Another Fashion Travesty From the Wall Street Journal

Another fashion travesty from the Wall Street Journal.  The June 7 “Personal Journal” section features a story about aloha shirts.  Most folks know what these are: large, airy, comfortable, always including bright patterns.  Tropical, in fact.  The classic Hawaii tourist joint Hilo Hattie’s still carries them:

But now we are told the “new, improved” shirts are “slimmer and more modern:”

News flash: Hawai’ians are big.  Not “slim,” not “modern.”  Big.  Aloha shirts are supposed to cover a Hawaiian, not some underfed Wall Street Journal reporter.  Even though we at pfpfp support starvation, using Aloha shirts to promote it is a travesty.
