Too bad you can't afford to buy the Hawaiian island of Lanai, as the Maui News and many others say tech billionaire Larry Ellison is doing. But what if you had 4,000 Aloha shirts? Would you even need to visit the islands? If you had 4,000 Aloha shirts, maybe, in a way, you'd be there already. In bleak cubicle moments, you'd glance at the happy floral pattern draped from your shoulder, or finger the sturdy fabric and genuine island stitching at the point of your hip. Maybe, if you had 4,000 Aloha shirts, you'd proudly don another each day for a decade, and still have 350 shirts to spare.

The "Free Shabazz" movement made its way from the Pauley Pavilion stands onto the court Tuesday.  In an apparent sign of solidarity toward their fellow freshman, Kyle Anderson, Tony Parker and Jordan Adams wore light-blue "Free Shabazz" T-shirts, bearing the face of Shabazz Muhammad in silhouette with the words "Free Shabazz" underneath, during warm-ups before the Bruins played UC Irvine. The highly touted Muhammad was declared ineligible by the NCAA Nov. 9 after an investigation found a violation of amateurism issues; a timeline for resolution of his case is unclear.

When U.S. Soccer dumped the red-striped "Where's Waldo" jerseys it debuted in 2012, the feeling was whatever it picked had to be better. Oops. Wrong again. The new Nike white home jerseys unveiled this week and heavily criticized by fans look more like polo shirts than soccer uniforms with full collars. The shirts, which the U.S. will wear in this summer's World Cup in Brazil, also have red trim on the collars and sleeves, the centennial U.S. Soccer patch on the left breast and a blue Nike swoosh on the right side.

Here's how valuable European soccer has become to sponsors: Now companies are buying advertising space on the inside of team uniforms. La Liga giant Barcelona has signed an agreement with Santa Clara-based chipmaker Intel in which the company's logo will be printed on the underside of the team's jerseys, meaning it will be visible only if players decide to lift their shirts for any reason. The ads reportedly will cost Intel a very visible $34.3 million. The shirts will make their debut Saturday when Barcelona meets Villarreal at the Camp Nou, although there's a good chance no one will notice.

The Houston Texans finally made it over the hump last season, making the playoffs for the first time in franchise history. Well, except for that time back in 1961, when they won the AFC title. What? You don't believe me? I've got the Old Navy T-shirt to prove it. See, it says right there, "Houston Texans, 1961 AFC Champions. " Now I know that you might think the Texans did not exist back in 1961. And neither did the AFC for that matter. But if you can't believe an Old Navy T-shirt, what can you believe?

LAS VEGAS -- It's Arizona in a rout at the Pac-12 Conference basketball tournament. That's not a prediction for tonight's semifinal game against UCLA. It's based on a highly unscientific poll to determine the conference's best fans. The Wildcats have 60% of the fans at the tournament, judging by the gear people were wearing as they passed the Starbucks at the MGM Grand from 12:30 to 1 p.m. on Friday. The breakdown of the 176 shirts: Arizona, 105: Either the Wildcats' fans really love their team or they really love gambling.

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. said it would stop selling several T-shirts that a group of teenage girls found offensive. The Women & Girls Foundation of Southwest Pennsylvania objected to shirts for women emblazoned with sayings such as "Who needs brains when you have these?" and "I had a nightmare I was a brunette." "We recognize that the shirts in question, while meant to be humorous, might be troubling to some," the company said in a statement.

A basic plaid button-down intertwined over a simple blue denim shirt evoked more emotion from the reticent Ennis Del Mar than any words Heath Ledger could've spoken in "Brokeback Mountain." Ennis discovered the two lonely shirts hanging in a closet after the death of his lover Jack Twist, played by Jake Gyllenhaal. Symbolic of their lifelong forbidden relationship is that Jack's denim was draped over Ennis' plaid as if to protect him.

