Because I am genuinely interested in sowing division and loathing amoungst my fellow humans, I am seeking to understand the consensus opinion on Tommy Bahama shirts, or Tommy Bahama knock-offs.

Are they just a form of re-branded Aloha shirt or a distinct type unto their own?

Are the people who wear them better or worse than people who don't wear button shirts when the temperatures climb?

Which is best to wear to work on Friday?

I will say I do not own a Tommy Bahama shirt but I own some Aloha shirts.

Costco over-sized Hawaiian shirts superior IMO

Tommy's are fine IMO as long as they don't have those huge stupid logos of cocktails or parrots or bill fish other stupid stuff on the back. If they are simple solid colors or floral print (like a Hawaiian shirt) then they are cool by me.

It depends.

Will you be pairing these with some bedazzled True Religion jeans, snake skinned cowboy boots, and a fedora while you blare some Jimmy Buffet?

Are you a fat douche who thinks putting bait on a hook is a “sport”?

If so, TB is for you.

I work in an office on Oahu that is filled with senior fed government employees. The only people who wear Tommy Bahama shirts here are transplant kooks.

The shirts are hideous and I don't know any Hawaii local that would be caught dead wearing one.

Expensive but I like some of them. As an alternative, I highly recommend Quiksilver Silver Edition shirts. Btw, I always wear my aloha shirts untucked.

I like the Tommy Bahama folding beach chair from Costco. It reclines and has a pillow--you can nap in it. The shirts? Meh.

Always bugged me to see 'em tucked in.
Front Street tourists in Bermuda shorts, black Oxfords, knee-high socks, tucked floral shirts....
