What is the Dress Code for a Barbeque Party?\nAlthough an outdoor barbeque party is a fairly casual event, it doesn’t mean we can’t look our best in front of our friends and family. The most common dress code for an outdoor barbeque party, whether it’s at home in the backyard or at the park, is smart casual.\nThe fun, friendly air of the party calls for an equally comfortable, yet playful outfit. So leave the tie at home and opt for a classic smart casual look for this enjoyable event.\n\n\n Start With a Breathable Shirt\n\nBeing more often than not a warm-weather event, it’s important to choose breathable clothes you are going to stay cool and comfortable in. To start with, select a linen or cotton shirt—as both of these materials offer excellent breathability in summer and spring. Instead of clinging to you like other fabrics, both of these materials are light and airy, while also offering moisture-wicking and quick-drying properties.\nWhether you choose a short sleeve shirt style or long sleeve shirt and roll the sleeves is up to you. However, being a relaxed, casual event, don’t be afraid to have fun with the patterns or prints on your shirt.\nChecks, stripes and floral prints are perfect for your barbeque party outfit. On the other hand, selecting a more neutral style such as a light blue or white linen shirt means you can add colour through your pants or shorts instead.\n \n\n\n Keep Cool in a Pair of Shorts\n\nMuch like your choice of shirt, choosing the right pair of shorts will help keep you cool and comfortable around the hot barbeque. Depending on your style, we recommend either our brightly-coloured swim shorts or versatile linen shorts.\nAt home in the water as much as they are on land, our swim shorts feature a huge variety of fun prints and colours, including starfishes, turtles, stripes, bright colour blocks and classic floral patterns. These shorts pair well with a single-colour, non-printed, plainer-styled cotton or linen shirt.\nOn the other hand, if you opted for a fun printed shirt, either cotton or linen, our classic linen blend shorts are a smart, comfortable option. With a range of available colours, including blue, green, sand and white, you can easily complement a colour in your shirt with these linen shorts. For example, we like to pair our dark blue linen shorts with a white linen shirt, or our sand linen shorts with a pattern blue floral shirt.\n \n\n\n What About Pants?\n\nIf you want to protect your legs from the sun while still keeping comfortable, our featherweight pants are another excellent option. Offered in sand, navy blue and light stone, these stretch cotton pants are made to keep you cool all summer long due to their lightweight fabric and comfortable cut.\nOur featherweight stretch pants look smart when paired with a patterned shirt, such as checks, stripes or printed florals, and our colourful linen shirt range. Choose a colour that complements your shirt and you are ready to go!\n \n\n\n Bring a Jumper Just In Case\n\nWhile summer is known for its excellent warm weather, from time to time the sky will change for the worse faster than expected. If clouds or a cool change is forecasted to happen that day, don’t be afraid to bring a light knit or jumper just in case.\n\nFor a smart, timeless look, a linen sports jacket will further elevate your look while keeping your comfortable in the possibly humid conditions. Another suitable option is a lightweight knit, such as a V-neck sweater or crew neck jumper, both of which can be easily packed in a bag without taking up too much space.\n \n \nWhether you’re in charge of the grill, preparing the potato salad or keeping the kids busy, look your best with our range of men’s shirts at GAZMAN now.
