I think this one is my favorite of all the ones you've posted.

When I am out and about this is the shirt that gets noticed. Sometimes
I get asked if it's camouflage, the reaction is wonderful when they spot
that it's the silhouettes of pin-up girls.

Great hat, Bill. Does the color have a name on the tag? I have a Peacock green Strat (which is a buff or muted green that looks similar to yours) and I'm trying to find a modern equivalent felt.

The hat and shirt compliment each perfectly. I'm into green of late. By the way that rather dapper bowler that you were wearing in the What Hat thread, my bank manager always wears a bowler, not in the financial sector by any chance, are you?

I'm in higher education. However, my wife wishes I were more adept at finance so we could get to our retirement goals more quickly!

My wife really dislikes this shirt. The fish are just too much. What say you?

Anyway, I paired it with a Northwest beaver Fespa for work tonight.

I think the artwork is quite beautiful, and it's a very nice shirt. Normally my tastes in clothing are a bit more conservative, but I've been taking steps out of my comfort zones lately so I'd wear it happily. :cool:

Big Dogs Hawaiian shirt no longer made. Big Dogs makes mostly high quality t-shirts. I think this Hawaiian shirt might date to ~1990. It goes back a ways.

That is quite a shirt, it's rare to see the front panels so accurately lined up. You all compliment Tina when she makes my shirts thus. Speaking of which, I have finally gotten around to sorting my Hawaiian shirts.

Does anyone know if there's an Aloha Shirts Anonymous?

I just picked this shirt up at goodwill. To cold/rainy here in Tennessee to wear it yet. Eventually I'll pair it with a fedora. Anyone have an estimate on its vintage? The tag says large but it fits like a modern small.

Just into the new year, Tina asked me if I could go to the supermarket for a few provisions. Wandering around trying to find the items on my list, I heard, sung in tune:

"I'm praying for rain in California
So the grapes can grow and they can make more wine."

It was Phil, he looks after our computers and he's in love with my juke box.

So in my best but pathetic singing voice, I replied:

"And I'm sitting in a honky in Chicago
With a broken heart and a woman on my mind."

Phil was up for it now, show off, just because he can sing:

"I matched the man behind the bar for the jukebox
And the music takes me back to Tennessee."

By now Phil was standing beside me, so other shoppers got a duet.

"And they asked who's the fool in the corner crying
I say a little ole wine drinker me."

That all came about, oh and by the way, we had a ripple of applause too, that came about because I was wearing a shirt depicting the famous vineyards of France.

"Love the shirt," Phil said, adding: "One of Tina's?" "Of course," I replied.
He wished me a happy new year, and passed his wishes onto Tina,
then, just as we went our separate ways, he looked back and quipped.
"Don't give up the day job." "No chance of that Phil."
