My (Aqua) Blue Heaven Friday: Shirt Happens

Photobucket

It's another Aqua Blue Heaven Friday, kids! Today's post is gonna be like Mini Me, on the short side, because I have very important lounging-around, junk food-eating and all around slacking to do, and you know me: if you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself.

I heard from a peep or 2 that they'd like to see more stuff for men around here. I can only assume they meant boobs, beer and beef jerky, but, sorry to disappoint, vintage clothing for men will have to do. I've been looking around for a while now and like a lot of the aqua themes here, finding cool vintage men's shirts in some kind of aqua isn't exactly easy. Of course, there are tons of Hawaiian shirts in aquas, but I didn't have Hawaiian shirts in mind. I didn't find many regular old standard 50's and 60's shirts. I wonder why that is? I'm sure they had to be popular back in the day, no? Maybe it was just an off week for finding them? It couldn't be that aqua is too girlie because, hell, men were wearing pink in the 50's. Even ol' muy macho Rico Suave himself Ricky Ricardo wore pink on occasion. This is too much thinking and it's cutting into my Twinkies and Maury Povich "Who My Baby Daddy?!" time, so please enjoy these vintage 50's-60's men's shirts!

Vintage 50's Campus Rockabilly Shirt. Now this is what I'm talking about! This one is killer. You can't really see, but the collar actually has little red and white hearts on it!

  2. plain blue shirts always remind me of the uniform our bus conductors and drivers wore. then, when i was a flight stewardess, the guys' uniform jacket's a medium cornflower blue. just like mint green is usually the colour of hospital staff's uniform :P

    i have a rockability dress that i got from etsy for five bucks! i like the colours on the Tiki shirt.

  3. I LOVE looking at vintage men's shirts. In fact, I'm not opposed to wearing them, myself! I'm always happy if I can find nice-looking ones in my size.
