Suisse, Pago Pago, etc. type restaurants in shorts.

    Looking around, I realize I'm in the minority but I do what feels right for me. I don't feel out of place because there are always other that dress as I do. I don't do it because it's required or more appropriate, just because I feel better.

    Our past trip, imo, people were dressed very sloppily. On men cargo pants and t-shirts, some including baseball caps as well as women wearing the same type of shorts and shirt I would wear to the food store.

    Your choices are dress down and go with the flow and blend in or be your own person and dress how you feel is appropriate.

    I've noticed this same things. I am bothered by it as you are. I will continue to wear the clothing that makes me comfortable in my surroundings.

    I am confused a bit here, I have been reading that many restaurants, especially those in the AIs require slacks for men. We are going to the Occidental and this is what I have been reading, is it not true?
