Even before then. My dad used to have a shirt like that. The film From Here to Eternity, made in the 1950s, was located in Hawaii and I seem to recall the men in that film wearing similar and that is probably where the style started.

Middle-aged men have always been drawn to that style because they don't have to tuck it in and it hides their middle-aged paunch.

Think "Bealls".

One rule to remember about Hawaiian shirts; it's a sin to tuck it in.

I think pineapples/palm trees especially are cute, and flamingos whimsical, though I admit it's not something I'm likely to buy/wear/display (depending on what the item is).

I DO notice a LOT of pineapple fashion jewelry for ladies & I even got a nice pair of pineapple earrings a couple of weeks ago. I've always liked pineapples (& lemons). They're fun.
At least we mostly seem to be "over" mustaches on everything. *headdesk* (I was getting a little sick of the flip-flop theme, too.)

Pineapple motif was very common in Colonial America. You see it on fabrics, ceramics, glassware, furniture, accessories, architectural ornamentation. I always wondered why. Had the civilized world just discovered it on their world travels?
