The Hawaiian shirt is back baby. The shirt that has long languished as the go-to shirt for barbecuing dads, drunk uncles, and big galoots of all kinds has returned to the runway against all odds. H&M, Urban Outfitters, and other major men's retailers are lining their shelves with Hawaiian and floral offerings. Fashionable celebrities have been spotted in tropical print tops. And yes, trend pieces have been written.
