The Hawaiian shirt might not be the most humble of wardrobe items and, for the most part, seems to be the uniform of the early retirement, slightly larger than large man eager to show that after a career spent in button down collars and drab suits he can be fun. Don’t allow this fact to deter you. A Hawaiian shirt can be cool, something these fellows know and demonstrate perfectly.

Elvis

For periods this was an Elvis staple. The King loved Hawaii and this was reflected in his wardrobe. His collection of shirts was apparently large and splendid. The acting career of Elvis was punctuated with a variety of films set around the islands and his cool went off the scale whilst exhibiting the finest of shirts playing Chadwick Gates in Blue Hawaii.

Hunter S. Thompson

Famed for his gonzo journalism Hunter loved a Hawaiian shirt. It was part of his style and he tended to opt for particularly loud variations. If you’re in doubt about the ‘cool’ of this guy don’t be. He invented shotgun golf with Bill Murray at 3:30 am.

Tom Selleck

Magnum PI to many people might have actually damaged the image of the Hawaiian shirt. This to me is a pure fallacy. Admittedly, tucking it in to tight white shorts was probably a bad idea. Nevertheless when coupled with a Ferrari and a manly mustache Tom was a resident of hip-ville!

Chunk

Truffle shuffle! The roundest member of the goonies was a purveyor of the Hawaiian shirt and was not averse to raising it on high to perform his signature dance, which quickly became the scourge of portly kids the world over. When it is all said and done though, everyone loved Chunk.

Tony Montana

It is fair to say that Tony Montana brought an edge to the Hawaiian shirt. Notably a chainsaw shaped edge in the film’s most gruesome sequence. Add to this coke-fuelled shoot-outs and plenty of inappropriately aggressive behavior and an association with Scarface would seem like a bad thing. However, whether you see De Palma’s movie as a warning on the corrupting nature of cash and power or an aspirational blueprint on coming from nothing and becoming something, the Hawaiian shirt is central.

Quagmire

He loves the ladies and the ladies love him. And I’m pretty sure it has a lot to do with his trademark Hawaiian shirt. He might have a foot fetish, hate Brian and have unresolved issues with Cheryl Tiegs, but that’s why we love him, right?

Romeo

Baz Luhrman gave the Shakespearean heart throb a bit of a makeover when DiCaprio took the role in his spunky teen opera version of the classic tragedy. One of the updates was to don Romeo in a spectacular blue Hawaiian shirt, along with the rest of his Montague crew as they skulked and quarreled on Verona beach. Inspired.

Ricardo Smith has a fine collection of Hawaiian shirts that light up the Find Me A Gift office where he spends his time reveling in the world of novelty gifts.

You have made the decision to use promotional water bottles as a way to get the word out about your products and services. However, there are a few things that you need to consider before ordering from the supplier. One of these important considerations involves the material that the bottles will be made of. You generally have plastic, glass, aluminum, and stainless steel from which to choose. In this article, I will outline the pros and cons of using plastic promotional sports water bottles to help you make a better informed purchasing decision.

Benefits Of Plastic Promotional Water Bottles

Plastic promotional sports water bottles are some of the least expensive water bottles around, as some can be purchased for less than one dollar apiece, with minimal quantities. If you’re trying to save on costs, then this may be the way to go. You can have plastic sports water bottles made in numerous designs, with molded grips or ridges that aren’t cold on the hands on those cold winter days. ┬áSome plastic promotional sports water bottles are collapsible so that they can be folded up and taken with you when you’re on the go. They are also lightweight when compared to other materials, so that they aren’t as cumbersome.

Drawbacks Of Plastic Sports Water Bottles

However, plastic bottles are not without their problems. For one, bottles that are made out of cheaper materials, like most plastics, don’t get used as much. They usually get thrown away before their useful lives have expired, crowding up the landfills. Some plastics contain a chemical known as bisphenol-A, or BPA, which is a hormone disruptor that has been linked to certain types of cancer. There has always been the concern that the BPA might leach into the liquids that are kept in the bottle. If you decide to buy plastic promotional water bottles, then make sure that the bottles are BPA-free and make sure that people know that when you hand the bottles out to them. Like all things plastic, some plastic bottles may contain a “plastic smell” which may deter some from using the bottles. Remember, that the bottles do you no good if people are throwing them away. Another shortcoming of plastic water bottles is that many of them cannot be used in a microwave oven, or in a dishwasher. This major inconvenience may deter people from using the bottle. Plastic bottles also don’t do the user much good if the user likes to drink coffee, tea, or any other hot liquids. Only bottles made from the hard plastic, polycarbonate, as well as metals are capable of holding both hot and cold liquids.

After reading this article, you should now have a better idea as to whether plastic promotional sports water bottles will work for promoting your business. While they are among the least expensive water bottles, their shortcomings may more than offset any cost savings that you might derive, so be careful when making this decision for your business.
