    What is "resort wear"?

    The GF and I are planning on going a vacation to an all inclusive resort (not exclusive enough to exclude us though) that has restaurants that mention a dress code of "resort wear"? I'm sure there not going to throw us out for a fashion faux pau, but what in the heck are they referring too? Google isn't much help, it looks like a golf shirt and nicer shorts would qualify unless a sport coat would be needed.

    Would it be too obvious to just call the restaurant / resort in question? Just a thought....

    Prolly means t-shorts and shorts - but i'd call for clarification. Just tell them that you are used to Bahama's Resort Wear which is t-shorts and shorts and you want to make sure that their definition of "resort wear" is the same to prevent any international confusion.
    Yeah, that's right International Confusion. Even it's in the US just run with it!

    Resort Wear is what a gringo (no offense) uses to visit my island.

    Pants - Short Bermuda type
    Shirt - Buttons, short sleeve, colorful theme
    Foot Wear - Sandals

    A hat is not required but is also highly recommended, specially for up-north gringos not used to tropical sunlight.

    This guy here is a good example.

    An essential accessory to resort wear is large, firm, suntanned breasts.

    That would be 42 Regular, if I went to resorts. I try to avoid them since I am very fair-skinned and cook like a pork chop in the sun.

    According to my mom, terrycloth is THE ultimate in finer resort wear. Yup, you should wear that powder blue terrycloth overall shorts set with pride.

    Fortunately, my GF doesn't find that appealing in a guy.

    Cool, I've got a whole closet full of those that I wear to work everyday. Wait, that didn't come out right.

    I can handle that. They really stressed wearing a hat when I went to Jamaica, even for people that lived down South.
