Traveling to Sitges - what to pack?

I don't want to be the ugly or obvious male tourist - what should I pack? Are shorts, tee shirts, flip flops, and beach apparel acceptable in town, or should it be collared shirt and slacks or pressed shorts? Do many restaurants/bars require a jacket in the evening?

Thanks in advance for your help.

There are very stylish mens boutiques in Sitges, so you could always clothes shop if you feel you need to.

For every person you see dressing up there is one dressing down.

Sitges - like most of Spain - is very casual when it comes to dress - even in the smartest of restaurants: and there are plenty of those in Sitges! 'Smart casual' is acceptable in all places, and I don't know anywhere in Sitges which would expect a jacket. It's not uncommon to see (eg) even in the smartest restaurants the women dressed to the nines while the guys are in jeans and open-knecked shirts. As far as in town is concerned: shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops are perfectly acceptable, but there was a poster campaign a few years ago who's basic 'strap line' was 'Not in Sitges'. This included (amongst other scenarios) pictures of guys parading through town without shirts on. Sitges likes to think it is above that sort of thing! (and quite right too: Sitges is NOT Magaluf!). Relax and enjoy Sitges!
