Heading to Europe & Not Sure What to Pack? Here are a few things that my fellow US travelers may want to avoid packing if they are traveling to Europe.
1. Baseball Caps: Europeans in general do not wear baseball caps, especially backwards. You would be better served to wear a more traditional hat. You will see an occasional NY Yankee hat, but why not buy the fancy hat you always wanted instead?
2. Athletic Wear: Europeans tend to wear athletic wear to do sports, not to wear around town. There is a trend of more athleisurewear in Europe, but it is not to the extent that there is in US.
3. Khakis: the omnipresent US male pant choice is not something you will see too often in Europe. Go for colored pants or jeans. If you want khaki like pants wear Chinos instead of Dockers. The pants you will see are a thinner cut or “skinnier” fit than in the US.
4. Oversized US University Sweatshirts.
5. Sport Shoes or High Heals: US sport shoes and white socks are not quite as popular in Europe as they are in the US. You may be better off with Urban Street shoes like Vans instead. Also, women should be careful with high heels as with all the cobblestone it is easy to hurt your ankles.

  1. Please Note: This Video is for 35+ year old US travelers heading to Europe. Young Europeans do wear most of these styles and trends, but the 35+ European crowd do not wear them to the same extent. And the locals won't care what you wear, so this is more to help you blend in a bit better. Great travels to you all & Thank you for all the comments & subscriptions.

    But Khakes are all I have 🙁

  3. James Ziemba says:

    Flip flops, ponchos, and propeller beanies are out especially when worn together.

    I've never heard so much bollox, I've watched Tons if your videos today, and I'm constantly surprised about how much shit you talk. You're super ignorant and just make things up….. seriously man it's baffling. I've spent my whole life hopping around Europe and almost none of what you say is true. Absolutely astonishing.

    no offense to this dude but in general it seems more like your mannerisms and weight determine whether you look like a tourist over the clothing you wear. i’m traveling to a few european countries this summer and i hope i don’t stick out as a tourist but my italian language teacher who was raised in italy said the italians love american tourists so idk if that applies to every country but i hope the natives are nice people where i’m going 🙂

  6. You look like a tourist

    I don't give a s*** I'm wearing my cowboy hat I don't go anywhere without my Stetson

  8. Audrey P. says:

    I have never had a problem with the way I dress over in Europe . Just dress how you would in America and be confident!!

  9. Strange Jay says:

    Im going to do the opposite of what he said

  10. I don't understand this whole thing of what you should wear and shouldnt wear in Europe. It's weird because for example if I went to France and wore what i want…Why am I classed as weird or "low class" like I'm not FRENCH.

  11. Heyy!?? You! Know lot about countries fatboy

  12. Juanjo says:

    Hi, I'm spanish and I want to tell you that is not a problem if you wear baseball's caps or US University Sweatshirt. A lot of european people love that kind of clothes, so you don't have to look like a tourist.

  13. I use caps to block out glare. Baseball caps are ok.

  14. HavocKing117 says:

    Glad he didn't mention my American flag shorts.

  15. lucas g says:

    But ots okay to wear a hijab

  16. mike flynn says:

    There a lot of Europeans who would be just fine if you didn’t visit, stay home and support Trump… you’re welcome

  17. von Hessen says:

    Well shit…there goes my whole wardrobe

  18. VeniVidiAjax says:

    Love the automated translated dutch title

  19. toemblem says:

    Also, wearing your cowboy hat, boots and spurs is probably not the norm in some European metropolises.
