I tend to spend the most money on safe, reliable clothing–flannel suits, English shoes, olive drab jackets with a million pockets–stuff I’ve been wearing for years. When it comes to bolder stuff, stuff I’m not totally sure of, I’m likely to look for a deal (which can be good, as more of-the-moment clothing is more likely to go on sale than “staples”). A $300 aloha shirt? Not likely. But for $35? Hey, why not.
Reyn Spooner, a longtime make of aloha shirts, has a bunch of their shirts on sale for <$50 and free shipping with code SPRING17–they’re known for using reverse prints, where the bolder, higher contrast side of the fabric is inside the shirt, and for button-down collars and popovers vs the usual camp/open collar. We’ve recommended such shirts in the past–they can be a nice change of pace for warmer weather.
