I added a {{stub}} marker--did I understand the idea correctly that much more content (and regional specifics?) will be added later? What is a vision for the future of this page? --DenisYurkin 17:19, 31 July 2007 (EDT)

Yes, more info will be added. The idea is to describe what could be expected of a traveller and clothing in different situations, such as visits to churches of various kinds, restaurants, etc. In Paris, it's quite common to see foreign tourists entering (for example) a church in hawaii shorts and sandals... not good, since they often get thrown out.

I see. BTW, right now it looks more like general rules of conduct--not only dress-code rules. --DenisYurkin 04:25, 3 October 2007 (EDT)

I don't think this article is necessary. Dress code rules vary from country to country, which is why it should be and is covered under Respect, and "advice" like "common sense should be used" is useless. Jpatokal 06:02, 3 October 2007 (EDT)

I agree. It only takes a quick mental comparison of dress codes in Japan, Brazil, and say Saudi Arabia, to see that very few generalizations can be made. These generalizations like "photography may or may not be prohibited" are not helpful at all. Texugo 06:53, 3 October 2007 (EDT)


This article actually contains no advice at all on a dress code. I'd like to pull the little useful information that isn't hopelessly generalised into Respect, and redirect his article there. Any counter views? --inas 21:04, 28 July 2009 (EDT)

Agreed. General info (the useful bits, anyway) can be merged to Respect; country-specific dress code info belongs in country/region articles. --Peter Talk 21:52, 28 July 2009 (EDT)
