This Ready to Wear Indonesian Batik Shirt is a favourite of mine. I bought it a long time ago and it is part of my Batik shirt rotation. The photo was taken about two months ago at an afternoon lunch function at a family friend's place.

The Aloha or the Hawaii type patterned shirt is a staple in Hawaii where it is even allowed as 'businesswear' in most cases except the most formal events on the island. It is actually quite like the batik shirts we use in Malaysia and in Indonesia. The short sleeve version of course.

A noted Anglophile. HRH Sultan Ibrahim of Johor in the 1920s. Most probably on one of his many voyages to and from England. Note the cut of the suit (natural unpadded shoulders, short length) and the length of the trousers (without any break at the bottom).
