    wear a Dale Ernhart t shirt denim shorts and some wal-mart sandals.

    but if your going out at night don't forget you clear mirrored sun glasses.

    and really don't wear a tie and they might not let you in some places with sneakers even if your wearing an Armani suit and tie.

    In matters of sin, a tie adds +5 to Dexterity and Charisma.

    Is there any other option?



    Only in LA may you legally wear a suit and sneakers.

    as far as the sneaker thing goes if you are planning and going to clubs and or super lounges they might not let you in if you are wearing any kinda sneaker.

    I was with a friend who was wearing a Armani suit and Chuck tayors and they would not let him in to a club AT ALL. stupid I know, but something to think about.

    The real question is... What time of the year is it?
    If it is the summer you will not want to wear a tie. In fact, you won't want to wear a suit. But hey what do I know? I lived there for a few years. It gets hot there in the summer. 105-115F

    I believe the proper attire for Vegas is a fat wad of cash.

    If the suit cost over a grand, you can get away with no tie. If its a cheap suit, you gotta wear a tie and nice shoes.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    I stood in line next to Roman Coppola once and he was wearing a tux and chucks. You too, can pull it off if your last name is Coppola.

    Just so everyone knows... Prostitution is illegal in Las Vegas. So don't go there and pick one up thinking it is legal.
