What is up with 40-50 year old men wearing Hawaiian shirts? Seriously, everywhere I turn nowadays, a guy is decked out in one, with the top button unbuttoned just enough to expose his graying chest hair. Is this the latest fad for middle-age men?

Sure, the shirt looks comfortable and loose and casual, but I can think of several other types of shirts that exhibit those qualities. Why Hawaiian? And get this: some of these men even wear them with pleats.

    It's been the look for middle-aged men for many years. In the nineties, all the Hawaiian shirt wearing guys also had the balding in the front, graying ponytail in the back going on up top too.

    The best advice I can give, is to tell you to stay away from Jimmy Buffett concerts - but your REAL friends have probably already warned you about them.

    I've seen them worn with pleated SHORTS! That's a double threat.

    Probably one of the biggest draws to them: they hide girth.

    I've actually seen them on people under 40... yes, I know, it's shocking!

    It's almost as disturbing as swingers parties with hotdogs.

    That certainly puts the nail in the coffin of your pro-pleat position.
