Dress code- I have searched!! Promise!

Hi

Going to Dubai in precisely 6 weeks for the start of our honeymoon and I can't wait! I check this forum daily for the regular updates and it is really useful and I have found answers to most of the questions that I had. However, one thing I can't seen to find is the answer to whether men are ok to wear open toe sandals to restaurants. We are staying at the Oasis Beach Hotel. Just need to know if we need to do anymore shopping (any excuse!). Are linen trousers smart enough for men in the evenings?? Thanks!

My other half wore a lot of linen trousers (not all at once I might add) and they were fine. Also a lot of the restaurants do say no to open toe sandals for men, okay for women but not men,but I did see a lot of men wearing them. David wore boat type shoes if you know what I mean, never trainers and we had no problems anywhere.

There was a lot better choice of linen trousers for men in Dubai than there was in Manchester so David bought a couple of pairs there too.
