    Yeah, as the title says, I'm going clubbing for the first time in a few weeks and I was just wondering what is acceptable/isn't acceptable.

    I'm not into this whole cardigan/jumper phase everyone is going through atm because I'm usually just a t-shirt+hoody guy but hoodies are frowned upon in clubs and gets too hot anyway. Is it alright for me just to wear a nice t-shirt, jeans with some trainers? Are trainers ok because after watching that Inbetweeners episode where he isn't allowed in cos of his trainers I'm screwed because I'm not into the whole smart shoes thing. Are plimsolls ok?

    Thanks for the help

    Don't wear trainers. Plimsolls should be okay providing they're relatively nice.

    Erm, they are the bog standard Primark ones :eek3:

    This smart business doesn't really appeal to me so I don't buy shirts, cardigans and jumpers :eek3:

    Depends on what the club is like; generally jeans, t-shirt would be pretty standard - if it's a scummy to average club nice-ish trainers (i.e. Nike Airmax's) would be fine but maybe wear loafers or nice plimsolls to avoid any problems. If the club is a bit posher then jeans and a shirt and if it's really posh crack out the suit.

    I live in Cambridge but I think we'll be going here - http://www.revolution-bars.co.uk/

    Haven't got a clue whether it's average or not

    Depends on the club. Normally I go in jeans/t shirt. But some clubs are more strict with their dress code (I have had friends turned away by the shoe nazis wearing plimsols)

    Trainers are not a good idea anywhere though tbh

    Not really. Plimsols are fine most places. It is only the more upmarket clubs that have shoe nazis on the door (I was not amused, even though I would have been fine)

    So do you know whether the club is upmarket or not?

    I've never had problems with trainers in clubs, this is in London. I'm sure some places have a dress code, but it's unlikely if its a more studenty place.

    You could always phone them and ask if a dress code if you are worried/ask someone who has been

    Not fancy dress! :zomg:

    Fancy dress in clubs is hilarious (and entire dancefloor filled with people dressed as bananas is hilarious)

    But their you go OP your answer

    You may as well get some nice shoes because you will undoubtedly need a pair at some point and on more than one occasion and not just only at this club.

    what's this thing about trainers? I wear trainers every time I go into a club. They're good looking trainers. I've never had a problem.

    What the **** are you all on about?!!

    Who honestly gives a toss about what you wear, it comes down to the matter of if you're gonna stick your p in a v at the end of the night.

    Hahaha nowhere in Cambridge is going to turn you away based on your dress code! You REALLY have nothing to worry about.

    For reference I went there dressed as a superhero last week..
