Your summer barbecue outfit

By Kasia Hastings, 7 June 2016

Barbecue season is upon us, so we’ve compiled an outfit with all the accoutrements you need for a look lit enough to set the charcoal alight yourself.

While we can’t technically promise this outfit will enhance your barbecuing abilities, it will certainly see you through a long afternoon of meat grilling and beer guzzling. Whether you’re a real coal man or a gas kind of guy, the recipe for sartorial success this summer involves a healthy serving of prints, layers and appropriate literature. 


Start your ‘fit off with a solid T-shirt, like this longline acid-wash tee. It’ll provide a good splash of colour without leaving you too vulnerable to stains. Next, add a short-sleeved shirt in a similar palette like this black floral-print shirt. A reverse bleed keeps the colours muted and makes your print-clash look carefully curated. Lighten things up on your bottom half with a pair of cream distressed denim shorts and add a pair of Vans Old Skool kicks to sear things off, skater-style. Finally, grab Myron Mixon's BBQ Rules bible and a fresh spatula, and you're ready to hit the coals.
