Jeans okay?

The last time I was in Europe, not many Europeans wore jeans. Are they appropriate attire for touring the gardens, Floriade and Keukenhof?

I think it's the most worn type of clothing in the Netherlands!

I suggest two pairs. One you keep clean and pressed in your bag.

Never know when you might run into a formal occasion and want to dress up.

Actually this is real advice and not tongue in cheek advice.

Yes, jeans and VERY comfortable rubber-bottom-soled shoes. Take a pass on those wooden shoes "suggested" by Ger-Holland. Lots of walking on surfaces that are rarely even and smooth. 2 pair of jeans would be great. A dark pair would easily work at night. And if you land on your bum trying to dodge a determined bicyclist, the street dirt will show less.

Jeans can take you anywhere I've seen other than maybe a chic Michelin *** restaurant. Or the casino. And even then, bring $$$ and I think you can get in anywhere here in jeans and a jacket.

Better yet, buy a pair of Dutch jeans at G-Star PC Hooftstraat.
