Tiki Loa, you possess an interesting turn of phrase, might I ask - from where do you hale?

... and do you have any friends named Mick and Ernest?




Trader Mic and Ernest Lemingway caught some heat on another thread I guess- I have been accused of haling from the "Midwest" but prefer to think of myself as a refugee from the Swiss Family Clyde. File me as a fan of Tiki who may rather be caught lolling in the sand than sittin' on a stool. Cheers

This isn't really the right thread for this post but I don't find a better place. My brother-in-law's father passed away last week and I attended his funeral today. This picture of him is from the late 40s in a vintage aloha shirt

A few posts ago, it was asked where we weigh in on Tommy Bahama. I thought that was worth responding to. I used to LOVE Tommy Bahama, but I feel in the past five years, their designs have lost their former whimsical quality and become almost just staid, classy aloha shirts...which is totally boring. Obviously, they are filling a niche & more power to them if it's working for them. But in the past, their designs were really cute, had a sense of humour & kitsch, and that is no longer present in any great amount. I would pick them up at a thrift store, but that's about it.
I've had a number of viewers on my Youtube channel (Kaiwaza) request I do a video on my Hawaiian shirt collection, as I always wear them in my videos. I really don't relish the thought of pressing them all, etc., etc., but I think I might break down & do a top 10 or Dirty Dozen Favorites or something video shortly.

Here's a pic of a Sun Surf repro 1950s Aloha shirt I found recently on Etsy. Nice to have an original but a faithful reproduction is still nice to wear.
