A BBQ is a great place to gather and enjoy good camaraderie as well as delicious food. And the people you'll meet there will be as varied as the menu. From the hardworking host to the diligent chef (and the guy 'supervising' the cooking) to the fellow handing out business cards and networking or the boisterous guy who's had a bit too much to drink, there really are all types of people at a BBQ.

The Busy Host

This is the planner, the organizer, the people gatherer... He's wearing a casual outfit consisting of a lightweight blue polo shirt in fine, 100% Pima cotton over classic rinse straight-fit denims, so he's ready for any contingency, whether it's playing a rousing game of catch before the meal or running to the store for more buns.

The stretch denims from our Special Denim Capsule Collection are made from cotton and spandex for an extra comfy slim fit. A zipper fly, two front pockets, two back pockets, a coin pocket, and custom metal hardware complete the inviting look.

The Cook

The consummate grillmaster, he's cool and comfortable in a light blue linen shirt over dark blue chino shorts in a fun palm tree print. The summer-weight 100% linen shirt in a subtle chambray weave and classic fit has a handy pocket for stashing that secret marinade recipe.

The classic cotton twill shorts in a cotton and spandex blend have a 9" inseam in our standard Bleecker fit. The added stretch from our special blend of fabric plus the stretch waistband will keep even the busiest cook comfortable, while five pockets (two side, two back, and one coin) will keep him and his recipes and secret spice mixes organized.

The Life of the Party

He never arrives without a bottle of wine (or a case of beer) for the host, and he'll be the first one to offer a toast. He's wearing a soft coral tee in super comfy 100% Pima cotton over navy varsity shorts. These cozy knit shorts are ready for the party to begin with their added stretch from a blend of polyester, viscose, and spandex.

A 9" inseam, two front and one back pocket, and Soft Touch fabric ensures he stays comfortable and ready for fun in these shorts no matter what the day brings!

The Over-Achiever

Even on his days off, this guy is always working — he'll even be wearing a blazer if the weather allows! He's wearing his version of BBQ casual, including a silver short-sleeve oxford shirt in a comfortable poly blend over black pants. The newly engineered spandex tech pants feature a straight fit and a flexible waistband with a silicon grip. The five handy pockets let him carry plenty of business cards, and the moisture-wicking fabric keeps him cool and dry as he's adding people to his network or tracking down his next great business deal.

Mr. Spotlight

You can't miss this guy because of his penchant for bright colors and bold patterns. He'll definitely be seen in this bright orange tropical print shirt over green pull-on dock shorts! The camp shirt is in our signature summer-ready rayon blend, while the stretchy corduroy shorts feature an elastic waistband with drawstring, a 7" inseam, and three pockets.
