Anyone collect Disney Hawaiian shirts?
I love Disney Hawaiian shirts and collect them -- they make great practical collectibles, because (duh!) you can actually wear them. And I do -- I wear a Hawaiian shirt every day except for wedding and funerals. Luckily, I work at a university and the dress code is very relaxed -- the fact that I wear socks and athletic shoes means I'm more "dressed-up" than some people!
I have about eight Disney-related shirts, and would love to find more. However, there's no one, as far as I can find, that keeps any sort of catalog of what is and has been available. Many of the shirts I've only seen once, and it isn't unusual to search eBay every couple of weeks and find one I'd never previously seen. Just today, in fact, in fact, I found a Reyn Spooner Lilo & Stitch shirt listed, and it's the first time I've ever seen that one. Wrong size for me, unfortunately; I'd love to have it as that's one of my top-five favorite Disney films, but there's no point in buying a shirt I cannot wear. But at least now I know they exist!
Does anyone else collect these? And does anyone know of any sort of web site that catalogs the shirts that exist?
My two most recent acquisitions are the Reyn Spooner Cars 2 shirt and the Shag-designed WDW 40th anniversary shirt -- I felt lucky to get that last one because it is a limited edition, but I happened to go to WDW just a day or two after it was released.
A few years ago I was in line at Test Track and saw a guy wearing another shirt I've only seen once -- it had an all-over pattern composed completely of signs from WDW attractions and shops. In fact, it may have been all Magic Kingdom stuff. Only saw it once, and I was able to find one solitary reference to it existing online (without photos).
I think these are great items to collect, and if no one has a site that tracks them, someone should start!
