    Another question.. feel like a completle nightlife newb here.

    i know that generally you got to be fairly smart at clubs.. like no trackies and stuff. Im guessing your not allowed to wear trainers? Like my Adidas Nizza Los or Nike 6.0s.. What is the acceptable footwear? I got a pair of bog standard slip on shoes.. and thats it. Would the shoes do? Or would I look like I was in the wrong place?

    Oh and what sort of clothing is acceptable. Guess jeans/chinos and polo/casual shirt would be the norm?

    Thanks!

    Any plain dark shoes should do. Black leather shoes, black/grey pumps etc.

    I wear black plimsolls or black vans, i think generally if you wear bright shoes it's riskier (from a guys perspective).

    Boat shoes lol or black vans. Then wear jeans or chinos. And wear a Oxford shirt/ chequered shirt/polo/ tight t and you will look like a don. Follow up with a pull and a couple numbers and that's that.

    don't worry about the dress code so much, especially when we're talking about these student nights for freshers, there'll be plenty of people wearing all sorts of crazy stuff. Basically you need to look good, you can go ahead and buy yourself a new wardrobe of clubbing clothes which will get you in the club but really u just need clothes that suit you and leave you feeling comfortable. It's so easy to dress to impress these days since half the people are wearing the same clothing which is fine if you want to stay off the radar.

    You've already got the idea, don't walk in with a full set of tracksuits looking like a complete chav, but I'm guessing you don't dress like that wherever you go anyway.

    I go all out man!

    I go for big cowboy boots, white jeans, some sort of t shirt, braces and shades. But that's just me, no point in being generic and trying to fit in with the crowd.

    Depends what kind of club you're going to, and on what night it is. Sometimes you're fine wearing anything so long as they're not sandals - other times you need to be wearing shoes/not trainers or you won't get in.

    Are you retarded or something? You're not going to the ****ing ice rink, there isn't any footwear you 'need' to have unless you don't own any shoes to begin with.

    From the description:

    'Expect a night of good music, stupidly cheap drink deals as well as the perfect chance to meet/catch up with your housemates as we look forward to the 2011-12 academic year and all the many parties, promiscuous behaviour and moments of fame and shame that come with it '

    Do you really think this place could give two ****s about the shoes you're wearing? You could wear the black shoes u have, but they'd probably get wrecked.

    Wear vans, chinos and a polo with an emblem of a man playing horse croquet and you're ready to join the herd.

    Seriously though, what happened to individuality?
