I think ATP would rather folks post a single shirt at a time
and not entire collections but, damn it... I don't think he'll mind...

[But I will!, extraneous photos and comments deleted.. . - Haka]




THIS is my all time fave, very, very comfy...

Had a few too many rums last night and woke up in a daze about 2:30am...

...remembering I had the strangest dream... now, I've never met ATP...

...but I swear - that in this dream - I saw him wandering, alone, through some desolate wasteland...

...luckily he was dressed in an immaculate Hawaiian shirt...




That reminds me of a joke,

This guy manages to finish work early Friday afternoon and arrives at his favourite Tiki bar
to find that it was all but deserted. He orders a zombie, thinking it might take his mind off
the week he had just endured, seats himself comfortably in a beautifully decorated nook,
and settles down to relax.

A few minutes pass, and suddenly he hears a tiny voice pipe up -

"Wow, that's a gorgeous Hawaiian shirt you're wearing."

He spins around, but no-one is there.

Perplexed, he eventually settles back to his drink, and all is quiet for a while.

Suddenly another, different tiny voice says -

"Yes, and it compliments those fabulous casual trousers perfectly."

This time, the guy leaps to his feet and looks all around, but as before, there's no-one there.

He sits down absolutely bewilderedly, shaking his head and thinking - Man, I know this week was
stressful, but I think I'm loosing my mind.

All is quiet for a short while, when yet another tiny voice chips in -

"It sure does, and those shoes! a stunning ensemble entirely!"

The guy springs off his seat, thoroughly inspects the surrounding area... only to find nothing,
and sees no-one.

He stands there for a while, finally takes his seat again, but now he's getting really worried.

Suddenly, another tiny little voice exclaims -

"Not only that! But when you sit down, it can be seen that you have chosen the EPITOME of the perfect sock".

By this time the guy is almost a total wreck... hair awry, sweating, and breathing heavily...

Just then, a waiter walks past, and realizing the guy is in distress asks what is the matter.

The guy hurriedly describes what has just happened, and ask whether or not he should go straight to a doctor.

The waiter - who happens to be Australian - thinks for a while, and as a look of understanding comes over his face,

says to the guy -



"Nah, y' not loos'n yer mind, mate - it's just the peanuts on the table there... they're compliment'ry

I just came across this old post of your excellent shirt.

I bought the matching swim shorts to this Tropicana shirt a few years ago. I always wondered if there was a shirt to match - and you have it.

I do wear them but alas, as a style from 50s/60s you look like Harry Highpants in 'em. Sorta dents your cool when everyone falls about laughing as you walk out of the cabana.

Older is better! One of my favorite Tiki shirts I picked up at a thrift store in Ventura, I call it the Amoeba Tiki.

Ok so hears the deal, fat guys totally use up their Aloha Shirts and or ANY cool
clothing they have.

Sooo there is not a lot of old cool large sizes of cool or Aloha Shirts out there to
buy.
Tommy Bahama makes large and really large sizes of new shirts.
I for one like them and they fit, but the dry cleaning is a bitch.

Plus people were smaller back then, so would guess they did not even make too many large and holly shit did you see that fat a$$ sizes.

Always wanted to start a chain of stores called Phat A$$ Tees and sell shirts to the large and larger sizes (and small pretty people clothes too) at vacation locals.
You would make a ton.
