Button-down Banana

Written By bryanboy

I took my new banana print Prada shirt out for a spin yesterday. I love how it’s kitschy and cheeky… however, I’m curious how it looks like to the un-fashion-trained eye. Is this shirt the designer equivalent of the ubiquitous Hawaiian floral-print short-sleeve shirts that middle-aged American men like to wear when they go on holidays?

Anyhoo, I had a funny conversation with my boyfriend yesterday. I was whining how I have nothing* to wear and I’ve worn pretty much everything that I have. I love how he understands what mileage means when it comes to fashion without me explaining the whole “cost-per-use” concept.

*When I say “nothing”, it means “nothing new, nothing fresh, nothing unworn, nothing photographed”.

    lolz! NO, definitely! the way someone like you added twist to the shirt made it far different from the aloha shirts. yellow-red combi works all the time! somehow, by some people who are able to carry them, effortlessly!

    So Cool. at first I thought where have I seen this before?! It reminded me of some “Pseudo-Hawaiian” shirts from the early 90’s. It looks great with the red. I can see men wearing it with cargo shorts!

  3. I think you should design something entirely new of your own. I’d love to see what you would come up with. It could be the start of the Bryan Boy label.

  4. Okay, Bryan, i need one of those hats! can we exchange money and you send me one…. Please! What other colours does it come in?
