    A friend got a trad Hawaiian shirt and wondered why the buttons faced in. He liked it but said it was a hassle to put on.

    Vikings wrote a song for Johnny Cash, too. “I’ve Been Everywhere”.

    Very few know this.

    Today though I'm wearing this, I hope the co-workers brought their shades-

    I'd say more they are totally for haoles.
    And, you know, rearrange those letters just a bit, and they are for those types, too! :)

    I have exactly one Hawaiian shirt, a Kahala. I don’t know where I got it but am guessing my wife bought it at an estate sale? I love it: it breathes well so it’s great for summer days or dinner out in that season. I’ve had it forever but it looks good.

    I treasure the thing and treat it well, rarely washing it then a brief dryer on low and then out onto a hanger. I thought I’d get a couple more so I can wear one a bit more often, then I looked them up. Yikes, and the good ones are never on sale!

    Balance that against the fact that they are formal wear. Still lots cheaper than a decent suit and tie. If I can’t wear my Kahalas there, I ain’t goin’:cool:

    who buys new clothes? i mean, other than socks and underwear. I mean, what am I, made of money, or something? I gotta save where I can, so I can have way way too much musical gear

    No problem. I’m glad to contribute to your repertoire. The enigma wrapped in a riddle layered with cynicism that is blowtorch:eek:

    Many moons ago (about 30 years worth), I was hired by a now famous guitar player to do a luau theme house party gig.
    We all “shirted up” and showed up to do the gig.
    When we arrived at the palatial home, we noticed there were no people/cars around.
    Now famous leader guy knocked on the door.
    We were graciously informed that we were exactly a week early.
    Doh!
    At least it wasn’t my fault.

    I've got one, buried deep in one of my closets. I got it for a friend's luau-themed bachelor party and haven't worn it since.

    I opt for different colored linen. I'm understated/boring like that.

    I just realized I lied here. Just a couple months back my instrumental sorta surf band debuted as a featured showcase at a local open mic night. I was badgered into "shirting up" that night, to match up with everyone else in the band.

    We played Miserlou. AND we've got a trumpet player :cool:
