Before answering this question, I traveled a bit through the net and wanted to see what other DJs do and if they agree with me.
Yes, they do. The most common way of clothing for a DJ is shirts, jeans and sneakers.
Of course, I’m not writing this post only to tell you this. Let’s expand the topic and talk about what and how a DJ should choose to wear.
First things first ! You need to have your own unique style and stand out in a crowd since appearance plays quite a role on a DJ’s reputation as well as the quality of his music.
A typical DJ stands on foot 5 to 6 hours for a regular gig, therefore he needs to be in a comfortable setting. Clothing is a part of it. Try to wear orthopedic shoes that will not give you pain.
Some of you may prefer collared shirts. Not recommended ! Keep in mind, your headphones will be hanging over your neck all the time and it’ll ruin the collar. Best is a simple t-shirt or a nice sweatshirt if cold.
Speaking of cold weather, no matter what the temperature is outside, it’s always warm in a club or bar, especially in a room packed with people.
Don’t try to bundle up. Later in the night, you may feel like getting naked 🙂
At Hot DJ Gear, you can choose from a wide selection as well as creating your own shirt design.
For private parties or weddings, it’s a whole different ball game. You need to put your style away.
Definitely talk to the person in charge of organizing the event. You don’t wanna end up wearing a shirt and jeans where everybody else is in suits or tuxedos.
I guess you got the idea. Be casual, but stylish and comfortable. Else is all up to you.
