Appropriate Clothing - for a male!

Hello all,

I've searched the first few pages of this forum and don't want to look through 10800 odd posts but I'm looking on information of what a male should wear in Marrakech as it doesn't seem to be covered as much as womens clothing.

I will be there in August and I plan to obviously see sights so I know I will need trousers of some sort, ideally if anyone knows where I can get almost harem trousers or something that light it would be very helpful!

Thanks in advance

You can pretty much wear what you want! August will be very hot so shorts are the norm for tourists

Only if you go to a religious site do you need to dress more conservatively - although in Marrakech you cant go in any mosque anyway, only in Casablanca

You can find light, thin trousers in the souk

You will find the baggy crotch, tight ankle trousers all over the place. If you want to buy good quality to wear after your holiday (?) you could check out Chez Bel Haj on Rue Dar el Bacha (ignore the most recent review, obviously written by a competitor, they are expensive but you pay for quality like you would anywhere).

Otherwise as nibrika says you can wear what you like as lots of young Moroccan guys wear shorts and vest tops in the heat. Don't go around with no top on though, that's for the beach, not the city no matter how hot it gets!
