    $\begingroup$ Something about "the island lifestyle" , see nasa.gov/press-release/… . The island is Hawaii, I think. Very special kind of Hawaii shirt. $\endgroup$ – Uwe Oct 28 '17 at 13:14

    $\begingroup$ It wasn't uncommon to see Hawaiian shirts on Fridays around Mission Operations Directorate at JSC. Seemed more popular in the late 90s/early 00s. $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble Nov 1 '17 at 11:49
