Beware of "trying to hard" ... you'll end up looking silly being the 2012 version of the American tourist to Bavaria trying to pull off lederhosen.
Dress like an American, but ... the way Americans ought to dress, if that makes sense. So skip the short pants, ball caps, anything with sports-related logos, ... or really any logos at all. No running shoes unless you are actually exercising, and god forbid, no Crocs.
IF you wear a smile, and top it off with a decent helping of "excuse me", "please" and "thank you" ... you will fit in much more than what wearing the "right" pair of jeans can do for you.
Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
I've got a cat named Beefeater and a dog named Beefeater, and two goldfish called Beefeater and Beefeater. There's Beefeater my hamster and Beefeater my horse, and my piglet, known as Beefeater of course.
