Hello All - I'm a newbie :) I asked a buddy of mine about a jacket I had acquired that looks pretty similar to a captains Blazer. I was exited at first as I thought it went along with the the pop culture of tiki. I was surprised to hear that it in fact does not fit in the tiki culture. Why do I see so much of it at Tiki Bars and events?

It’s getting more and more difficult to separate beach themes and Tiki. For an insightful look at Tiki take a look at The book of Tiki by Sven Kirsten. I think each person can decide for themselves how they want their Tiki bar to look, but it is slowly being diluted with parrots, neon signs and jimmy buffet.
