The summertime is great -- good vibes, barbecues and some people's desires to wear less and less clothing. My only qualm with hot weather is that it limits my sartorial options to a few clutch items. When the situation calls for more than a white t-shirt and jeans, but the weather only allows for short sleeves, I'm left scratching my head.
However, when executed properly, the Hawaiian shirt can be killer. Star of Hollywood, the 1950s American label recently revived by Toyo Enterprise (which also owns Buzz Rickson), does it just right with a Spring/Summer 2015 offering of cabana-style shirting. With a focus on the 1950s, the label produces print-heavy button-downs in lightweight and colorful fabrics. Forget about florals; you can find shrunken heads, vipers and other vintage favorites like the diamond print. See the offering above and shop it all in-store and online now at Self Edge.
