Fashion’s Spring/Summer Tropical Storm

When I started on my mission for the essential Spring/Summer shirt to add to my look. The prerequisite was that it had to be a classic shirt that made a bold statement. Think about it man, who has not walked around spitting Tony Montana quotes as a clear right of passage, to channel the essence of Al Pacino’s epic portrayal in Scarface.

It has been 29 years since the original release of Scarface—long enough for established and emerging designers to be influenced by his red Hawaiian shirt (not to mention Future, whose “Tony Montana” anthem is a permanent fixture across the seaboard). Just look at it: the color is rich as the Cuban pride of the character; it’s in his bloodline. The genealogy of the red shirt carries on from urban to preppy, young and old. The bold, modern updates of Tony Montana’s shirt is brought to you by the best. Levi’s, Stussy, and ASOS are just a few brands who channel this season’s tropical storm of Scarface nostalgia. Like Tony said, “This is paradise, I’m tellin’ ya.”


Levi’s 1950’s Hawaiian Shirt Red (Left)
Price: $198.00

Tracy’s Take: Pairing this shirt with some OG 501’s in a dark denim wash, cuffed at the bottom, and Dr. Martin combat boots, create a ’50s vintage look.

Religion Vegas Hawaiian Shirt (Right)
Price: $87.26
Buy Now: ASOS

Tracy’s Take: Black slim jeans, black small brim straw hat, and black Converse Chuck Taylors are the signature staples to coin this style.


Stussy Hawaiian Shirt (Left)
Price: $78.00
Buy Now: Stussy.com

Tracy’s Take: There is nothing better to throw on than a pair of camouflage fatigues or camo shorts with your favorite pair of Vans, and you are ready to hit it.

ASOS Hawaiian Print Shirt (Right)
Price: $45.45
Buy Now: ASOS

Tracy’s Take: Mix up your prints. Rules are made to be broken. Bust out your loud geo ’80s printed shorts and Nike Dunks. Trust, you are sure not to be missed.
