Do you cringe when you see a guy wearing a Hawaiian shirt?  Assuming you’re not at a JIMMY BUFFETT concert or actually in Hawaii . . . or working in morning radio.  You’re not alone.  A lot of people hate Hawaiian shirts.

And researchers at the University of Hawaii at Manoa actually did a scientific study on why people hate guys wearing Hawaiian shirts . . . and the most common words used to describe people in them.

Virtually all the words people used to describe guys in Hawaiian shirts are negative, including:  Tourist, vulgar, bad taste, foolish, sloppy, inappropriate, inauthentic, bizarre, chubby, and low class.
