I was in Target last night and saw (or should I say bought) these really cool tiki boxers and tiki pj bottoms. The boxers are dark army green with three tiki's in the corner and it says "dance with the natives". The pj bottoms are the same but with just the pictures of the tiki's all over. The boxers were $4.99 and the pj bottoms were $9.99. Super tikirific!

Thanks for the tip - I think I pick up a pair or two.

Extend the time that much longer to do my laundry.

Target also has a string of patio lights with cylindrical wooden covers made up of sticks lashed together. And, they have a metal and glass pineapple sculpture that might fit well on an outdoor tiki bar. They've also resurrected the old burlap-look insulated plastic glasses - not tiki, but if you favor insulated glasses these are less in conflict with the theme than most.

Hmmm..naaaw, those are not Tikis, more like cartoony characters with square humanoid faces. Disappointing, after there is so much good Tiki source material out now. The stuff old Navy had out in the late 90s was better.

Sven, I agree. Yesterday was much better than today could ever be (unless it becomes a 'yesterday' tomorrow).

I miss the late 90s. The late 80s were even better. I bet the late deuce double oughts are gonna suck. Oh well.

I agree. My Old Navy tiki boxers are a much better representation to tiki.

However, I can't let the perfect stand in the way of the tiki. I still got the drawstring pajama pants (didn't find the boxers).

Why is olive green the color of choice?

They remind me of the comic book "Milk & Cheese," but only a little...

I got my pair of the boxers and they are super-comfortable to sleep in, tiki or not.

Why do the boxers say "Kuta Beach, Bali?"

I believe that Bali has substantial tiki similarities, although I didn't go to Kuta Beach, yet am I missing something?

"It" already has. But yes you're right, the glory days of the late 90's where something else, with old navy and all.

Hi all, i'm new to the forum. I came across this topic and thought I'd throw my 2 cents in. I have a pt gig at Target and we just got in some very cool bamboo stuff. Look in the candle section (Green world) and you will find various bamboo and pineapple candles and holders. Very cool a 2 foot bamboo candle holder with a hurricane glass inside. I just got this job, so I am still looking around the store for tiki related items and would be happy to post what I find if you folks would like!
