To be honest, I think in general they're unattractive. I have seen guys pull them off, however it's a very, very small percentage.
But, I think some guys can pull them off - not in a stylish way mind you - but just in a humorous way. I saw a guy once who had on a really awful-patterned Hawaiian shirt, and he knew it looked dreadful, but in a weirdly paradoxical way I think that was the purpose. He just completely embraced it and totally rocked it out. However he had the "joking, fun-loving" personality to be able to do this so...
But again to reiterate, they usually just don't go over well on most guys. If you really want to wear one though then you should, don't let other people dictate your style :)
I had to vote C. I think they're awful, the vast majority of them. I'm not going to like harass a guy for wearing them, or say it's a deal breaker or anything stupid like that, but assuming I know the guy, I'd probably tease about it and jokingly 'nag' for a shirt change, haha.
i think they're really funny :D lol 50 year old guys wear them because they think they're fashionable, but it was always my assumption that younger guys wear them as a sort of parody...surely no one born 1986 or more recent can possibly think that Hawaiian shirts are attractive...
Overall, I don't care for them. It's the equivalent to a girl buying ten of the same shirt in different colors, like at Aeropostale, Hollister, Abercrombie, etc. But if the guy is a nerd, it's just f-ing hilarious, and a real source of entertainment to watch him thinking that it makes him hot.
Hawaiian shirts scream out 'old man' to me! haha. I don't think they look good but for the most part I don't care too much one way or the other about them. The only time I ever thought it looked OK was on this super hot guy at the beach..he was in shorts..the shirt was unbuttoned and just kinda hanging on him..i dunno..the look worked! *fans herself* :P But generally..Hawaiian shirts = bad fashion. :P
Some guys can pull it off. People don't wear them around here though, I don't know clothes are clothes whatever as long as the guy looks good I'm fine. But It would not be my first choice no. So I just chose D.
The ONLY way that this would be SOMEWHAT OK is if the shirt is vintage 1950's or 60's and maybe 70's. Anything newer, NO WAY! If it's 1980's or newer - absolutely NO WAY! And I can't stand the Tommy Bahama clothes either. Gross!
I think that girls HATE them because they represent one thing about men that they're jealous of (but won't admit it). That men can get away with throwing out all fashionable appeal for comfort (because they most certainly are comfortable) and/or practicality.
I use to own two and I wore one to school and some prick told me I was gay for waring it and I told him to go f*** himself next thing I knew the kid had a lighter trying to burn the sleeve of it. I guess people hate them for whatever reason.
Did any other guy start looking through their wardrobe to throw out their hawaiian shirts after reading the girls answers? lol
They only look good in Hawaii.
I know for a fact Hawaiian shirts repulse women, but sometimes a guy has to wear looser clothing to conceal. I carry concealed on my hip, so in the hotter weather I have to wear an unbuttoned shirt (Hawaiian color scheme or not). It's a big burden sometimes.