Campus police ejected Birmingham High School booster parents who were attempting to sell "Save the Braves" T-shirts Friday evening on the campus in opposition to a Board of Education policy banning Indian mascots. Calling the school policy a case of "government completely out of control," parent Frank Arrigo said, "This is stupid." Arrigo and another parent, Jack McGrath, were spearheading the effort to sell the shirts and "save the Braves."

SAN FRANCISCO - An attorney is vowing to appeal a federal court ruling that a Northern California high school that asked students to remove American flag shirts on Cinco de Mayo acted reasonably to avoid igniting ethnic tensions. The ruling stemmed from a 2010 incident that provoked angry commentary across the country and a lawsuit by students claiming their constitutional rights had been violated. An attorney for three students who sued said he would ask a larger panel of the 9th Circuit to overturn the ruling.

SAN FRANCISCO - A Northern California high school did not violate the constitutional rights of students when it ordered them to remove shirts emblazoned with the American flag during a celebration of Cinco De Mayo, a federal appeals court decided unanimously Thursday. A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9 th Circuit Court of Appeals said administrators at Live Oak School in the Morgan Hill Unified School District had reason to fear that a potentially violent, race-related disturbance might occur during the school-sanctioned celebration of the Mexican holiday in 2010.

An Adidas marketing campaign that was apparently intended to, um, increase the number of passes attempted at this summer's World Cup soccer tournament has run afoul of Brazilian authorities, who have asked the company to stop selling a pair of racy T-shirts. One design shows a woman on a beach in a bikini, arms open, next to the caption "Lookin' to Score. " The other features an "I Love Brazil" heart with the heart made to resemble an inverted buttocks wearing a thong bikini. The reaction at the Brazilian tourist board, Embratur, was as angry as it was swift.

SAN FRANCISCO - A public elementary school decided in 2011 to require students to wear a uniform with the school's motto, "Tomorrow's Leaders," emblazoned in small letters on the shirts around a gopher, the campus mascot. One parent objected to the uniforms and eventually sued, contending they violated the 1st Amendment's guarantee of free speech. In a unanimous ruling Friday, a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit largely agreed with her. The panel said the words "Tomorrow's Leaders" potentially violated students' right to free speech and the uniform policy must go unless the school district can justify it under a legal standard that is difficult to meet.

A federal judge barred the state from prosecuting an online merchant who sells shirts that list names of thousands of troops killed in Iraq. U.S. District Judge Neil Wake did not strike down the 2007 law against selling products that use military casualties' names without families' permission. But he ruled that using the law to prosecute Dan Frazier would violate the Flagstaff man's 1st Amendment rights because his "Bush Lied -- They Died" shirts are "core political speech." "It is impossible to separate the political from the commercial aspects of that display," Wake wrote.

I am writing in regards to Sandy Banks' column ("Clothier's Image Is Ill-Fitting," April 23) about the Abercrombie & Fitch T-shirts that sparked protests and angry phone calls to A&F's corporate office to pull the shirts off the shelves. Quite frankly, I don't understand what all the fuss is about. I am a first-generation Chinese immigrant myself, and I found those shirts hilariously funny. Those Asian students need to worry more about their studies than protesting something as trivial as this!

The person who chose the image for an item on sale on the Florida State website may have been an Auburn fan. For a few hours after the game, you could buy a nice gray T-shirt that had an interesting error: OMG this is awesome pic.twitter.com/f9UIzolbVA - *kRiStEn* (@kswift_RN) January 7, 2014 Do you see the mistake? I'm pretty sure Auburn did not win that game. The error was corrected, but not before several Florida State and Auburn fans discovered it and tweeted it out.

Fashion model Behati Prinsloo has plopped down on this particular couch in this particular atelier in downtown Los Angeles on this particular mid-December evening to talk about her new creative collaboration with L.A.-based denim label THVM. Thanks to a rapidly rising professional profile - not to mention her engagement to Maroon 5 frontman and "The Voice" coach Adam Levine - she's doing more than introducing around a dozen pieces of apparel to the world. She's been introducing herself too. Not that Behati (pronounced Bee-OTT-ee)
