This actually is BAD news.

Designer Alfred Shaheen passed away at age 86 this past week.

Who is he you say?

Why, he was the reason Jimmy Buffet was born! Well not literally, but he is the reason you can find Hawaiian shirts EVERYWHERE. He began to mass produce the shirts shortly after Hawaii became a state in 1959 and has been booming in business ever since. He was making $4 Million a year when that was still A LOT OF MONEY.

Well Bless your heart Alfred and I hope there is nothing but hawaiian print shirts in your big closet in the sky.

Salute.
