Bill's shirts and hats with the fabulous hatbands inspired me to see how I match up hats with shirts. So, with apologies if you have seen these photos previously, and further apologies to Stefan (Steur) for hijacking his week in hats, given the glorious weather we have recently experienced, here's my week in Aloha shirts. All of which were made by my talented lady.

Tina describes the hat and shirt match as the juxtaposition. I think she swallowed the dictionary:

Juxtaposition is an act or instance of placing two elements close together or side by side. This is often done in order to compare/contrast the two, to show similarities or differences.

Quite so dear, but I simply mix & match, the finish and appearance of my shirts is of your skill and talent.

Plagiarize? I try to copy your shirts -unapologetically!
I have an admission to make, it has political implications so apologies for flouting F/L rules. My wife and I used to visit the US at least twice a year. Knowing my fascination for the American civil war, Her Ladyship indulged me as we visited war sites and battlefields in: Louisiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.

What do you notice about that list? It omits Texas, & Arkansas, the last two States, both of which were part of the Confederacy. One day we hope to put that right. What a dream, visiting Texas and see us both photographed, here on the Lounge, in our respective Aloha shirts.

I am from Newport News, Virginia. That is 13 miles from where Robert E Lee was raised. I went to Stonewall Jackson elementary. We still go home to visit family. So, we might meet up in Virginia.
