Extremely nice threads. This will make a good little library of inspiration for some designer somewhere. I have to say though, I hate photo albums with "next" buttons that skip around on the page.

Aloha shirts, not Hawaiian shirts. I'll never get used to people calling them Hawaiian shirts.

I love Hawaiian shirts. They are brilliance made out of cotton and rayon. Alas, I sold off most of mine once I realized I'd probably never fit into them again. Fah.

The best place to pick them up in the South Bay area of Los Angeles is Quality Thrift on Artesia in Long Beach. Piles upon piles of shirts for $5 or less.

Very nice pics. One measure of the quality of a fish print is by the size of the fish's lips. OK, but which way does the scale go?

Pineapples are symbolic, representing: hospitality, fyi.
