What to wear: Since the climate in Egypt is continental ( dry and hot in summer time, warm and cool in winter time), it is advised to pack your light clothes the most (shirts, T-shirts and shorts), with two long sleeves pieces; and if coming to Egypt in winter time (The Beginning of December till the end of March), do not forget to pack your wind breaker as well.
You might need a sweater in the early mornings and in the late evenings of winter time as it is normally cool and even gets colder. The most visited places by tourist are sandy and desert, so leather shoes are not highly recommended during the tour. In 5* hotels and Nile Cruises you should wear trousers and shirts especially in Dinner time and no slippers.

As for men, it has nothing to do with the Egyptian culture as long as they wear at least shorts, but then they will be looking like real tourist which is O.K except for you might be attracting sellers and hasslers in the street.
