Colombia

I’m going to Bogota at the end of September. I’ve seen several people claim that people expect you to dress nicely there, and that shorts will get you pegged as a tourist and easy mark for whores, robbers, grifters, etc.

I was going to buy a few pairs of slacks and a dress shirt, but I was watching some walkthroughs of the city on Youtube and it doesn’t seem like anyone dresses like that.

If I dress in slacks, a collared shirt, and some brown dress shoes will I blend in? If not, will the proportion and intensity of Colombianas after my gringo dick be worth the tradeoff of potentially getting stabbed to death over $5 in cash?

      Just done it. I see the problem. The dude I was watching was in red light districts, the actual walk videos are all people dressed way nicer. Cheers, fellas.

    Most urban latin american men from my observation seem to wear pants or jeans, a collared shirt or polo shirt and leather shoes. You could also buy a guayabera while you're there. Bogota btw has Seattle's weather despite being in the tropics so you won't see any people in shorts but you might see that in Cartagena.

      Lol nobody would wear guayabera en bogota.

      Dress in bogota as you would dress in London. Simple as that. Same shitty weather.

        >Same.shitty weather
        10-20C all year round with 50% humidity is shitty to you? Would you rather live in a humid 40C hellhole or a -30C frozen tundra?
        I swear you people get triggered at the sight of two clouds and probably melt when it's drizzling.

          I like it about 75F and sunny with about 50% humidity and occasional rain if you're asking.

          Medellin has this climate.

            Really? Then why is the high tomorrow 82? Medellin hasn’t had regular 75 degree weather for about twenty or thirty years now.

              Yeah I just looked, 28 degrees give or take a degree basically all year round.

              82 is still fine. I don't really get uncomfortable until it gets into the 90s. Medillin still gets cool at night.

      That was what I saw. Most of them honestly looked poorly dressed, which surprised me because lots of people have told me about how important wearing pants was.

      Yeah I’ve heard. I’m from Vancouver though so it can’t get much worse.

        Bogotano here, it's not so much about the quality of the clothes, it's about how much you show. A t-shirt, a pair of jeans and a light jacket for when it rains or gets windy is what I'd wear every day.
        But yeah man you wear shorts here and you are immediately outed as the retard, don't ever do that.

      I just don’t want them to know I’m a gringo so I can avoid getting mugged or propositioned. The city walk video I watched had a half-dozen or so instances of whores just approaching over-the-hill boomers and while I like to think I’m smarter than the average bear my dick is not and I would probably get my wallet nicked.

        If you are in those areas you are never going to look like a local. No matter how you dress they will spot you from a mile away. If that’s what you’re afraid of stay away from those areas or learn to deal with it. Why would you be hanging around there at night anyway? Everything you want to do around there is daylight kind of stuff. In the evening you shouldn’t really go below chapinero if you’re the type to worry.

      I've worn shorts in London on nicer days because the British don't talk to you and I don't care what they think anyway, but in latam I try to blend in.

        Sometimes even my gaunch if I’m in the backyard, but only outside, it’s weird. My parents put A/C in this summer and I’ve been in my winter clothes since June.

      This is the truth. In their winter it was cold enough I was comfy in ned under giant comforter in hostel. Medellin is also good weather for pants. If you visit the coast then its weather for shorts

    medellin doesnt feel 82 because it rains a lot. its not humid at all. thats why its considered spring weather year round. you still need ac inside because it gets stiffy

      It’s called that because they gave it the nickname more than a hundred years ago when the weather actually was always springlike because hardly anybody lived there. But it passed that point long ago. It’s called the urban heat island effect. And every year it gets worse especially since they don’t do a damn about all those diesel buses and millions of taxis.

      Thy could easily mandate all public transport including taxis be electric and solve half the problem right there at least for air pollution. All the new construction and population growth still means it’ll get hotter and hotter.

        I really doubt they have the infrastructure for that, much less the money to replace the fleet in a timely manner.

    You're going to look like a retard and an awkward jerky idiot either way. Me and my rateros will spot you a block away. You better be watching you six, essay. One false move or show of fear and we move in. Don't even think of coming down to Sante Fe or staying in the Sante Fe Motel with my venezuelan drug dealers and brothels outside. I got so many putas it would make your head spin.

        It's a language exchange night where university aged local chicas attempt to practice speaking English with native speakers. I met some real cuties that way. It's in Bogotá and I think Medellin as well

          Neat. I'm thinking of going (have to go SOMEWHERE in LatAm to do medical stuff this winter), this definitely ups my interest in Colombia.

          If you know Barfcom, there was a great thread on there (that the mods deleted) by some guy who regularly went to Colombia to get laid. He was 50-ish and roughly spherical or at least ovoid. He had no problem picking up hot 20-ish chicas.

                What the fuck is the point when you are in fucking Venezuela? A bunch of ugly troll faced South American monkeys with baboon asses, high crime levels, shit ass food and 7 hours in a car to get literally anywhere in the country? Muh epic cocainerino? I don't understand you people, if you want debauchery go to fucking Thailand or something.
