High Noon: What Are You Wearing?

You don't have to answer that. But me, I went with my first Hawaiian shirt of the season today. I believe I have about a dozen, almost all purchased on sale. Years ago, I was suspicious of those wearing such garments. I regarded these shirts as the uniform of what Calvin Trillin once described as “the party as a verb crowd.” Serious people didn't wear them to work. Then, as if to emphasize their absurdity, we had a stretch here at the paper where certain Fridays would be a designated “Hawaiian Shirt Day” in the newsroom. Yes, forced frivolity at its finest/Paul Turner, The Slice. More here.

Question: What are you wearing today? And/or: Do you wear Hawaiian shirts?
