NOTE: Your footwear is also important, please look further down on this page, to see what footwear you can use at SLM Copenhagen).

What is masculine dresscode?

At the usual Friday events Friday Bar & Cruise and some other events, you will see the dresscode defined as "Masculine". This dresscode covers all masculine fetish outfit and ordinary masculine non-fetish clothings. This gives you the opportunity to visit the club in your leather, rubber, construction clothes, MC gear, sports clothes etc. and also in plain and ordinary clothes. If you visit SLM Copenhagen in plain and ordinary clothes, it needs to be neutral and respectful to all the guys that visit SLM in their fetish outfits. That means no shirts, knitwear, office shoes, fashion prints and colorful/gaudy clothes in general. If you are not sure, then take a look at the examples below. A good starting point could be a pair of worn jeans, a black t-shirt or tanktop and sneakers. Another safe option is a tanktop, training pants and sneakers.

No to: knit wear, shirts, t-shirts and polos with fashion prints.

Yes to: Solid colored t-shirts/polos, naughty prints, sport clothes and tanktops.

You are always very welcome in leather, rubber, neoprene, army, skin, MC-gear, sport, contruction and combinations of any.

Dressing rooms, cloakroom and bath in the club

There is always staffed cloakroom SLM Copenhagen so you can safely drop your coats and any bags to the member on door duty. There are also changing rooms, so you have the option to switch to your fetish clothes. There are shower facilities in SLM Copenhagen, however, please bring your own towel.

There are several other color codes, but these are the most commonly used.


Heavy black leather forms the basis of the whole leather scene. It can be motorcycle gear – which you can also get in colours other than black – different kinds of uniforms made out of leather, or a leather jacket and leather trousers. A classic is a pair of black chaps over jeans. Black boots or a harness are also traditional parts of the leather outfit.


Rubber or latex wear is produced in many designs and shapes and goes really well with “wet” activities such as golden shower. Rubber can be anything from heavy industrial protection gear to a pair of small shorts or a tight t-shirt. Lots of normal clothes can also be bought as rubber, e.g. trousers, uniform shirts, bomber jackets, chaps and wrestling suits. And then there are all the accessories: waders, rubber boots, gloves, and last but not least the gas mask.


Who can say no to a man in uniform? Uniform can be uniforms from the military, the police or for example a security company. What’s important is that you look like someone who won’t take no for an answer.


Camouflage or combat gear from the military is very popular. Today you can buy many different kinds of fashionable clothes made of camouflage fabric, but not all of it complies with the SLM Copenhagen dress code. The army dress code is the sort of gear that soldiers wear, e.g. camouflage trousers and an army vest or shirt.


First of all: to be a skinhead means very short hair on your head. Apart from that, typical skinhead gear is a polo shirt from Lonsdale or Fred Perry, a pair of bleached jeans and a bomber jacket. Braces and long 20-30 hole boots are an extra plus.


Construction is work wear, from construction industry, earth work, workmen or farming.


Traditional, masculine denim and not the latest street fashion denim. For example jeans, a vest or a jacket are acceptable, given that the overall impression is OK.


If you don’t have anything to wear, you can always be naked. To be partly or completely naked is ok at SLM Copenhagen, but you must always wear boots or shoes for safety reasons.


Sportwear means gear from traditional masculine sport disciplines such as football, rugby, wresling, boxing etc.


Most popular are black boots or “heavy” black/dark shoes. Rubber boots and waders as part of rubber (or any other outfit) are obviously always ok. Sneakers are accepted if they are part of a fetich outfit, such as skinhead, rubber, sportswear or in combination with being naked. Sandals and loafers are not accepted.

The bouncer has the final word

The dress code is a set of guidelines for the bouncer on duty at the door at the time. No member can demand to be let in by referring to the dress code if the bouncer feels that that member is not following his interpretation of it. If a member or a guest plans on a minimal compliance with the dress code, he should be prepared to be rejected at the door. For further information refer to the house rules.
