DaVinci California

As soon as the Flea's ad revenue make me independently wealthy I will lounge around in DaVinci originals drinking cocktails.

DaVinci of California was originally started in the late 1940s producing high quality leisure suits. IN 1952 DaVinci became known for its classic two tone button down woven shirts, and fashion knits called Ban-lons. Hollywood, 1952: DaVinci Clothing is born and quickly becomes the style of choice for members of the swinging Rat Pack. Frank, Dean, and Sammy can't get enough and the rest of Hollywood is quick to follow.

Saw some of those last weekend in Willow Glen, but with a Tiki influence - so much better than that Tommy Bahama shlock. Gotta have the pineapples.
