    No idea. If it was summer I'd go cream shorts, leather flip flops and a long sleeve shirt with the sleeves rolled up I guess.

    Sounds like some wannabe middle class wanker has made something up for a pretentious bbq in a shitty suburban area.

    Well it all worked out. I wore some khakis and a nice polo shirt untucked and it was perfect. A few folks were more dressed, others less.

    Apparently, the host had dress shorts and a Tommy Bahama shirt in mind, but most dressed up a little more than that.

    So FYI....if you ever need to dress Patio Casual

    If I was hanging out on a patio I would probably be so drunk that I could be super casual.



    Maybe even..................too casual.
