"Packing List" Clothing Tip by jetgirl

Clothing, Mexico City: 25 reviews and 19 photos

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In general, everything imported (made outside of Mexico) is very expensive here. More expensive than if purchased back home. Things that are made in Mexico can be good deals here, but don't come here looking for bargains in clothing. Clothes here are either cheap and crappy or nice and very expensive. Same goes for shoes, though you can find some ok shoes that are made in Mexico for a good price. Also, save your shorts for the beach. No one really wears them on the streets here. Bring some nice clothes if you are going to nice restaurants as most men will wear a jacket for dinner.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
