Appropriate clothing for tourists in Almaty

We have an upcoming trip planned with Road Scholar to the five 'Stans. We first land in Almaty and have wondered what the cultural norms are for tourist's clothing. It should still be warm in many parts of the five 'Stans, but we assume shorts and sleeveless shirts are not appropriate. Any other restrictions? Short sleeve shirts for men? Women? No open-toed shoes, etc.?

You're probably correct in saying shorts and sleeveless shirts are not appropriate. I don't recall seeing any adults wearing shorts but short sleeved shirts and open toed shoes for men and women are commonly worn throughout the 5 "stans"

You can wear any clothes except swimwear. You didn't see any adults wearing shorts because was work time and they had more official clothes.

T-shirt and shorts - is normal in summer.
