Mens dresscode

Hello lovely people :)

What is the correct dresscode for men in Iran?

I have read a lot of different things. Some say that tourists can wear shorts and t-shirt. Some say its not allowed. Can you give me an answer?

Also, what should i buy in the bazaar to wear?, i mean, what is the name of thin pants for men in farsi? My jeans will probably be way to hot in september!

Greetings,

Frederik

Hello Fredrik

You can wear whatever you wear in your own country, there is no special dress code for men, just do not wear very short shorts. On the first day you will realize how to dress in Iran, T-shirts is absolutely fine. There is a lot of men's clothing shops all around, it is easy to buy different pare of pants.

If you would like to buy a pair of jeans just say jeans or Sharver.

Hey

I was there last year and you need to wear long pants in Iran.

I'm sure if you wear shorts it won't be an issue but why draw attention to yourself, much more enjoyable to do as locals do.

I just bought some light long pants, hiking pants with zip offs are good so in transit or in desert you can zip off the bottom half of legs.

The heat is naturally dry so even in 40+ heat you won't feel any hotter in long pants.

I'm not sure why people are specifically saying "small shorts", to be clear, you will not see a single male in Iran wearing shorts, unless you're at the beach. Don't wear shorts.

Any long pants at all are fine, Iranian men wear the same style of pants/jeans/tracksuits/etc as every other country.

Hi

You are not allowed to wear shorts in public places. You can wear any long pants. You can wear the loose ones since it is hot.

Hi,

In Iran men, as well as women, are not usually expected to wear sleeveless shirts or a very short pair of trousers or jeans in public places. However, this is not legally prohibited.
