What is the typical dress code at work and in public places? Is formal dress ever required?

Take formal dress for the Marine Ball, otherwise you will have to use local fabric to have one custom made. At work is business casual and public places people were very laid back (the expats). Locals are more concerned about dressing nice (their local fabric and materials). - Sep 27, 2017
Less formal than in DC. Local fabrics are fun to wear, with great local tailors available. - Aug 13, 2015
