Urban battle rattle?
I found this image on Gab yesterday. (Clickit to biggit.)
I presume it's riffing off the New York Times' suggestion that Hawaiian shirts have somehow become associated with the "boogaloo" movement - something I'm not certain is any more than progressive angst. As for being associated with armed people, well, yes, the pattern and loose cut of Hawaiian shirts does help to disguise the fact that one may have a gun underneath it. That's very useful to those of us with concealed carry permits. Sadly, following the NYT's article, the shirts are likely to be of no further value for that, because too many people will associate them with armed men - thus nullifying their concealment utility.
Nevertheless, considering that my buddy Lawdog is renowned for his Hawaiian shirts (having even, on occasion, worn them while dispensing his well-known - and frequently very amusing - brand of justice), I think he should sue for law enforcement and tactical copyright infringement!
